Hey everyone, Jake here! Did I miss Movie Madness Month?! Oh no! Wait a second, where did Haley go? Oh, I bet she’s running around the kingdom trying to find those lost stitch hats… She’ll never find one. I mean, seriously, free stitch hats just laying on the floor? Ha! Didn’t she know it was April Fools?
Anyway, you probably want to know what April has in store! Haley and I recently came back from scuba diving and flying through Inner-Space… can you guess the theme yet? Yes, April is Tomorrowland Quests month! Oh, and what about our hats? Baseball season has started! Cool new baseball items will be released this month as well, so batter’s up!

Push’s Trash Trivia!
Test Your Knowledge of Disney Trivia!
This Week’s Question: In the movie Tron, what does MCP stand for?
Know the answer?
Send your answer to email@example.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, April 24th, to send your answers in.
Here’s the answer to last weeks Push Trivia:This Tomorrowland attraction opened in 1967 and closed in 1985 to make way for Disney and George Lucas’ new Star Tours attraction. Name the attraction.
Answer: Adventure Thru Inner Space.
Did you know: The attraction was designed to simulate humans shrinking to a size smaller than an atom (the “inner space”). As riders waited for their journey into the atom, they were able to see other riders entering one end of the Monsanto Mighty Microscope. The other end of the Monsanto Mighty Microscope had a glass tube in which miniaturized riders could be seen moving across. The microscope was aimed at a panel beyond which snow could be seen falling.
The Sherman Brothers were tasked with writing an opening and closing song for the “Adventure Thru Inner Space” attraction. That song was Miracles from Molecules and bridged the ride message of adventure with the Monsanto company’s mission statement. A synthesized version of the song is used in the Tomorrowland background music loop. 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. Our fourth staff interview will be with someone who is a huge movie fan!
Mod name: HOST_Celluloid
What’s your favorite item?
Well, I could say my lovely crate wife Sasha, the Coffee Table Crate Color - Brown, but I’ll be a bit less cliché, and say my good friend Dave, the Bird Hat, named after the main character from one of my favorite movies, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Movie Month is Here! What’s your favorite Disney movie?
Well, I guess what you consider a Disney movie is important here. I’d say Monster’s Inc if you include Pixar. If we’re talking the Animated Canon, I’m gonna go towards Wreck It Ralph.
What are your favorite public rooms to hang out in?
I love catching a movie in the Sci-fi Dine In, but I’m gonna say the Inner-Space Shrinking room, because apparently I’m not the only one who loved 2001!
MyVMK Safety and Security
MyVMK’s ‘Call For Help’ button is easy to use and always accessible – just click on the HELP button on the lower right of the VMK player window. We encourage you to let us know if anything unsafe or suspicious catches your attention.
Tip: Remember the ‘Call For Help’ is like MyVMK’s 911. So while we encourage you to use it, please only do so for serious player issues. And like 911, using ‘Call For Help’ to report false information will get you in trouble too, so make sure you’re reporting the incident or player accurately.
If you do have a serious problem, tell us immediately! The faster you use the ‘Call For Help’ button to make us aware of a problem, the more effective we can be in taking care of the issue. So please, tell us immediately if you have a serious problem and help make MyVMK a fun and safe place for everyone.
Silence is Golden… The Ignore Button is Red!
Tip: If a player is ever being mean to you or bothering you, you can click on their avatar to bring up their player card. From there, click the red “Ignore” Button to no longer receive messages from them. Make the best of MyVMK!
Staff Impersonation is NEVER allowed!
Impersonating Staff Members is never allowed in MyVMK. If a player says they are Staff, make sure they’re wearing the orange Mickey Pin and have VMK_ (for moderator) or HOST_ (for Hosts) in their title.
Remember, MyVMK Staff will never ask you to trade any items.
You can always spot STAFF and HOSTS because they will always wear the orange Mickey Pin.
