Ahh — Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. Ragtime bands, the Dapper Dans, and much, much more. There’s a whole lot of history behind this street… but how much do you really know? We’ve heard feedback from some of you who have been asking for tougher trivia and more well-hidden secrets. We hope to provide a fun experience for fans of all levels–the kind that you’ll want to share with the same loved ones whom you share trips to the parks with.

Keeping the wide variety of our Disney Insider readers in mind, we stepped up the challenge level of this particular quiz. Just one trip to Disneyland won’t prepare you to get 10 out of 10; even an Annual Passholder might start to sweat at some of these.
