A Fool in the Virtual Magic Kingdom

The master plan is brilliant: Get folks to the parks. Then make sure
they don’t forget about the parks when they return home. Along the way,
a young generation will start thinking that Disney is cool again, and
that’s crucial, since rival film studios are wresting the animation
crown from Disney.

At The Moteley Fool Rick Munarriz writes about the strategic aspect of Disney’s VMK MMORG. I wish I had the time to play a little bit.

    i know, why does vmk have to be so dang mean? And i also agree with #$#$# it’s almost like they don’t care about us kids. We just want to ahve fun for pete sake. Imean how does going into a room and saying hi then getting out cause of a nasty owner get you banned????!?!?!? I also hate the things they don’t allow to type on there. I mean i agree with the cuss words and personal info but they also went way too far now canceled some of the chat language. Well that’s all i have to say right now but i will think of more. By the way my name on Vmk WAAAS bravesamanthacool so if u were my friend can u tell me?

  27. samantha says:

    I got a quest kiosk yesterday

  31. Nicole says:

  32. brooke says:

    oh thats cool that you know me samantha! i got banned for a week for being too adult like! how stupid but they might have their ways of stretching it out

  33. hoboman says:

    hey AAA is your name singingcat in vmk

  34. hoboman says:

    i got banned untill 2016 and it sucks no matter how many times everyone says it i hope that i only get banned for a short while

  35. lalalala says:

    wow you got banned to 2016

  36. samantha says:

    i was banned until 2016 but they said they lifted my ban!!!! i am soo excited. i can’t contain myself sorry for the people who are still banned. try writing a lot of messages to them they might unban u. i think the touching letter my friend wrote to them really touched them this time. (and it was accurate)

  37. Chae says:

    Okay this is not fair, I used to like the staff, I mean I’m reading the things that people posted when they got banned and some bans that staff give us are so stupid! My sister was banned until 2015 (She’ll be 20 and won’t even care about VMK anymore) I guess staff are just their to get paid and if someone starts ‘acting up’ staff will just ban them forever and not even look into the problem.
    Oh and another thing, I was in the slide competition and I did all the work by myself, made the team, organized the group and registered the team on the first day. I misspelled one little letter in one of the members name and what do I get from staff? “I’m Sorry but your Pool Partol was not accepted into the event. Reason was that your team name and Shallow end were not as the rules stated.” Just for one little letter that I misspelled, and we are now out of the competition. I’m aching for my team (My team not just me)

  38. samantha says:

    the staff are that strict? i kind of think they are kind because they gave me another chance on vmk. i was banned until 2016 but when i read my email it said they gave me another chance. I had to wait three months for that tho. i missed the slide-a-thon, and a lot of days that they were selling pins. Hey does anyone know when the blizzard beach quest ends?

  39. samantha says:

    when does the blizzard beach quest end? bc i want to get that room so bad! i’m on number 28 sof ar. i have to play castle fireworks and get 150,000

  40. samantha says:

    oh just wondering does anyone here know a person on vmk by the SC of bravesamanthacool? that’s me. if you do let me know

  41. RachelMoo says:

    I am so mad at vmk i got ban because i was doing the boy friend girl friend thing and we were trying to make out!It sucks that I am ban but it is only for a month so I think I will live.

  42. brianna says:

  43. #$#$# says:

  44. Me!! says:

    I love vmk but the thing i dont love is that they banned my sister and we have NO CLUE wat she did they should tell u wat u did before they ban U!!!! and now i cant get on my account even but we just use the computer to play vmk lol haha

  45. Nicholas says:

    I had so many rare things that i had worked for so long on….. i had just finished all of my rooms…… i was haing a wonderful relationship with my girl IceAngelPixie.

    but ofcourse, it was too good too be true and me and my friend, CutiePikay, and IceAgelPixie were saying things with numbers in them but using like instead of 3 we said tree. and just like that…. after i just stopped getting banned for one month and finished everything (i even had a bird hat!) i just had to get banned for 10 FRIGGIN YEARS!!!

    my god!! its not like i’m gonna play VMK in 2015 when i’m 22. what are they?…. stupid? and mean, i think so.
