Lights! Cameras! Action! March is…
Hey everyone, it’s Haley! I bet you were wondering where Jake and I have been for awhile, it’s a pretty long story… Hmm, where’s Jake? Don’t tell me he’s still sleeping… we have lots of news to report! Oh well… guess I’ll have to do it without him for now. Oh, and the Yeti? It’s starting to get a bit warmer so he took off running back to the Matterhorn… that place is freezing year round! We’ll be taking over for him for awhile!
Now, onto March! As you can probably guess, it’s Movie Madness Month! We’ll be celebrating some of our favorite movies with new items, clothes, pins, and more! There’s lots of surprises in store so you don’t want to miss this month! Throw in Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day, and you have yourself a maddening month!
Gold Star Reward Pin!
The new Gold Star Reward Pin is awarded to those players who are seen going above and beyond in helping out other players and staff in the game. Be nice, act friendly, help other players, and do good deeds and you may randomly be awarded this awesome new pin! It’s our way of saying “THANK YOU!” for making the kingdom even better!
Add some life to your room with the magic of animation! “Turn” your best drawings into animated classics with the Animation Viewer, this month’s current HOST prize! Not crazy about animation? Don’t worry, this item also makes a great salad spinner, you can dry lettuce in a pinch!
Fantasyland Ride Madness!
Mardi Gras Madness!
Thanks to everyone who joined us for the Mardi Gras on Tuesday, March 4th! Everyone had a great time and we hope you enjoyed the celebration! There were games, competitions, dance lines, and more as we partied for 24 hours! Players who participating in games or were seen partying the most grabbed themselves a Mardi Gras Mask - absolutely free!
See you at next years Mardi Gras!
Push’s Trash Trivia!
Test Your Knowledge of Disney Trivia!
This Week’s Question: There are hallways under the Magic Kingdom that allow Cast Members to access various areas of the Park without getting in the way of Guests. What are these hallways called?
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, March 13th, to send your answers in.
Here’s the answer to last weeks Push Trivia:
Which Disney Theme Park does not have a Tomorrowland: Disneyland, California; Walt Disney World; Disneyland, Paris; Hong Kong Disneyland; or Tokyo Disneyland?
Answer: Disneyland, Paris.
Did you know: Disneyland, Paris does not have a Tomorrowland. Instead, the land that houses Space Mountain and other famous Tomorrowland attractions is called Discoveryland. Congratulations to the 3 lucky (and randomly picked) players that sent in the correct answer for last week’s question!

February’s Best Guest Room
What makes a Guest Room award-worthy?
Guest Rooms that stand out show originality in concept and design. It could be a use of conventional furniture in unconventional ways, the use of a theme or color, or humor. The most important thing while designing a room is to have fun!
February was full of amazing guest room creations, and to everyone who entered, GREAT JOB! Here is February’s Best Guest Room winner…
BonVoyage has found Ariel’s Secret Grotto! In between the natural waterfalls lies a little seaweed covered grotto. It is rumored that Ariel herself visits this secret place every once in a while to drop trinkets and gizmos into her treasure chests. Congratulations BonVoyage!The Best Guest Room Winner receives:

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.
