    Question The Disney Code - ANSWERS AND WINNER!

    Hi all,
    I dug up an incomplete Disney World quiz (putting it lightly) that never got totally finished, it was supposed to be huge and complex. And while it's still complex, it's not as huge as it once was intended to be. I've put it in a Word Document format, including all the rules and questions in a nicer format. The contest runs through June 19, 2006. High difficulty level on this one, although it's implied that using other sources is suggested

    This contest mixed Disney World culture with world culture/pop culture freely, so it's probably an advantage to be familiar with things other than WDW. That is, it's not an entirely Disney game! And remember to check this thread for updates and clarifications!

    First Prize: $20 in Disney Dollars

    sounds like fun!!
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

    Fun?? You haven't looked at it yet, have you Kyle?
    Definitely challenging!
    Brant, is the year in question# 3 correct? 1880?
    And would you mind verifying the coordinates in question# 9? I'm not getting a resort?

    The year is #3 is correct, the song was first performed in the year 1880.

    The coordinates for #9 I double-checked. There is a negative sign before the second coordinates that is hard to see on the document file. For question #9 you may also use the following GPS format:
    Lat= 28 DEGREES XX MINUTES 00 SECONDS N
    Long= 81 DEGREES YY MINUTES 25 SECONDS W

    Terra-server.com seems to be be the best/easiest site to use for this question, if it helps. Information about Test Track vehicles have been gotten using hiddenmickeys.org and also various direct sources from WDW.

    One additional update, the image in question number 4 is NOT the full image, just a cropped out square taken directly from it. The image, aside from may or may not have rotated, is otherwise unaltered.

    Thanks for alerting me to that ERich. Guessing it's not so impossible for ya anymore if you got that one?


    CORRECTION:
    #11 should have 11 spaces total, it has been corrected in the online document file and if using the version that had 10 spaces for question 11, please add one space immediately before space numbered 27.

    This is probably a problem of having the document file in Word format, you need some program on your computer that has the font "Times New Roman" the most common font for word processors. If anyone has a program and could volunteer to change the document file into a PDF format?

    I went through it, it all checks out for me.

    Additional note: ALthough the Document file says the deadline is June 9, 2006, it has been extended to June 19, 2006.

    Hint

    ERich, you probably have the wrong instrument. Don't obsess over it, if you're not sure. Do the ones you know and try to solve parts of the phrase, then work backwards to get some of the clues. For instance, the last one is a nice long name you should be able to figure out, which gives you 8 letters in the phrase. If you figure out some of the words in the phrase, then you can substitute those letters back into the clues.
    Okay, I guess I've said enough!
