I also forgot to mention that at Disney-MGM Studios we participated in Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - Play It!, basically a live version of the TV show in an exact replica of the show's set where audience members can play along and get a chance to win prizes. I never made it to the hotseat at the front (although I did come in fourth or fifth in that first question to determine who gets into the hotseat).

I had played it in 2002 at Disney's California Adventure on our end-of-high-school trip to the Disneyland Resort with friends when the attraction was still operating there, so I was pretty knowledgeable about the format of the game, and on our last viewing of this show last week, I ended up knowing the answers to most of the questions and guessed correctly on the ones I didn't know. They periodically show who has the top score in the audience playing along with the person in the hotseat, and when one person lost the game after missing a question, they showed the scores and I was the top scorer in the audience! If there was enough time and they were going to pick another person for the hotseat, I would have been selected! Alas. I think it really helped that I knew the answer to this obscure $125,000 question about who was Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year for 2003 (Robert Downey, Jr., who isn't exactly that big of a celebrity compared to the other choices given). But that was such a random question... I certainly wouldn't have known the answer if it weren't here at my school.
