The Bats of Maharajah Jungle Trek for the Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia Blog Hop

The Maharajah Jungle Trek is one of my favorite parts of Disney's Animal Kingdom.  There is so much to see and learn. As a mom of a child who absolutely loves learning about animals, we particularly like that we can just stroll through this attraction and enjoy the sites at our own pace.  I was excited to find this fun bit of trivia for this week's Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia Blog Hop hosted by Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, My Dreams of Disney and Heidi's Head.

The bats in the Maharajah Jungle Trek are all trained to respond on cue.  A dog whistle signals to them that the doors are opening and they can go in. Critics said it couldn't be done, but Disney proved them wrong.

Who knew you could train bats?  It is no surprise to me that Disney succeeds at something they were told was impossible!

I found this little tidbit of trivia in the Walt Disney World Fun Facts app, which I downloaded from the Google Play Store. Unfortunately, it seems to no longer be available, but if I find the link, I will update this post to include it!

What is your favorite part of the Maharajah Jungle Trek?

Make sure you head over to
to all the trivia everyone shared.  Who knows, maybe you will learn something new today!
