What is Disney NOW Quizney?
Disney NOW Quizney is a live trivia game that Disney hosts to test your knowledge.
You can access it through the DisneyNOW app in your mobile device or through the DisneyNOW website. It is also aired on the Disney Channel.
The trivia game is Disney’s innovative and interactive way of encouraging fans to take an active part in Disney and the Disney Channel.
Three Seasons of Disney NOW Quizney
Disney NOW Quizney was launched in 2018 running for two weeks from Monday to Friday at 7 PM EDT or 4 PM PDT. The trivia show was initially seven minutes long.
Players accessed the game through the DisneyNOW app while being televised via Disney Channel.
Happy to say, its first run was a big hit!
Following this success, the show was picked up for a second and third season.
Different questions were introduced every day with a certain time limit for players to key in their answers.
Disney also made replays of past games available through the DisneyNOW app for those who want to play without time constraints and those who missed the live show.
The third season ran for twelve weeks from April to July in 2019.
Disney NOW Quizney Hosts
Do you know Disney star Trinitee Stokes? Trinitee, who starred as Judy Cooper in Disney Channel television series K.C. Undercover, was the show’s first host. This bubbly young lady added fun to the game with her quirky remarks.
Every season, new hosts are introduced. A lot of Disney sweethearts led the show including Joshua Rush from Andi Mack and Isaac Ryan Brown from Raven’s Home.
If you’re a fan of Disney Channel Original Movie Zombies, Meg Donnelly who plays Addison also served as host. Even Anna Cathcart AKA Dizzy Tremaine from the third Descendants movie also joined in on the fun.
Not only do Disney lovers enjoy playing the game, but we also get to watch Disney stars from some of our favorite Disney Channel shows.
How Disney NOW Quizney Works
Since you already have an idea of what it is, you may now be wondering – how does Disney NOW Quizney work?
Read on below to find out all about its structure and point scoring style.
Disney NOW Quizney: In Game Mechanics
It’s easy to play the game once you’re already part of DisneyNOW. Every weekday at the assigned time, the fun and challenging ten-minute live game starts.
The live trivia game begins with the host asking a question. There is a daily theme with Disney-centric topics that can be about anything – like, say, Simba and Nala’s baby or Buzz Lightyear’s superhero group.
Participants are given 25 seconds in order to answer each question through the DisneyNOW app. Disney provides possible answers to choose from. An audio chime will signify when you can key in your answer.
You have to be careful, though. Once you tap an answer, there’s no going back!
You really have to know your Disney Channel facts in order to win. There are different formats for different questions. This means you’ll really have to stay alert!
Disney NOW Quizney Scoring
Aside from having your Disney Channel knowledge, you have to think fast in this game, too!
Scores are decided based on two things: correctness and speed.
The faster you select the correct answer, the more points you’re going to have. Each successive round also has questions that get progressively harder.
There are seven questions that talk about the latest Disney Channel movies and shows, along with Pixar and Disney movies.
The last question called the Big Q is the one to look out for. This is really important because answering correctly gives triple the points. Triple points will help you boost your score!
If you tune in to the live show on Disney Channel, you might see your name on the leaderboard as you answer.
Disney star hosts call out profiles of people who are leading in terms of the most number of points. Imagine hearing your favorite Disney star tell you you’re doing a great job!
