18. Walt Disney World Trivia App

Cell phones have come a long way over the past 5 years, and it can be said that they are helping to define what we call "modern technology."  With the ability to access the internet from almost anywhere in the country to taking high definition photos and videos, today's cell phones are certainly cutting edge.  As I have mentioned in previous articles, the leader in this field is Apple with their iPhones, iPods and iPads.  There are over 300,000 applications or "apps" available in the iTunes store.  You can find everything from productivity software to social networking apps to games.  Today, for the first time in this blog, I'd like to talk about a game.

The Walt Disney World Trivia App is really a simple quiz game that tests your knowledge of WDW.  This app features over 250 questions about Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and other Disney World locations like the water parks and Downtown Disney.  The questions are multiple choice with four potential answers.  There are three forms of gameplay with the Magic Mode being the main one.  Here you answer questions until you get one wrong and the game is over.  At the end, your score is published on the online leaderboard so you can see where you rank among the other players from all over the world.  I'm proud to say that I have made it atop the list on several occasions.  That can be chalked up to either too much time on my hands or the fact that I'm a complete Disney World geek!

This game is a lot of fun to play when you are just looking to pass the time.  I find myself playing it when on hold with some large company's customer service hotline or even when I'm just stuck in traffic.  It gets pretty exciting when you get up over 200 questions answered in a row because you know there is a chance for a perfect score.  For those of you with a portable device that starts with the letter "i," I definitely think that heading over to the iTunes store and spending $2.99 on the Walt Disney World Trivia App is worth it.  Let me know if you ever approach a perfect score.  Are you up for the challenge?

Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward.  See ya real soon!
