    I would prefer that but as long as the two-digit years don't make up too many of these I don't mind. Every fifth one or so does not seem too bad, the same way I'm not a big fan of using prices too often as well. And for the preson who is running out of ideas, use google the number you're working on plus a few WDW related keywords (to narrow the search), you can even use the advanced search options to search a specific site (I've used it with the attraction of the week website a few times). Or alternately if the site you like the most has it's own search function like this site or the allearsnet.com site you can use that, still once you do your search you may end up with a lot of stuff to wade through that you don't want to use like prices and dates, but it only takes a few minutes the sample that comes up with the search is ususally quite enough to eliminate the ones you don't want. now back to our regularly scheduled numeric post:

    the blue-roofed five-story Goju-no-to pagoda, inspired by a shrine built at Nara in 700 A.D. Each of the levels of the 85-foot tall pagoda represents an element, earth, water, fire, wind and sky. Buddhists, which make up a large percentage of the Japanese population, believe all things are created from these elements.

    Let's see - I was asked to do an 86 - I was even given suggestions - BUT - I decided to do my own little research --

    I hope this counts - if it doesnt- I have something from Disneyland Paris (which I am pretty sure would not count)

    Legendary Disney Animator Marc Davis died at Age 86. He was the creator of Tink, Briar Rose and Cinderella. After his retirement, he returned to Imagineering as a consultant on ``World of Motion'' for EPCOT Center.

    I know - its a bit dark - but hey - its an 86

    Brian, I would hope that I was more than just another 'person' around here, and I'm perfectly capable of using Google, trust me! I was just commenting on how it was getting more difficult to come up with WDW related numbers.
    In 1990, guests could cast their vote in CommuniCore for the "Person of the Century," choosing from a list of 89 nominees.

    oops! Sorry James no offense intended, I didn't pay much attention to "who" said they were running out of ideas as I realized I had an idea that could "help" I did figure it might help many folks out when I wrote it, I should have worded it more to reflect that I see how that could have came off the wrong way, once again my apologies. and one more refinement I've added to that that I neglected to mention is that if you put the number you are searching for in quotes with a another word like has or is you get fewer hits but with a better percentage of some that may be useful for instance searching the phrase: epcot "is 86" got me a factoid that Splash mountain is 86 feet tall from the ground to the top of the tree on Chick-A-Pin hill

    and heres a non googled factoid for you Walt Disney World has 90 holes of golf you can play using a golf cart (Oak Trial is a walking course)

    Well I don't usually post twice in a row but it has been two weeks

    so here's a 91 from an aug 2003 eyes and ears

    New floating docks benefit
    Magic Kingdom guests, Cast
    New floating docks in Seven Seas
    Lagoon are improving the operational
    abilities of the ferryboats that transport
    guests between the Transportation and
    Ticket Center and the Magic Kingdom
    Park.
    Unlike the previous landings at these
    locations, each new dock stretches about 91
    feet from the waiting areas over the lagoon.
    The docks raise and lower with fluctu-
    ating water levels, allowing the ferryboats
    to operate even during extreme wet or
    dry seasons.
    Workers also modified the boarding
    platforms of all three boats to meet the new
    gangways, making guest travel on and off
    the boats more efficient.
    Many teams, including
    Watercraft Transportation and
    Watercraft Transportation
    Maintenance, Services for
    Guests with Disabilities, Facility
    Asset Management, Design and
    Engineering, Magic Kingdom
    Maintenance, Walt Disney
    Imagineering and Safety, worked together
    in the planning and construction process.
    Watercraft Cast Members, who offered
    ideas and suggestions addressing docking
    issues and operational needs, said they’re
    pleased with the new docks.
    “These docks are a tremendous
    improvement for our guests,” said
    Watercraft Area Manager Ken McKelvy.
    “During very dry seasons when the lake
    was very low, there were times the
    ferryboats couldn’t accommodate guests
    with wheelchairs and electronic
    convenience vehicles. Now we’ll be able
    to accommodate everyone during low
    and high lake levels.”
