    We are going to have a virtual Disneyland online!

    from USATODAY.com

    Disney plans to mix ads, video games to target kids, teens

    excerpt:

    As part of an 18-month global campaign that kicks off on May 5, Disney will roll out an interactive, multiplayer game called "Virtual Magic Kingdom." It aims to provide a virtual visit to Disney's five global resorts and 11 theme parks to anyone with an Internet connection. The target: "tweens" ages 8 to 12 and young teens.

    Visitors will be able to play free online games based on real attractions, such as the Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise. They'll also be able to chat, create their own avatars, or graphic icons representing real-life Web surfers in cyberspace, and earn virtual points that can be redeemed for T-shirts and other goodies at the actual parks.

    Sounds like SO much fun!!

    Everyday I tell myself I'm sane
    like a water color painter painting in the rain
    Everyday she flows right through my veins
    and my song remains the same

    We are going to have a virtual Disneyland online!

    With all the attraction closures the last few years, I rather felt like we were headed toward a virtual Disneyland at Disneyland itself!

    hmmm - I get some of this now with the various video games they have created with the theme park elements in them. This will be better since it will involve a lot of technology from their Toontown online role-playing game...

    Can you imagine - interacting with someone online who uses a mickey avatar - and then they get in your face... I hope there is a private mode!
