Ever wonder if the Morse code message being sent in Epcot's Spaceship Earth is a real message? Recently, I found out the answer to that question and more while playing around with Lou Mongello's WDW Disney World Trivia iPhone app.
The Morse code message received in the telegraph office is a real message. It announces the driving of the golden spike at Promontory Park in 1869, the event that linked the transcontinental railroad.
Another neat bit of trivia I learned from the same app is that in Spaceship Earth, the steam press in the 20th century scene is an exact replica of one developed by William Bullock in 1863!
