    Scavenger hunt help! Can't find purple!

    Hi all! Long-time lurker on these boards but now I finally have a reason to post something myself!

    This June my daughter is having a bat-mitzvah in Disneyland. One of the activities we have planned for the younger kids is a scavenger hunt inside of the Magic Kingdom portion of Disneyland. The kids will tromp all over the park stopping at different checkpoints and receiving small prizes culminating with fastpass tickets to the World of Color that evening!

    The theme of the hunt is that the Disney villains have stolen the colors of the rainbow in an attempt to ruin the World of Color spectacle that evening. They will have to follow a clue leading them to a locations where and adult will be waiting with a crayon and an coloring sheet. After coloring in the item, they will get another clue and be on their way.

    For instance, Captain Hook has stolen Jack Sparrow's gold and turned it white! The kids will follow a yet-to-be-written cheesy poem/clue to the outside of Pirates of the Caribbean where they will get a yellow crayon to color in a picture of the stolen gold.

    My problem is that I can't think of any decent item that a Disney character uses that is purple. I need the help of all of the Disneyphiles out there to come up with plausible suggestions of useable items. Also scenarios with who stole the item and where in the park it might be found would be helpful.

    Incidentally, the other items and colors I am using so far are:

    Yellow - Pirate gold
    Red - Beast's Rose
    Blue - Mickey's Sorcerer's Hat
    Green - Yoda's Lightsaber
    Orange - A pumpkin to help Huey Dewey and Louie (outside the Haunted Mansion)

    If you have any suggestions for the other colors as well that would be great, but mostly I'm stuck on purple. Remember, the hunt is confined to the Magic Kingdom, so California Adventure suggestions won't be useful.

    Btw, my apologies to indigo (the red(indigo?)-headed stepchild of the color spectrum. I guess regular crayon boxes don't contain indigo and finding an indigo Disney item would be way harder than even the purple one.

    Maybe you can have Roo from Winnie the Pooh have a purple kite that he wants to fly, but a mischievous Heffalump took it away. This would allow the participants to go to Critter Country.
    The music celebration puts some motion into my ocean!

    This sounds like a great idea for them and I think they would enjoy it.

    Ursula is purple but that is in DCA so thats no good for you.

    Daisy wears purple. Maybe something for that.

    The cheshire cat is purple and you can see him in the mirror in the mad hatter hat shop. Actually you could say the statue of him has had the colour stolen as its just grey.

    Thats all I can think off the top of my head.

    The Evil Queen from Snow White & Maleficent have purple in their robes, so there's that

    Rapunzel's dress is purple. It could be at the Tangled Tower in Fantasy Faire.

    Negative Nellie here... Not sure crayons are a good choice. What if they melt? And who wants to stop to color @ Disneyland? Maybe them but not me.

    you're such a cool mom to do this for them!!

    when I think of purple, I think of royalty. Why not do something at the Princess Fantasy Faire, or if you are anti-princess, you could make the King Arthur sword Excalibur in front of the carousel the location.

    What a fun idea. You are an awesome parent.

    Just to make sure though, you do know that World of Color is on the DCA side, right?

    You might have a problem with the color orange.

    I can't find any photos of folks posing in the stationary dumbo, but anyhow, lots of purple on that ride and good place for a adult to wait for searching children.

    This. There are no pumpkins outside of HM in June - it is a fall decoration, not year-round.

    Tigger would work.

    or if you want to be really obscure, there are carrots inside Mickey's house on the way to the studio barn.


    I also agree, is is a great idea!

    I'd say for purple, have someone standing under the window of Snow White's Scary Adventures where the Evil Queen looks out from time to time. Her robes are purple and she'll be spying on the children from afar who dare to ruin the villian's evil plan.
    Peter Pan: "You know, your hair is on fire."
    Me: "Yes. It happened after a recent trip to Neverland."
    Peter Pan: "Well, you can dunk your head in the pond behind us, if you want."

    Neverland since 1996.
