1000 Really, Really Hard Disney Trivia Stumpers

Who would have thought that I could manage five volumes of this, the fifth in The World’s Toughest Disney Quiz Book series?

Well, it’s obvious when you think about it. It’s well over a hundred years now since Walt Disneys birth on December 5, 1901 (a fact far too well known to be included in these pages). With over a century of obscure Disney trivia to choose from, why wouldn’t there be at least five thousand quiz questions that fall into the “World’s Toughest” category?

So here we are again with another selection of questions. As always, the chances are that most of this information will be new to you. It’s just presented in a fun way that you might just be able to say “I got one right!” every so often. Well done. I hope that the rest of them make you think, “Well, I never knew that.”

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.
