Celebrate with Us! September is Celebration Month! - Newsletter

Updated 12 September 2014

I can’t believe it! Twelve months ago, MyVMK was getting ready to open her virtual gates to the public. Every month there was a new theme to celebrate, create, and participate in. For the month of September, we aren’t celebrating one theme… but all of them! We will be looking back at some of the best Kingdom moments with new and old events, activities, and items! Have you missed purchasing an item, or just want to collect more of them? All month we will be re-releasing select old themed items, as well as releasing brand new items! Celebrate with us! Celebrate MyVMK!


One Year and Counting!

Main Street Music Party - Now Open!

Mix and play your own music and create a rockin’ music jam just off Main Street, U.S.A in the Street Party Music Game. Open the easy-to-use mixer to make your own music tracks. Play your music for the crowd jammin’ in the alley. It’s the biggest street party in the Kingdom, and it’s open today! Hey, you might even earn a few credits!

Take a Peak Behind The Scenes!

For the month of September, we’re going to invite you to see some never-before-seen unreleased content! Every week we’ll showcase MyVMK concept art and even silly staff bloopers! Let’s get started!

It must be windy in the testing room! We call the first blooper the Krist(off) Hat… I think you can tell why! It’s always funny when we test items and they don’t exactly go the way we wanted it… but it makes for great bloopers! The second image is the Sparky hat, but like most Experiments, he just doesn’t want to stay put! I wonder what he’s looking at?

It’s a Party… A Mad Tea Party!

Available Now! Try your luck at pulling the Sword in The Stone to obtain the new Mad Tea Party Pin! The Sword in the Stone will begin having less pins added as frequently as before. Good luck!

Push’s Trash Trivia!

Test Your Knowledge of Disney Trivia!

This Week’s Question: This EPCOT attraction gets dirty to put you in touch with the planet. What is it?

Know the answer?

Send your answer to trivia@myvmk.com. Be sure to provide your MyVMK username in the email with the answer. From the correct answers submitted, we randomly select three players as the winners and send them a Push Trivia Pin! You have until Thursday, September 18th, to send your answers in.

Here’s the answer to last weeks Push Trivia: Who is the evil witch that turns herself into a dragon to keep Prince Phillip from rescuing Sleeping Beauty?

Answer: Maleficent.

Did you know: As Prince Phillip attempts to rescue Sleeping Beauty from the castle he is attacked by Maleficent the evil witch, who has taken the form of a fire-breathing dragon! Armed with only the magical Sword of Truth and Shield of Virtue, Prince Phillip takes on the giant dragon in a fight to save Sleeping Beauty!

Disney Legend Eyvind Earle was responsible for the overall look of Sleeping Beauty. An accomplished artist at the age of 13, Earle worked on many Disney animated films including The Lady and the Tramp, Peter Pan and the 1958 animated classic short Paul Bunyan. He painted most of the backgrounds for Sleeping Beauty by hand. Congratulations to the 3 lucky (and randomly picked) players that sent in the correct answer for last week’s question!

If you’re a pirate looking for a vacation, check in to the Tortuga Hotel and Outdoor Café owned by cruiselinefan! Make a reservation at Tortuga Hotel and relax at the outdoor café while watching ships come to port! Congratulations!

What is your favorite pieces of furniture, and why?
My favorite furniture are the Typhoon Lagoon Palm Tops and Trunks. They are absolutely necessary when building a room and filling in the void spots.

What is your favorite type of Guest Room?
My favorite type of guest rooms are GAME rooms! I love joining our players in a round of falling chairs. They really have some great game ideas!

What is your favorite public room?
The best public room in MyVMK is the Fantasyland Courtyard. You can always catch a few laughs with the players between rides, and I love watching everyone try their luck with the Sword in the Stone.

Best MyVMK Moment?
The best MyVMK moment was bumping into friends I’d lost contact with years ago. It’s as if time stood still in MyVMK and we had just talked yesterday. It was a very special experience!
