This week, Lisa shares a trivia quiz from her recent Galveston DCL cruise. All we have are the answers. Lisa also shamelssly begs for voicemails, tweets or voice files telling us what we have taught you over these last few years! **This show is not for the dog noise averse** Also, I think I (Lisa) curse somewhere on this one and for that reason, I'm labeling it explicit.

There is a fabulous key chain and DCL Galveston pin awaiting one lucky listener who will go to our facebook page and enter a comment telling us their area of Disney Trivia Concentration. Leave a message between today and when the next show posts (4/23/13) and a winner will be randomly selected from the comments!

Tanks to Jeff W., Junior Staff Member, for his fabulous intro (not afro like I first typed). Although if he had an afro, we are sure it would indeed be fabulous.

As Lisa is wishing her hubby a Happy 44th today, we are all holding the people of Boston and our loved ones in the area close in our hearts.
