Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ~ Did you know . . .

Tiggerific+Tuesday+Trivia Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia: Epcots Soarin Today is the Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia Blog Hop hosted by Disney Babies Blog, Heidi's Head, Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and My Dreams of Disney.  I love this blog hop because I have really learned a lot of little Disney tidbits each week, which just give me a better appreciation of Walt Disney and his imagination.  This week I am sharing a tip from an attraction in Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  I used the app Walt Disney World Fun Facts to find this bit of Disney trivia.  I can say I have never taken the time to notice the names of the trains, but as always, so creative and perfect for this attraction!

Bug Thunder Mountain Railroad features 6 trains ~ I.B. Hearty, I.M. Brave, I.M. Fearless, U.R. Bold, U.R. Daring and U.R.Courageous.

During our recent trip, my littlest one, Emily, experienced Big Thunder Mountain for the first time.  She absolutely loved it!  Even better, she rode along with my Uncle Mike, who had not been to Walt Disney World since 1982!  I'll share more about her experience in a future post, but it was definitely a special moment for our vacation.

Share your favorite bit of Disney trivia and see what everyone else shared too!  It is a great way to get a little Disney in your day and learn something new!

Love BTMR, it's so fun to ride at night during Fireworks! Looks like Emily had a great first ride. The names of the trains are so fun. Thanks for sharing your trivia.

I will have to be sure we ride it at night next time! That sound slike a special experience! Emily is our youngest and our only thrill ride seeker! :-)

She cannot wait to go on this again. She is already talking about it and we haven't even set dates yet for our next trip!
