THE MOUSY MINDBOGGLER
If you subscribe to the AllEars® Weekly Newsletter, you'll know that we run a little game called the Mousy Mindboggler. Sometimes it's a word game, sometimes it's a riddle, sometimes it's some other brain-teasing challenge -- but it's always fun!
Once each month, in the AllEars® Bits and Bites issue, our friend James Dezern (known as "dzneynut" around several Disney discussion forums) supplies us with a puzzle of his own design. The puzzles have some sort of Disney theme, of course, but will not be restricted to the Disney theme parks. The type of puzzle is up to James. Also up to him? The bestowing of a prize -- a collectible Disney pin from his extensive collection.
Around the middle of each month, James also Shares the Magic in another way -- by posting a puzzle here in this AllEars.Net Guest Blog. Again, the subject of the puzzle will vary, and James will award the winner of the challenge a collectible Disney pin!
Here's the link to this month's puzzle:
So... Think you know Disney inside and out? Put on your thinking cap!
This month we continue with our series of puzzles based on the most popular Disney animated characters. The next character is one of the so-called "Fab 5," Donald Duck. (The others are Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Pluto!)
There is a word bank for this particular puzzle, but beware, not all of the words in the word bank are used.
The object is to have fun, of course, but if you want a chance to win a Disney collectible pin, arrange the letters that are circled in the puzzle to come up with the answer to the bonus question, which relates to the puzzle theme. Send your resulting answer IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF AN EMAIL addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send the bonus term or phrase no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on February 5, 2014. All correct answers will be entered into a random drawing, and the winner will be awarded a Disney pin. The answers and drawing winner will be posted in this Guest Blog, along with a new puzzle, in mid-February.
Here is the answer key to last month's Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler:
The answer to the bonus clue was, of course, IllumiNations. During the holiday season, after the regular IllumiNations nighttime show is finished, Disney adds a special holiday tag, which includes narration by Walter Cronkite, "Let There Be Peace on Earth" sung by the Boys Choir of Harlem, and "Peace on Earth," spoken in the different languages of the World Showcase. There are so many fireworks in the finale of this segment, that you have no problem hearing and feeling them in your chest! It is quite moving and not to be missed.
The winner of this month's random drawing from 91 correct responses was Doris B., of Vienna, ME, who will receive a Disney collectible pin.
Thanks so much for playing, and Happy New Year!
P.S. We are quickly coming up on our first anniversary of running these puzzles -- can you believe it? James would love to hear some feedback, or any ideas for themes you'd like to a see covered. Drop James a line at email@example.com.
