    DL Birthday Scavanger Hunt (NEED YOUR HELP)

    Hey Folks
    This weekend my sister and her boyfriend are celebrating their respective birthdays and their anniversary and I have convienced him to bring her to the park on Sunday since that was one of their first dates. I told him I was planning a scavanger hunt that would end with a receipt to one of the lockers on Main Street where her present would be...

    WHAT he doesn't know is their will be a mutual gift for him their too and an anniversary gift as well!

    Where this breaks down is I need to design a scavanger hunt and I need to be able to plant clues where security and or the cleaning crew WON'T remove the clues...further more I need to find locations and fun lymirics...I know some of you have been part of those Team Disney hunts- any suggestions?

    I was thinking of including CM's but they rotate posistions too often to be effictive. Any thoughts?

    why don't you see if you can get micechatters to volunteer to "appear" in certain places at certain times where the hunt will lead you sister & her boyfriend. that way, you know you can trust the people, know that it's not going to get swept away, or be found by some lucky random person. it's not like they know us!

    I think the cleaning crew is too efficient for that kind of thing. Maybe you should just form a puzzle which you would have them find stuff in the park (like # of spires on the castle, bricks on mainstreet...etc) which would eventually help them figure out the locker number and combination

    Yeah, something more along MA's lines would be better... puzzles and such that lead from place to place.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: DL Birthday Scavanger Hunt (NEED YOUR HELP)

    UPDATE:

    The Scanvanger hunt was a success. Thank you to all the Mice Chatters who provided great advice. It worked like this:

    1.) Met my sister and boyfriend at the gate with the first clue, in the envelope I had already gone to City Hall and gotten birthday stickers. Inside the envelope was a claim receipt for the baggage check at the west end newsstand.
    *Did you know you can leave messages at City Hall for friends and family?

    2.) At the west end shop they picked up two embrodered golden ears with their names on it and the next clue that sent them to Frontierland for "leather good"...the gals at the Bonanzi personalized leather shoppee were willing play along and hold two bracletts for my sister and her boyfriend.

    3.) From their they went on to meet me at POTC to ride it one last time before they closed it for the refurb, after exiting I gave them the next clue, which led them to the castle.

    4.) At the heraldry shoppee I had researched my sister's boyfriend's last name (keep this in your head this is important to the epilogue) This gift would contain the final clue which led them back to Main St.

    5.) On Main St, I hid a picture frame for them in a locker for their new family crest and a very nice letter.

    Needless to say they loved it. I will say this some of the shops wanted to play ball, others wanted nothing to do with me, I wanted to do about 7 stops including one in Tommorrowland...Now that I know its possible, I may very well try this again someday for someone special.

    EPILOGUE:
    Well my main gift was that *family crest from the heraldry shoppe because I had feeling it would become her last name someday soon...

    Well Monday night my sister and her boyfriend went to the beach where they first kissed and he proposed!

    Well thought out! And what an awesome story for your sister and her boyfriend! I've always been one to make up my own scavenger hunts and games for my own birthday parties. I might have to borrow some of your idea for my next scavenger hunt at DL. THANKS!

    Re: DL Birthday Scavanger Hunt (NEED YOUR HELP)

    Been thinking after this I want to design a different type of Disneyland scavanger hunt, perhaps one for teams of MiceChatters---the first ever MiceChat Scavanger hunt- the rub would be that you are given a list of "items" your team must procure from around the parks and Downtown Disney, with clues and a lifeline. EG- You must get the stetched penny that features such and such character -or- They only sell this item in one place in the all the parks, find this collectable item made of candy...I dunno but you get the idea!

    I am not the Disney expert by any stretch of the imagination but would love to work on it with someone, IF moderators decide this would be a fun event.
