    Its a reference to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. I think...

    I concur. It's Disney's way of showing it's love to the Dodgers.

    However, if you recall correctly, the planet was destroyed just before the ultimate question was complete. Therefore, I always figured that was something that was in the process of being completed, almost there, and not actually the final, ultimate question.

    Rule number 42 is the oldest rule in the book. It was also mentioned in the original book.

    "Rule Forty-Two. All Persons More Than A Mile High To Leave The Court."

    Yep. And the reason it is number 42 is a homage to Hitchhiker's Guide.

    Well, for Buzz I always like to pretend it's an homage to the show. Buzz's Star Cruiser is number 42. And I'd just like to mention how much I hate that map only a few steps away from the number... Those are not the planets of the Galactic Alliance! Disney already had a bunch of planets they could've used for the map, and instead they decided to make a bunch of random planets with names that you have to think about really hard to pronounce. Goodness. Sorry, it's just that I would've liked to see the map reference Buzz Lightyear of Star Command... :P i like that show. (end rant.)

    I've never realized it was in other places though! I'll have to be on the lookout next time I'm in the park.

    Interesting thread. I don't recall it.
    one thing mentioned there was that the number 42 was on attractions built before 1978 (when The Book was published). the explanation is that attractions get refurbed and things are added.

    Hidden 42's, anyone??

    You know...if you take 42 and you split it in half you get 21...if you add 2 to that you get...AHHH!! 23!
