How many drummers were used per night during the original Tapestry of Nations parade at Epcot?

Why do I have a feeling that this is going to become a UAB versions of "High or Low"...? Smile

Ok, now we are just guessing. Let's say lower than 31. : )

So, how would it be any other way, assuming that we weren't in the show Smile

28?

I'll guess that it's a multiple of 2, as I think I recall 2 drummers per float, or at least an even number. My next guess will be 30.

Correct 30, it is! Was that a hard one? Well, at any rate there were 10 drumers and 3 parade units (Mex-Germany)(Germany-Morocco)(Morocco-UK) No one ever wanted the Mor to UK section as it went up and down a rather big hill.

You're up! Very Happy

I would say that was a difficult one. The ones with seemingly random numbers are always tough for me.

Do you know why Mor to UK is uphill? Was that a conscious design decision by the Epcot engineers? That's interesting...

New question:
What is the Dominguez Palm and what is significant about it? Hint: I read about this in the book, 101 Things You Never Knew about Disneyland.

OK, a few slight hints: Based on the book that I provided, you can tell what park it's located in. Also, think about where you might what the object is, and where you would most likely find one of them. I did a Google search and did find a few hits on this item, so it doesn't seem to be completely limited to the book.

Correct - the tree was on the land owned by the Dominguez family when Walt bought the property. It was planted in 1896 and was a wedding present passed down through the generations. Walt preserved the palm, and when the Jungle Cruise queue was redone in 1994, the new queue building was built right up against it with no room to spare. It's on the right side of the building.

Check out: http://www.footnote.com/topicpage.php?tp=132. And check out the aerial view that has the tree circled. I thought it was neat.

You're up!
