    oh my gosh, what a huge waste of money... No offense to anyone, but that game sucks.

    And in due time, it will become ad-supported like ToonTown will.

    Members pay $6.95 per month so don't think ads will be that important. They have 700,00 paying members at this time.

    My son loves this game, but he only plays the free version. I like it because it has a safe chat mode, where the kids select phrases from a drop-down menu and are limited as to what they can say to each other.

    $350 million though? Wow.
    A signature should go here.

    They should have stuck to toontown, vmk, and the new pirates online. 350 million is way too much money for something that half of the
    US more than likely have no idea as to what it is.

    it is one of the fastest growing and most popular games as of the moment, so Disneys getting in before it's too late.

    mind me coming out of lurking-mode here..

    I'm Happy That The Virtual Community Got Into The Hands Of Disney..

    Keeping In Mind, Numerous Other Companies And Communities Were Trying To Get A Peice Of The 'Club' For Quite Some Time, Sony Being One Of Them..

    And Disney Seems Like Just The Right Place For Them..


    It May Seem Much, But 'guess Disney Really Wanted To Keep Them In Good Hand..


    How I See This Is Like Google Aquiring YouTube:
    Crazy Amounts Of Money For A Simple Service, But The Big Company Let's The Service Still Do What It Does, But Is Still Under The Parent Family..

    From The Looks Of It, The Guys At 'CP' Will Keep To Their 'No-Ads' Montra, And I'm Happy For That..
    Nymo- It's 'Nemo' Replaced With A 'Y'.. And It Has No Meaning..
    oh, now, Why Is THAT Photo Showing?
