Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia


Welcome back for more fantastic Disney Trivia!  Thanks again to Jodi from +Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Heidi from +Heidi's Head, and +Mike Ellis for co-hosting!

Did you know:

Walt tried to enlist in the U.S. Army to head to Europe for WWI, but he wasn't old enough.  In fact, he was 1 year shy of age to enlist in the Red Cross.  So, he had his mother sign an affidavit of his age and than changed his date so he could go to Europe!
It originally said 1901

While in Europe, he drove an ambulance


And even had the special detail of driving General Pershing's The 10 year old son!

  1. Wow. What a totally cool piece of trivia! It's always so astonishing to hear details about his life before he was "Walt Disney" and was just Walt Disney.

  2. I've been reading a Walt Disney biography and had read some of these details in there, but not all of them. Very interesting that he got to drive General Pershing's son around!
