Ms. Lost found the backstage scene at the Muppet Vision 3-D attraction in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The attraction is a classic Muppet show, complete with your favorite characters. The pre-show, though, is quite fun in its own right, so don’t worry about rushing into the theater when there’s so much fun to be had before the show begins!

The festive scene pictured was one of the buildings adorned by the Osborne Spectacle of Lights. This display is located on the Avenue of America in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The show is from Jennings Osborne, who created a 1,000 light display for his daughter in Arkansas in 1986. Through the years, the light display continued to grow, reaching over three million lights. However, his neighbors protested, eventually winning a legal battle causing him to cease and desist with the lights already. This is when Disney stepped in and asked Mr. Osborne if he’d like to display them at Walt Disney World. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has continued to add to the display, which now features over five million lights that are synchronized to music throughout the evening. If you look closely, you may even find a few hidden Mickeys.

The couple pictured here was Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen. They can be found in the limited-time show “Princess Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee.” While this photo was snapped at the Magic Kingdom in Florida, the show can be found in the thematically appropriate New Orleans Square in Disneyland as well. (And if you guessed either location, you’re answer was right!) The movie, The Princess and the Frog opened this past weekend at theaters and ticket sales for opening weekend were around $25 million.

The off-center photo in our was snapped as Ms. Lost was running over to Primeval Whirl in the DinoLand USA at Animal Kingdom park. Themed as a time travel ride, this spinning roller coaster has been nicknamed “Primeval Hurl” by some who may not enjoy spinning rides very much.

Although this caged bird in our could have easily fit in with several locations, it can actually be found at Epcot’s Mexico pavilion. The bird is featured in one of the Kim Possible adventures that takes guests through the various pavilions in World Showcase.

The jack-o-lanterns pictured here can be found at the Magic Kingdom, in the grassy area below the train station. They are out to greet guests attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. While the pumpkins, scarecrows, and orange bunting were out in abundance, the same can’t be true for cool fall weather. By all accounts, the heat and humidity stayed around for the fall revelers this year.

The fire hydrant was indeed located at Animal Kingdom. A few observant readers even recognized that it was near the Pizzafari restaurant. One of the joys of a Disney vacation is being completely immersed in the theming, right down to the safety devices. These little touches really add to the experience of being transformed to another world.

The statue pictured was a little difficult to place. Ms. Lost found it, and its twin, in the Japan pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase. The two statues can be found near an archway near the back of the pavilion. Beyond the archway is an entrance to the Mitsukoshi Department Store and the Bijutsu-kan Gallery exhibit: “The Kitahara Collection of Tin-Toys.”

Ms. Lost and and her friend Malcolm, who snapped this photo, were indeed hanging out at the Carousel of Progress. This beloved attraction can be found at the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World. The photo is looking at the window in the kitchen of the house. The attraction was first introduced at the 1964 World’s Fair and has been at Walt Disney World since its opening in 1971.

Hmmmm, apparently Ms. Lost wasn’t lost at all. If she would have just looked around, she would have seen hundreds of her Magically Speaking friends right there with her. A record number of you knew that she was indeed on the Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Specifically, she was in the Casablanca scene watching Humphry Bogart and Ingrid Bergman recreate their famous farewell scene. Thanks for the offers to send us the specific dialogues, too! We are sure Ms. Lost will never be lost there again!

Ms. Lost found this unhappy feline at the Villains in Vogue shop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The merchandise in this store features the darker side of Disney films — the villains! The cats are Si and Am, the siamese cats from Lady and the Tramp.

Ms. Lost found the happy little pig pictured here at The Great Piggy Bank Adventure. This interactive exhibit, sponsored by T. Rowe Price, opened in Innoventions at Epcot on May 18. The exhibit teaches about money management. Some parents have found that Disney is a great place to teach kids about setting goals with their money, especially in light of the many temptations that can be found throughout the theme parks and resorts.

As one reader put it, regarding this photo, “Finally, an easy one!” The rodent pictured is Remy, from Ratatouille. This little guy visits tables now at Les Chefs de France. Although it might seem odd to have a rat wandering around an eating establishment, this little chef stays on his cart, chatting with guests and his friend who takes him around the restaurant.

The birds pictured weren’t from a Disney theme park at all. As you might have caught on, it was our cruise issue, so Ms. Lost had snapped the photo while on a Disney cruise. She found these creatures at the Head’s Up bar on Castaway Cay. Disney’s private island in the Caribbean has all sorts of treasures to explore. This locale between the family beach and the sports beach features frozen drinks and cocktails for those spending the day on the island.

The menu pictured here wasn’t from a restaurant at all. It can be found in the queue area of Expedition Everest. Although the line for this ride can be long at times, it is filled with amazing artifacts not only from real Everest expeditions, but also many items that set the background story of the ride. The queue is so well done, it is at times difficult to determine if this story has been “imagineered” or if you actually are about to travel into the Yeti’s territory.

The book pictured was a bit tricky. In fact, so tricky that apparently we stumped all of you! The book in the photo, although it looked like something from Expedition Everest, can actually be found just past the lobby of the Tower of Terror! When you enter the room where you watch the TV clip, the book is open (I believe on a stand). You pass by as you exit the room to enter the elevators. Perhaps the anticipation of being dropped in an elevator blocks out the hidden details of the queue.

We’ll put the pin back in the prize bin for next time!

The attraction pictured here is currently under rehab, but will reopen July 1. It is, as you might have guessed, the Hall of Presidents. The giant tarp covering the building is printed with an image of the building, so the skyline of Liberty Square remains somewhat the same during the refurb.

The beautiful sunset pictured here might have been a little tricky to place. Ms. Lost actually ended her day in the World Showcase at Epcot, and the photo was of the Canada pavilion as seen across the lagoon. We think she was likely trying to seek out the perfect location to catch a snack and watch “Illuminations.”

After the photo below, we had an unusually high number of e-mails with song lyrics. As many of you put it, Ms. Lost could be found “In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room.” More accurately, the animatronic bird can be found in The Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management in the Magic Kingdom. The attraction became the center of controversy when it reopened in April 1998 after a seven-month refurbishment. The original attraction can still be found in Disneyland, without any of the Under New Management updates.

The skinny fellow is located in Animal Kingdom. Although it does resemble a similar creature at the new T-Rex restaurant, this particular dino can be found near the Boneyard playground on the Oldengate Bridge. The replica fossil is cast from an original found in 1900. Although the original fossil was found in Colorado, its current home is the Field Museum in Chicago. The brachiosaurus is 52 feet tall and over 80 feet long.

Yes, of course you know where the Flubber storage door pictured here is located. The door can be seen while in the queue for Journey Into Your Imagination with Figment. Depending on how short the line is, it’s easy to walk right past some of the great theming in the queue area on your way to the ride. In fact, Professor Philip Brainard (from Flubber) along with Dr. Wayne Szalinski (from the Honey, I Shrunk the… movies), and Dr. Nigel Channing (who plays prominently in the ride) all have offices in the Imagination pavilion.

Well, the picure below found a small editing snafu! The attraction in the photo really was the Maelstrom in Norway, even though in our instructions we said it wasn’t. Thanks to the many readers who pointed that out. The photo was indeed the part of the ride that looks as though you’re about to go over the falls.

Since we fear we may have confused some with the instructions last issue, we’re giving out two prizes. One for a random entry from the correct answers and one from the incorrect answers. Congratulations to Jo Ann B. and Hans P., who are the winners of the random drawings and Disney trading pins.

The sign pictured here was a bit of a challenge for our readers (and editors, too!). It can be found in Africa at the Animal Kingdom park. This park has many interesting corners and locations that really help guests feel as if they have been transported from Florida to Africa.

The Warden Post pictured here can be found at none other than the Kilimanjaro Safari exit. While many people rush past the post in their excitement from the ride, we did hear from a some of you who do quite the opposite. This is a favorite sport for some to record the safari experience with a photo of the family.

The quiet little shop pictured here is a great place to stop for some tea. It is The Tea Caddy in the United Kingdom pavilion of Epcot. This charming shop sells bagged and loose Twinings teas, teacups, teapots, and an assortment of British candy.
