#Disneyland60....Today In Disneyland History....September 13, 2010

Minnie’s Moonlit Madness Competition
September 13, 2010

On September 13, 2010, was a night of clues and trivia as 350 teams of cast members, family and friends scavenger-hunted their way through Disneyland Park looking to be the “big cheese” during the 2010 Minnie’s Moonlit Madness. During the event, Cast Members got to show how much “Disney” they knew in the form of a special trivia-based Q&A session followed by a two-hour scavenger hunt. This epic adventure, is an annual event hosted at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. Employees from around the company  assembled a group of four co-workers, family or friends for a night filled with clues, mysteries, math, puzzles and, of course, madness! And similar to any traditional challenge, there’s also a time limit and a special catch: Each team must attempt to complete 10 assignments (one at a time) by midnight… while tied together by rope!
From answering mind boggling multiple-choice questions to solving riddles throughout the scavenger hunt, or even learning a brand new dance routine to get the next assignment, Minnie’s Moonlit Madness has become a must-attend employee event for the past 28 years. It is the one time each year that the cast can get together for not only a fun night of charity but show off their knowledge of all things Disney – even the teeny, tiny details such as how many pairs of snowshoes are there in Frontierland are a part of the clues. The 2010 winning team was led by Stephanie Mandelsberg who worked in Fantasyland attractions. The top three teams received medals and bragging rights!

Each year a local nonprofit organization is chosen to receive the proceeds from the event. During the 2010 event, Mercy House received $5,500 to help them in their quest to provide supportive services to homeless families in Orange County and the city of Ontario. Minnie’s Moonlit Madness is one on one of the most anticipated employee events at The Walt Disney Company.  Although the end-goal is to win the competition and medal, employees also give back to a nonprofit organization with their Minnie’s Moonlit Madness entry fee. Next time you visit Disneyland, see if you can figure out just how many pair of horseshoes there are in Frontierland.  And that’s what happened today in Disneyland history.
