    That was also a name they used, but the more famous name was Firehouse Five plus 2. They used a converted fire engine to arrive at their venues.

    The Carolwood Pacific was the name of Walt Disney's miniature 1/8 scale railroad that he built in the backyard of their Holmby Hills, CA home.

    Well kind of, It was put there so there would be an "element of surprise". So you couldn't see what was ahead of you.

    You all seem so knowledgeable about Walt Disney World so you will probably get this one right away (or straight away as the Brits would say). I seem to stump a bunch of so called Disney experts so here goes.

    What company sponsored Space Mountain back in the late 1970s to early 1980s time frame?

    What was the name of the company mascot and was clearly visible as you entered the attraction?

    Outstanding Tiggerguy! You'd be suprised at how many people didn't know the dog's name was Nipper. Most thought his name was Victor as in RCA Victor.

    How about another one - you'll really impress me if you get this one. Another Space Mountain question in the early 1980s.

    After the ride on the conveyer belt there was a TV set or video monitor that featured a popular 1980s music group in a concert clip.

    Can you name the group and what song were they performing?

    I hadn't heard about this Pipper but I'm thinking it would be particularly approprite if it was something by Planet P since all their songs were basically sc-fi or space related (and their first album certainly came out in the correct time frame)
