One year ago today, Disney closed their online game, Virtual Magic Kingdom (or VMK). VMK was a virtual version of Disneyland, and the Magic Kingdoms. It had six lands: Main Street USA, Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Tomorrowland, and New Orleans Square. You could build rooms or just chat with friends or take a ride on the Monorail. You could buy stuff in the shops with the credits you earned from playing games, likes Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion, or by visiting the Yeti, or Captain Blackheart. You could even do quests in the real parks to earn exclusive items. VMK was awesome. In April of 2008, Disney announced VMK would be closing forever on May 21, 2008. I met alot of people while playing VMK from when it first opened, to the very last day when it closed. in one of the last newsletters before VMK closed it’s virtual gates forever, they had everyone send in their favorite VMK memories, and my memory ended up in the newsletter:
My favorite VMK Memory is giving churros to VMK Staff whenever I saw one. They would always reply with something that made me smile, now HOST_Phinny, HOST_Lily, and HOST_Hula expect a churro from me when they see me. Host need their daily churro.
I’ll always miss my virtual friends, and all the fun times I had. If any of my friends from VMK are reading this, I miss you.. and you can leave me a message on this post if you want. If you’d like to view any of my videos from VMK check out my VMK videos page here. 😀
