Push’s Trash Trivia!
Test Your Knowledge of Disney Trivia!
This Week’s Question: In the Walt Disney classic Pinocchio, Pinocchio dreams of becoming a real what?
Know the answer?
Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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, October 2nd, to send your answers in.
Here’s the answer to last weeks Push Trivia: Mickey Mouse plays a sorcerer in this short featured in the animated classic Fantasia – name the cartoon.
Answer: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Did you know: Mickey was actually redesigned for “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” by animator Fred Moore. Moore gave Mickey a more modern look, adding pupils to the character’s eyes for the first time – Mickey’s new look however would appear in theaters before Fantasia was released, as other cartoons like The Pointer (1939) and Mickey’s Surprise Party (1939) also featured the character’s new look and were completed before Fantasia.
The Sorcerer in “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” segment was secretly modeled by animators after Walt Disney. The Sorcerer’s name is Yen Sid, which is “Disney” spelled backwards – if you watch careful you can see one of Walt Disney’s signature facial expressions – a raised eyebrow. Congratulations to the 3 lucky (and randomly picked) players that sent in the correct answer for last week’s question!

MyVMK Staff Profiles
Ever wanted to know more about your favorite staff member? Now you can! Every so often we will be interviewing a different member of the MyVMK Staff. Here is the most recent interview!
Mod name: HOST_Cherub
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!
