Trivia: Disneylandia Minutiae Sempler Absurda Giveaway

It's no secret to my regular readership that I'm a fan of Disney and especially the history of Disney films and Disneyland. This week I came across a book that I forgot I own, Magic Quizdom: Disneylandia Minutiae Sempler Absurda by Kevin Yee and Jason Schultz--aka: Disneyland Trivia!

The book is divided into sections by each 'land' within Disneyland, and then separated further by the level of difficulty of the questions. I thought it might be fun to make this an occasional feature for those of you among us that are also lover's of the land that Uncle Walt built.

Answer the questions below by leaving a comment. Contest is open until next Saturday, June 20, 2009 at 11:00 A.M. The person who answers the most questions correctly will win a set of our note cards featuring random images from Disneyland photographed by yours truly!

Let's give it a go, shall we? Since the first area you encounter upon entry to Disneyland is Main Street, U.S.A., we'll start there as well...
