The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that QUIZney is a live trivia contest about Disney productions that fans ages six and older can play using the DisneyNOW app or website. Contestants must have a profile on the platform they use, and their screen name will be displayed during the show if they are among the game's 10 winners of $100 prizes. Winners are determined by a combination of correct answers and response time. The show's host gives movie synopses in between presenting the questions and sometimes encourages viewers to watch those they haven't seen, so advertising is a matter to consider.
What's the story?
QUIZNEY is a live, multiplatform trivia contest that challenges fans to answer five multiple-choice questions about Disney productions like Brave, Frozen, and Beauty and the Beast. Hosted by Trinitee Stokes, the show has players submit their answers on the DisneyNOW app or website, and leaders are determined by the accuracy and speed of their responses. The 10 players who finish the game atop the leaderboard win $100 prizes.
Is it any good?
These nightly trivia rounds are a fun way to test your movie knowledge as a family, but if winning a prize is your concern, then there's no time for discussing answers. You have to be fast! You'll need the app or the website to play, of course, as well as an account so the game can use your screen name for shout-outs from the host ("I see Jasmine is climbing the leaderboard!") and recognition as a game winner. Playing the game in real time means instant results and a whole lot of excitement. Viewers who aren't interested in competing can use the show as a trivia contest in the more traditional sense, since there's time to consider choices and answer before the correct one is revealed onscreen.
QUIZney's questions are basic and well suited to young players, relating to big events and character experiences that really stand out from movies. If your kids aren't already in the know on all the classic and modern Disney movies, though, you may find the show feels like an ad conglomerate for the titles that come up, as the host fills the wait time between questions with synopses and fun facts about them.
