Another Disney Puzzle to Solve!

Ready to test your brain power with another Disney themed word puzzle? This one I wrote just for our readers!

Did you enjoy the Haunted Mansion puzzle I shared from Shinteki’s Field Trip Disneyland event? Well, I have a new one to share with you all today!

A Puzzling Family

I have been around puzzles since I met my husband almost 14 years ago. I mentioned before that he solves puzzles at a professional level and that I do not!

He once won a Google hunt and the prize was an interview with Google for a job! He did not take the job, but he did love the t shirt and the bragging rights!

Each year during our family vacations with my husband’s side, we do a puzzle hunt as a family. I have chosen to step back from participating as I find them a little stressful and prefer to relax on our trips.

However, I usually help the hosts in the planning process: testing puzzles, logistics, etc.

Our family puzzle hunt is called the Codswallop Chase, where we compete for the coveted (if severely bent) Codswallop Cup!

The person or team who wins the Chase becomes the custodian of the Codswallop Cup, and they get to put on the following year’s Codswallop Chase for the rest of the family.

Most of the time we are visiting Walt Disney World on our family trip, so we have had the Codswallop Chase in all 4 parks and several resorts. One group put on a pirate themed hunt at Caribbean Beach Resort and another did a Monster/Halloween type hunt at Port Orleans French Quarter.

Puzzling Basics

Most of the puzzles we do in these events are some type of word or logic puzzle. The ones I plan to share here are predominately word puzzles.

With word puzzles, pay close attention to word choice. The word choice is deliberate, so let awkward wording draw your eye.

Is there a better way to say that? If so, then there is most likely a reason that it was phrased differently.

With all puzzles, pay attention to the title of the puzzle. Usually, but not always, it will hold some clue to the answer or to how to get the answer once the rest of the puzzle is solved.

Many of the puzzles we solve do not come with any instructions. I consider those to be the more advanced type, but know that part of puzzling is figuring out how to extract an answer from what you’re given.

As you can see, sometimes even the instructions are confusing! My face says “wait, what are we doing?”

I plan to provide basic instructions before the puzzles I post, and then more specific instructions in a “hint” section for more novice solvers.

Try to challenge yourself and see if you can get it with fewer hints, but don’t let yourself get too frustrated! It’s supposed to be fun!

Today’s Puzzle: “The Third Wheel”

Instructions: You will find a Disney Character’s name hidden in each of the following phrases. Once you have all of your answers, you should be able to find the third wheel!

Example: We allow all eight kids to eat cookies = Wall E. Got it? Now, you try:

  1. Have you ever seen a Maine moose?
  2. The decibel level on Big Thunder Mountain is too high!
  3. There are three colors of Labrador- yellow, black and brown.
  4. You know I mean Germany!
  5. Don’t forget to stop for gas tonight.
  6. Have you seen his car?
  7. He has elf ears!
  8. In Alaska we saw glacial ice.
  9. Have you seen the banana lady?
  10. It gets me every time!
  11. I saw a lamb east of here!
  12. Owen dyed his hair green!
  13. You can jump and land in a heap of leaves!

Hint Section

Maybe I’m just always making a “puzzled” face when I puzzle? -At Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Do you have all 13 characters? Are there any pairs of characters?

If you have only found one character from a movie, maybe look for names of other characters from that movie in the remaining clues. There are no characters in the puzzle who are the only ones from their film.

You don’t necessarily need to solve all 13 clues to get the answer to this puzzle. As stated above, most the characters are in pairs. One set of characters has three instead of two. That’s how you find your third wheel.

Answers to Clues

Some of these are so much tougher than others! Personally, I think lucky number 13 is the toughest, so I’m going to go in backwards order to give the answers to the clues. Do not read on if you do not want the answers! Answers begin after the picture!

7. He has elf ears!

6. Have you seen his car?

5. Don’t forget to stop for gas tonight.

4. You know I mean Germany!

3. There are three colors of Labrador- yellow, black and brown.

2. The decibel level on Big Thunder Mountain is too high!

1. Have you ever seen a Maine moose?

Now that you’ve seen the answers to each of the clues, who is our third wheel?

Oops, I first said Alice because I had a different answer on 13. So I think Gaston is the 3rd wheel.
