Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Virtual Magic Kingdom
|From Fantasyland to Adventureland, Frontierland, and even New Orleans Square, Disney's "Virtual Magic Kingdom" has given us items that represent many different areas of their parks. Below are some examples of this from the Beta period, with one exception. Which item is the exception?||"Virtual Magic Kingdom" - Beta or Not?
Haunted Mansion Rocking Chair Purple. Despite being given out in one of the largest quantities of any Beta item, the pink glass slipper seat is still a Beta item on Disney's "Virtual Magic Kingdom". The purple rocker was originally a quest item that became a buyable item after the quest had left the Disney theme parks.
|Welcome to Tomorrowland! Unfortunately, I am embarrassed to admit that I forgot that the Inner-Space Shop, which I wanted to take you to next, is not accessible by just anybody. I need to give you a special "Virtual Magic Kingdom" magic pin so you can get in. Which pin do you need to reach the shop?||A Tour of the "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
Inner-Space Suit Magic (any color). Yes, the Inner-Space Shop can only be reached by exiting from the bottom of the Space Mountain Quest Deck in Tomorrowland, entering into the Inner-Space Shrinking Machine, putting on your space suit by wearing the magic pin and then clicking on it or saying the word "Space!". From there, you travel to the other side of the room to enter the actual machine which takes you to the shop.
As you would expect from something in Tomorrowland, the inside of the shop looks futuristic, with a robotic cashier, a teleporter, a giant eye looking down on you, and some rocketship couches scattered around. In this shop, you can find various Tomorrowland-themed items, which can include rocketship couches, asteroid chairs, and a futuristic drinking fountain.
Shrunken Ned's. I never said we were leaving! I wanted to give you more time to shop around here! The inside of Shrunken Ned's shop looks like a hut with tribal items scattered all around. Shrunken Ned himself, a shrunken head with white hair, a monocle, and a British accent, is hanging from the ceiling and will talk to you as you shop. In addition to his selection of tiki items, he has other items for sale, such as tribal tables.
|Our tour of Disney's "Virtual Magic Kingdom" has led us to the Adventureland Bazaar. From here, which shop can you enter just by walking into it (rather than choosing it from the map screen)?||A Tour of the "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
Shrunken Ned's. In addition to Shrunken Ned's, the Pirates of the Caribbean game lobby, the Jungle Cruise game lobby, and the Pirate Treehouse (home to Captain Blackheart) are also accessible from the Bazaar. From there, you also have the option of exiting Adventureland and going into the Castle Forecourt, which is on Main Street.
|Moving to New Orleans Square now for the Haunted Mansion mini-game. Here, there are two teams that compete to catch the most ghosts. According to the game's rules, the colors of the teams are green and what?||A Tour of the "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
Purple. The object of the Haunted Mansion mini-game is to capture as many ghosts of your color in a vaccuum per two and a half minute round as you can. The game is in a best two out of three format, so even if you lose the first round, you can still win the game.
A trick to the game is that if your opponent touches one of your team's color ghosts, they will become a ghost, themselves, for ten seconds. If you can capture them within those ten seconds, they will add two ghosts to your total.
Looking at the teams, it appears that their colors are green and pink. However, if you take the time to read through the game's rules, you will see that it states that the team colors are green and purple.
|As we continue our tour through Adventureland, we next come to what many players of Disney's "Virtual Magic Kingdom" consider to be their favorite game, the Pirates of the Caribbean game. In this mini-game, after a number of wins, you are awarded a key which will open up a treasure chest and possibly award a prize. How many wins and on which difficulty level does it take to win a GOLD key?||A Tour of the "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
Three wins on level 3. You have a lot of options when you play the Pirates of the Caribbean mini-game. First, you have the option of choosing to play either Ship Battle (which you play until one team completely destroys all of the other teams ships or until time runs out) or Capture the Flag.
Next, you have the option to choose your ship. Your choices are the Black Pearl, which is exceptionally fast but has exceptionally low defense, the Wicked Winch, which has high attack but also low defense, or the Flying Dutchman, which is a well-rounded ship.
Finally, you have the option of choosing to play a level one game (the default level), a level two game (accessible after ten wins on level one), which features more challenging opponents, or a level three game (accessible after ten wins on level three and then visiting Captain Blackheart in the Pirate Treehouse), which has the most challenging opponent of all.
After three wins on either Ship Battle or Capture the Flag on level one, you win a bronze key. Three wins on either mode of play on level two awards a silver key. Three wins on either mode on the difficult level three awards you with a gold key.
|After playing several games of Pirates of the Caribbean, you get a message on your screen that says the "Virtual Magic Kingdom" will be closing in ten minutes. Shocked that a video game would close, you look to see what the game's hours are. For how many hours each day is the game open, under normal circumstances?||A Beginner's Guide to "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
15. The "Virtual Magic Kingdom" closes in an attempt to mimic the real Disney parks. Specifically, it tries to mimic the hours of Disneyland in Disneyland's time zone, though, of course, in other time zones the hours won't match up exactly. The exception to this rule is usually on New Year's Eve, when the game stays open until midnight, United States Pacific time, to allow people in all time zones of the United States to celebrate New Year's on the game. Don't worry if the game closes. It will be open again in nine more hours!
|As you click on other people standing around, you find that you can see what pins they are wearing. You notice that some of the pins are magic pins, which have a different appearance from other pins because they have between one and five yellow shapes at the bottom of them. What are these shapes?||A Beginner's Guide to "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
Stars. The more stars a magic pin has, the more powerful it is. Every time you use a magic spell, you have to wait a specified period of time before you can use it again. Gaining more stars can do one of two things, depending on which magic spell it is. It can either decrease the wait time or it can make the spell last longer. Stars can be increased by owning more than one of a particular magic and then choosing the "Combine" option in the "Pins" page of your inventory.
|Oops... something popped up on your screen after that game finished, but you accidentally closed it out. Now, an icon at the bottom of your screen is flashing to let you know you have a message. What would this icon look like?||A Beginner's Guide to "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
An envelope. The envelope icon serves two purposes. When you click on it, a window will open up showing you what messages you have received. These could either be notes from friends or alerts telling you that you have won something, such as credits from the Haunted Mansion game. If there is a message waiting for you and the message window isn't open, the envelope icon will flash to let you know something is waiting. The second purpose of the envelope icon is to show you a list of all of the people who are your friends on the game and whether or not they are online at that moment.
|If you click on the "New Orleans Square" section of the map screen, you are then taken to a screen that gives you an option of four rooms to choose from. One of those four is a virtual restaurant. You realize you are hungry after all that character creating, so you stop in to grab a bite to eat. What is the name of this restaurant?||A Beginner's Guide to "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
Blue Bayou. The Blue Bayou restaurant includes the non-player character (NPC), the Gator Waiter. He is special compared to the other NPCs because if you sit down at a table in the Blue Bayou and wave, he will come over to you. When he comes over to you, if you say the "magic word", he will put a plate of food on your table. The magic word changes every so often, usually on a monthly basis.
|Okay, now you're on the map screen. From here, you can see all of the lands available on Disney's "Virtual Magic Kingdom". Not counting the "Guest Rooms" area, which is not really a land, how many lands are there?||A Beginner's Guide to "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
Six. The lands found on the game are Main Street, Adventureland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and New Orleans Square. New Orleans Square is the newest land found on the game and it was added in early 2007.
|Once you have made your character, you are taken to the Esplanade, which is basically the entryway to the park. You can either exit the room on foot or you can select the map icon from the bottom of the screen and choose a different room from the map screen. What does the map icon look like?||A Beginner's Guide to "Virtual Magic Kingdom"
A globe. The icon that looks like arrows pointing up and down takes you to the options menu where you can turn sounds on and off as well as choosing whether or not you want to receive requests from people to be your friend or to trade items with you. The chair icon will take you to your inventory screen which is divided up into six areas: credits, furniture, clothing, pins, posters, and codes. The X icon causes you to exit the game.
