    Another Tea cup question

    Well I can't answer the previous question, but, I have another, does anyone know when the Mad Tea Party at the Magic Kingdom got its cover? Here's a picture without it

    Brian... not 100% sure right off the top of my head. I do have some old paper items that I can look through. I do know that accoridng to my 1979 park map (handy, of course), the cover was already installed by that time.

    I believe the picture above was taken in 1973. I can only find a vague reference to the cover being added within the first few years of the park opening, so it was probably done in 1974.

    How about Long Island Iced Tea?

    Honestly, in trying to answer this question you have to also ask with what. The standard would be gallons of distilled water (8 pounds/), but you could also fill with pop/soda/soda pop, gasoline, paint, milk, feathers, lead, corn, etc. Get my drift? There is a difference between weight and volume; dry and liquid; US and Canadian. Also you have to take into account temperature, pressure, and altitude. So, you see the answer is not that simple.
