These 1000 brand-new questions (and answers) are the perfect companion for your next Disney trip, or for whenever you need to mainline a quick burst of the magic. Each quiz takes only a few minutes — perfect for on-the-go (or stuck in a line) Disney fans who crave the sort of knowledge not found in other trivia books.

1000 Really, Really Hard Disney Trivia Stumpers

Welcome to The World’s Toughest Disney Quiz Book: Volume 4.

I was asked recently what it was that sets these books apart from other quiz books. The answer is simple: it’s the level of difficulty. The best example that I can think of is to look at questions about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Other trivia quizzes might ask you to simply name all of the dwarfs. I wouldn’t insult your intelligence on such a simple question, but I would challenge your knowledge by asking what kind of pie Snow White made for them.

These questions are tough, yes. Deliberately so. The clue’s in the title. You probably won’t know the answer to very many of these questions, but that’s not really the point. Sometimes trivia quizzes can be just an excuse for the smart kids to show off. This one’s a bit different. You might get some right (and if you do, give yourself a pat on the back from me), but every one that you don’t will teach you something, a little extra nugget of information that will add to your enjoyment of the films, the theme parks, or the televisions shows.

So if you want to gain more in-depth knowledge about the Walt Disney Company and all its works, you can do a lot worse than spend your time browsing through The World’s Toughest Disney Quiz Book: Volume 4.

We're always in the market for new authors with great ideas. Or great authors with new ideas. Whichever type of author you are, we'd be happy to discuss your book. Before you contact us, however, please make sure you can answer "yes" to these threshold questions:

Is It Right for Us?

We specialize in books that have some connection to Disney or theme parks. Disney, of course, has become a broad topic, and encompasses not just theme parks and films but comic books, animation, and a big chunk of pop culture. Your book should fit into one (or more) of those broad categories.

Is It Going to Make Money?

There's never a guarantee that any book will make money, but certain types of books are less likely to do so than others. They include: hardcovers, books with color photos, and books that go on forever ("forever" as in 400+ pages). We won't automatically turn down these types of books, but you'll have to be a really good salesman to convince us.

Are You Great to Work With?

Writing books and publishing books should be fun. The last thing you want, and the last thing we want, is a contentious relationship. We work with authors who share our philosophy of no drama and zero attitude, and the desire for a respectful, realistic, mutually beneficial partnership.
