Do you start the day with a brisk adventure in the forest, or by playing a classical piece on a banded, bulbous, snarfblatt? Or do you read a book, or maybe two or three? Perhaps you indulge in a bit of mid-day scheming while you’re munching on a delicious red apple? The possibilities are endless, but the answers at our Trivia Night are not! It’s time to be our guest and put your Disney knowledge to the test!

Join us for a night of nostalgia as we revisit some of your favorite House of Mouse flicks! Questions will focus mostly on Disney’s classic animated films, from 1937’s Snow White to 2013’s Frozen, with a little Pixar trivia thrown in. The truest Disney fans will be outed!

We’ll provide soda/water and desserts; chip in for pizza is $2. We'll meet in the Lovell Room--ask the front desk for directions if you get lost. And if you feel so inclined, wear your Disney gear to get in the spirit!

Part of our #ThrowbackThursdays programming for the 18-35 year old age group. To register, please go to meetup.com. (We're not going to card anyone, so while the event is geared toward ages 18 and up, if you’re a little younger/older, we won’t know! smiley)
