    Re: Official Gumball Rally and MiceQuest Results

    Wow! Great job guys. I'm sorry I couldn't make it- I would have loved to try my hand at the Gumball rally, and that desert party looked awesome! Well, maybe next time...

    Keep up the great work MiceChat! And great job to everyone who participated!

    Just out of curiosity, did any of the faster teams skip anything? I'm not interested in pointing fingers. I just want to get an idea of what the fastest possible times are like.

    Actually our team did the same as you. We stayed through all of Tiki, all of HISTA, but for Innoventions we walked straight to the center, skipping the presentation. I think that's okay, since I skip the presentation most of the time and head straight for a game.

    Other than that, we had the opportunity to skip a few steps, but rest assured we didn't! All of our points are legit! We even had a bunch of ideas of technically not going against the rules, but we didn't want to ruin the spirit of the event (experiencing every attraction fully by day's end), so we didn't do anything tricky.

    All I can say is use fastpasses galore! At one point, I had 8 fast passes in my pocket. We kept close attention to the fine print saying when we can grab another fp, and ultimately that's what we planned our schedule around.

    We could have skipped a few steps too, but we didn't. Yes, it was all about the spirit of the event!

    Yes, of course. FastPasses weren't our problem. My scheduling was the problem. I guess I'll write up a little trip report.

    Plus, you never know when a spotter is watching! There were groups of us all over the park.

This was the very basic rule of the game. Thankfully only a few of you seemed confused upon the point. We also handed out a telephone slip for people to call if they had any questions about the rules. Consider yourself warned for next year
    see, i could have helped with the rules... heck.. I know how to change loopholes to no one but myselfs advantage...

    Tomorrowland isn't that big. Besides, I think most teams were doing the right thing and staying in the spirit of the competition.

    Winning by cheating sounds like a hollow victory to me.

    I totally agree. In fact, I don't think anyone intentionally did anything that they thought would be an unfair advantage. We had a LOT of people call the info line to ask questions because they didn't accidentally want to break a rule. The spotters were everywhere. We'll have even more next time.

    We learned a lot from this event. As smoothly as it ran, it will only get better as we do more of these.

    I think we finished with more time to spare than we needed and spent some time chatting with team 37.


    The Animatronic Americans ate Chimichangas while in line for the Mad Tea Party. One word:

    Mistake.

    Eating the Chimichangas at any time is usually a mistake I can only wonder how you were able to finish with a bomb like that ticking away in your stomachs

Like when I won the Disneyland gay day scavenger hunt and then went back the next day and won the DCA Scavenger Hunt. Really just hate bragging... Hate it.

    MAYBE we'll see you all again next time! Thanks for a great game!
    Interesting....

    Re: Official Gumball Rally and MiceQuest Results

    Perhaps this is a little late to chime in, but I just wanted to add that the Quest was an immensely rewarding and challenging experience. I'm glad there were many questions that catered to various skill levels and intellects. If it were completely dumbed down to the level of asking to simply count rides or pick up a brochure, I doubt it would have felt as much like a competition.

    My hat is off to the author(s) of the Mini Micequest. I'm looking forward to a hearty challenge during the next one...
