It was a tough day for everyone in the Kingdom. But none so much as Prince Charming who spent the better part of the day making uncomfortable faces and searching far and wide for his beloved Cinderella. Well, I am here to tell you that she has arrived and…well…he still seems sort of upset. Let’s take a look.
Prince Charming seems to have a constant grouchy “I’ve been waiting for this table for ten minutes” look that is permanently plastered to his face.
Awww, but just look at him with his little shoe! Be still my heart!
Shortly after opening up and placing the Carousel, which is a lovely little attraction, you’ll be asked to welcome Cinderella…ella…eh…eh… oh sorry, where were we?
Oh right, you want to know about her requirements for welcoming and who can help you attain her tokens. Yes, yes, here we are.
Note that her shoe is legendary and the only one who can get it is Prince Charming. The carriages are common and easy to grind every hour from the Prince. The tough one ends up being the hats. While most quests are relatively long, the best way to farm them is from the Fantasia Gardens and Fairways.
All of your hard work will be paid off as you welcome the lovely Cinderella…ella…ella…eh…eh. STOP IT JAYSEN! Oh right, you probably want a photo.
After Welcoming Cinderella
Cinderella starts things off by letting us know just how clumsy and forgetful she is.
But then Prince Charming finds the slipper…Umm, Prince Charming. Psst. You’re supposed to be holding a slipper. Oh gosh, this is embarrassing.
Ummm, do you guys want me to leave…or…
Before long, you’ll be sending them to dance for a bit. And that is where I’ve gotten up to this point. Dancing the night away, probably losing more shoes. It’s interesting to note that this storyline seems completely separated from everything else and does not progress the main story-line.
It’s just so beautiful. I feel the tears. Prince Charming has finally found Cinderella….ella….okay let’s move on.
Remember when Clean Sweep was a thing? Remember how we were not really feeling it, but then we got bots and everyone was like, “I’d rather have the brooms!” Well this is all those people’s fault.
The magic brooms return, which would be fine but we’ve become spoiled, haven’t we. We’ve become a people that searches for a button to tell us where they are, yet no button can be found and we cry to the heavens in despair.
The other trouble is that our Kingdoms are much bigger now than the last time we went through this. This means that finding the brooms is a far more daunting task to be sure. Yet somehow, some folks are still pulling through and keeping atop the leaderboards. I for one, will not be searching high and low for these fellows. I’ve got chests to find thank you very much.
New Icon for Tinkerbell
So this one is a little odd. Someone managed to catch on that one of Tink’s tokens has gotten an upgrade.
Why this change was necessary, I’m not really sure, but I will say that the design of the new token is leaps and bounds prettier than the original fish bowl thing. I like the idea that the artistry of the game can change and really gives me that vibe that the devs truly love and respect what they are doing.
More Fun with Enchanted Chests
As I continue to explore the Enchanted Chests, I’m noticing a few things I thought I’d share.
First off, they can be ANYWHERE! Nothing is off limits here. Even darkened “Coming Soon” zones are in play.
The other thing to note is that while them seem to spawn every few hours, they also can randomly drop from completing quests or collecting on buildings. This means that you will often get them when you least expect it and you are encouraged to send other characters on missions to get them.
I’ve also managed to unlock some fun new things.
New Wish Granters
It also turns out that Prince Charming, as well as Mike can now grant wishes, which means even more kids can be happy. Also, can we talk about the kids who come to the park to meet Mother Gothel? Should we be concerned? Has anyone reached out to their parents?
Update Thoughts so Far
What I really love about this update is that there is a nice sense of wonder. I feel compelled to play in order to find these chests. I like the randomness of it, because it means that I never quite know what’s going to drop. It’s a fun way to earn new rewards and manages to take away the sense that I can just buy everything and be done with it. I LOVE being asked to search my Kingdom for the chests which hold surprises. I’m looking at my park in new ways and discovering all its nooks and crannies. More than anything I love that this mechanic of the chests has such great usage for the future of the game in giving this feel more and more as things are added to the chests.
Overall, while the update is certainly smaller than we had hoped, it introduces some hefty changes that will have great impacts down the line!
Today’s question is this: Where is the weirdest place you’ve found a chest? Let me know in the comments!
