Day 2 of the 31DBBB:Making a List

by Kelly H Russo on July 20, 2010

So today is day 2 in the SITSgirls problogger challenge. Today’s task is to write a list post. The purpose of a list post is to provide your readers with information that is easy to read and spread. I have never done something like this before but I have already read a few really good ones over on the community forum where people are posting there links to there blog.

I am staying in my comfort zone here which is Disney, shocking I know. I was thinking fun and interesting things that I could share and I turned that into a list.

So here we go….

1. The Disney Cruise Line ships use the first seven notes of the “When You Wish Upon a Star” song melody as their horn signals. It is wicked cool.

2. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is 403 acres, the company’s largest theme park. The park’s centerpiece is The Tree of Life, 14 stories high and 50 feet wide at its trunk.

3. Taking place every cruise onboard the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, the “Pirates IN the Caribbean” deck party features the only fireworks display at sea. I was able to see this in April and it was amazing.

4. Castaway Cay is the only private island in the cruise industry where the ship docks alongside so guests do not have to tender to land. Disney’s Private island is spectacular check it out here http://www.visitcastawaycay.com

5. The Gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa takes 800 pounds of flour, 600 pounds of sugar and 1,050 pounds of honey to build it.

6. Disney World in Florida has 8 Deluxe Villa Resorts, 8 Deluxe Resorts, 5 Moderate Resorts, and 4 Value Resorts. If you wanted to stay in all the guestrooms in all of the hotels and resorts currently open on Walt Disney World property (at a rate of one per night), it would take more than 68 years.

7. In Disneyland there is a private members only club called Club 33. It is located in New Orleans Square on the second floor near the Bayou Restaurant.

8. Visitors to Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, can catch a glimpse of the ghost ship Flying Dutchman – the actual, full-size studio prop from the Disney film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Dead Man’s Chest moored in the waters just offshore. It is very cool!

9. Disney’s Wedding Pavilion was designed to provide the bride and groom a view of Magic Kingdom’s Cinderella Castle while standing at the altar.

10. You can use my FREE Disney Vacation planning services to help you book and plan your next Disney Destination Vacation!

Visiting from the #31DBB Challenge! What an interesting list! I haven’t been to Disney World since high school (ages ago) and hope to go in a few years when the kids are old enough to enjoy.
