3/5 This week, new prizes are added to the EPCOT Quest, HOST_Hula makes over a lucky VMK'ers guest room and Yavn plans a visit to the Far East! Plus, the scoop on the Green Space Suit, Yeti and more!
Welcome to March! VMK is going 'Green' this month what does that mean? Well, all through the month of March we'll be talking about the environment and how you can make a difference and help save the planet. We'll also show you how The Walt Disney Company is making the Disney Parks and Resorts more Earth friendly, plus we'll have cool tips on how you can 'Think Green' too!
Lost in Green Space!
Did you all pick up your Green Space Vest this weekend? It was on sale in the Emporium over the weekend but you'll be able to complete the outfit with Green Space Pants, Shoes and a Helmet they'll all be on sale too in the next few weeks.
The Green Space Vest will make your friends 'green' with envy. :-)
This Friday, look for the Green Space Pants! Be sure to check the Community Calendar for exact details, just remember this gear is on sale for a limited time! Just swing by the Emporium Specials and pick them up Friday through Sunday.
You Asked For It! You Got It!
Judging by the sheer number of Quests completed and your feedback for the EPCOT Quest and EPCOT Guest Room, the Quest has been a huge success. As a special thanks to all our players we're going to make completing the remaining 2 EPCOT Quests even sweeter!
Starting today we're adding NEW PRIZES for the third EPCOT Quest (that Quest launched today) and the fourth EPCOT Quest (it will kick off on March 12th). For EPCOT Quest 3, how about a Single Use Treasure Detector Magic Pin in addition to that Guest Room?
Single Use Treasure Detector Magic Pin, one of two new prizes you get when you complete the EPCOT Quest.
And for EPCOT Quest 4 a Single Use Dancing Inferno Magic Pin! Again, you'll still get the Epcot Guest room for completing the Quest (and these additional prizes!). Just remember that you have until March 31st to complete all the EPCOT Quests and these extra prizes are only for the third and fourth EPCOT Quests.
Last week we talked a bit about Magic, this week I'd like to chat about the Pirates Treasure Room and the Treasure Keys. As you know, there are 3 treasure chests in the Treasure Room Gold, Silver and Bronze. Of course to open each chest you need a Gold, Silver or Bronze key and to get them you will need to play the Pirates of the Caribbean game. You can play either Capture The Flag, or the Ship Battle game, every time you win 3 games, you'll win a key.
The Bronze Treasure Key.
The key you win depends on the difficulty level you play (level 1 for Bronze, Level 2 for Silver and Level 3 for Gold). Now here's where it gets interesting! Once you've won a key, head on over to the correct chest in the Treasure Room and try it out. When you open the chest one of 2 things will happen: the chest will be empty, or the chest will have something cool inside!
Let me repeat that you may find treasure (like a Pirate Throne, a Cannon Wall, or even a Single Use Coral Magic Pin), or you may find the chest has already been ransacked and is empty. For those of you who regularly play Pirates and have all the prizes, keep playing as you may discover some different prizes very soon!
Room Makeover Update
Last week HOST_Hula took over the Room Makeover reigns and added a dash of green in honor of 'Think Green' month. Over to you Hula!
Aloha all! Wow, tonight was totally fun! I got to surf around the Virtual Magic Kingdom checking for Guest Rooms to makeover. I met some really nice players while on my search for the perfect room to makeover 'tropical style.'
I came ashore on a lovely little Mad Hatter room owned by Eragon_rocks. Eragon_rocks was sitting by herself, looking for some friends to chill with. It looked like Eragon_rocks could use some help sprucin' up her room - HOST_Hula to the rescue!
Eragon_rocks told me her favorite colors are green and black, and that she likes fountains and fun tropical stuff! Sounds a lot like my style! So I put in some pretty pirate thrones (nice and comfy for friends to chill in) to add a touch of style. I added some fountains to provide a tranquil area for visitors to hang out around.
Eragon_rocks also wanted some music to replace her organ, so I put in two fancy green and black pirate player pianos!
The Mad Hatter room before
and after the sand was washed away.
When I was all done, the room was certified chilly! If you see this room on the list, be sure to surf on in and chill for a while! Eragon_rocks will welcome you with her totally warm Aloha spirit. And to you Eragon_rocks, Mahalo for letting me makeover your room!
Party in Club 33?
Have you won tickets to a Club 33 Party? HOST_Phinny hosted our first Club 33 Party last weekend, don't worry though, more are on the way. Keep on eye on the Community Calendar for details on our next event and how you can win tickets! Of course there's always my way Win the title of Best Guest Room and you can have your own party with your very own host!
Yavn Goes East!
Whew, the last few weeks have been a crazy time here at VMK HQ. We've been putting the finishing touches on some new stuff that I'll be talking about next week (improvements for Host Rooms, and VMK Pass anyone?). But I'm most excited about a trip we'll be taking back East in a few weeks. No, not to Walt Disney World, I'm talking the Far East, to Hong Kong Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland.
Yavn's going to Hong Kong Disneyland.
Why? Well, VMK is not about any single Magic Kingdom, it's a mix of all of them and we try to make sure we spend as much time as we can in the other Parks I'm planning on taking lots of pictures and I'll come back with a full report! Now do they have Churros in Hong Kong??? Ok, I'll take a Giza Dog instead!
Yeti Tells All!
Alright then, that about wraps it up for this week, one last thing before I go - starting this week our good friend Yeti will be starting his new job as VMK Game Counselor! That's right, 'The King of Q&A' will now be specializing in answering game related questions.
The Yeti, who we fondly call Mr. Know-It-All around the office, will now be serving up VMK game play tips.
Yeti will be talking about frequently asked questions and offer tips on how you can get the most out of VMK. Got a game question or topic for the Yeti? Drop him a line at through the Contact Us tool. Until next week...
See you In VMK!
