Tuesday night I participated in my first Minnie’s Moonlit Madness, one of the many cool activities we get to participate in as cast members. The event had me dashing through Disneyland park in search of clues and puzzle pieces to win medals and bragging rights.

Here’s how it worked – 351 teams consisting of four cast members, family or friends tested their Disney knowledge by completing a trivia-based Q&A followed by a two-hour, clue-solving adventure. Each team was bound together by rope and given 10 assignments, one at a time. The challenge was to complete as many as possible before the clock struck midnight. Sound familiar?

At one point I found myself at Alice in Wonderland counting the number of teeth on Cheshire Cat. Some clues required covering less ground and more thinking, like unscrambling a list of long-gone Tomorrowland attractions.

I left feeling great because the event provided $15,500 to the Boys & Girls Club of Anaheim, not to mention my team completed all 10 adventures. I can’t wait to view our results on Friday!


  • I was actually an assistant to a member of the Clue Crew this year and it was fun to watch from the outside rather than being one of the teams, though in future years I will gladly rushing from one clue to the next. ^_^

  • Typo: Alice IN Wonderland, not AND. 🙂

  • Before midnight? Why couldn’t Disney have paid tribute to a forgotten bit of Disney history and called it….”MIDNIGHT Madness”? 🙂
    (The name would have fit, for a team scavenger hunt.)

  • My good friend is a cast member and I was able to participate in this year’s scavenger hunt. What a great group of people and a fun time. It was cool that there was kind of a Tron theme and many of the questions and answers were about the Tron universe. I like to see that so many cast members love where they work and are huge Disney fans. We even spotted some of the D23 team too.

  • 11 adventures 🙂
