Celebrate with Us! September is Celebration Month! - Newsletter

Updated 29 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!

MyVMK Scheduled Testing

Head’s up! On September 30th at 5:00PM EST MyVMK may not be fully functional as we perform some routine tests and maintenance. We invite you to log-in and play during this time, however, the game may experience lag and some features such as mini-games or the monorail may be down during this time period. The test will only last between 10 - 30 minutes and the game will go back to normal afterwards. Thank you!

Double Credit Day!

Get ready to celebrate! Saturday, September 27th is our One Year Anniversary Day, but it just got better… it’s a double credit day! ALL credit making activities, including minigames, NPCs, Shells, and Music Mixer will be doubled for the day! Fill your virtual pockets with all of the credits you can carry!

Complete the MyVMK Birthday Quest!

September 27th is MyVMK’s anniversary! Be sure to complete the one-day only quest that will be available to receive the VMK Birthday Pin as your reward! You can start the quest by clicking the “Q” button on the toolbar located below the game. Act quickly though, the quest and pin will only be around exclusively for MyVMK’s birthday!

Main Street and Monorail 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!

We had tons of ideas over the summer that didn’t quite make it into the game just yet. Here are just a few of the ideas that were created! The first image showcases Olaf’s Summer Set! From dandelion grass carpets to a yummy drink in Olaf’s hand, these items were inspired by Olaf’s Song, “In Summer!”. The second image showcases Sven from start to finish. The item process starts with drawing the concept sketch, then adding in color, and finally adding all the details and textures. We hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes look!

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: In the Walt Disney classic Pinocchio, Pinocchio dreams of becoming a real what?

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, 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!

Winners:

Babydolls

MyVMK Staff Profiles

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!
