Hello and greetings my little lost boys and girls. First of all, I just want to say how sorry I am that this post was not up earlier. Mom is in town for vacation and we hit up Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom today. You might say that we were playing the extreme version of DMK today! With that being said, I still wanted to do a recap of today’s livestream and comment on the changes and additions coming to the game. So let’s head towards the second star from the right and see what the game has in store for us in the very near future.
Before jumping in I want to make one thing very clear even though I know someone will shamelessly ask it in the comments. THIS CONTENT IS NOT AN EVENT! IT IS PART OF THE MAIN STORY LINE! Alright, moving on.
Peter Pan Characters
Not surprising anyone except for those readers who live under rocks, Peter Pan was the main event for this livestream. What I did find surprising was the minimal amount of characters. But then I suppose that we only really get big character dumps when in the midst of an event. And I’ve heard loud a clear that people want a break from events. Personally I like events, but a little not so timed content is always fun as well.
Peter, along with besties Wendy and Hook will be joining Tinker Bell in their quest to fly around the castle for hours on end and still not find any tokens. Hopefully with their powers combined, it will be easier.
I for one am very excited to welcome Captain Hook. This way we have someone to send all the park alligators after!
They even have a fun new animation where Peter and Hook fight while Buzz and Shere Kahn combine to become Voltron!
Peter Pan Attractions
Along with several concessions and decorations, we’ve got three new attractions joining the fray. Here we see the Jolly Roger. Though since I won’t be getting any extra land for him, I don’t suppose he’ll be all that jolly.
Here we have everyone’s favorite night club and first date spot, the Lost Boys Hideout.
And if its a peaceful ride past the moon you’re after, look no further than Peter Pan’s Flight, a fan favorite at Disney World, this game version even comes equipped with a life like 70 – 90 minute wait time!
New Parade Float
Updates and Parade Floats go together like Updates and Players who Freak Out when they Don’t have enough room for everything. Luckily, you don’t need room for a parade float, just love in your heart…and probably some gems or potions or something.
This one is based on the parade float in the festival of fantasy parade and I must say that I am quite a fan!
Now it’s time to talk about some new features! I like my new features shaken, not stirred. This first one is rather dashing if I must admit. By clicking the Mickey icon with the busy signal, you’ll be able to see what everyone is up to and then quickly locate them in the park. This is helpful if you want to quickly finish their task or if you want to show off an animation. There is a little box in the upper left which also makes me think you could simply auto complete tasks from this window, making life very much easier.
And finally, we have the new Calendar system. The Calendar will track your daily rewards and even give you special rewards for log in streaks if you log in several days in a row. In the upper left, you can also see how many consecutive days you’ve logged in as well as your total log in days since you started playing! Welp, now the game will be able to let me know how much of my life I’ve wasted…so I guess that’s good? But really, I am very excited about this log-in streak business. I have a bad habit of taking a lot of time off when we are not in an event period. This just might do the trick to keep me logging in!
As a side note, I will mention that the social element of the game has temporarily been removed. While I will not miss this one bit, I am excited to see what new version of it they come up with in the future!
What Do You Think?
So what do you guys think?! Let me know in the comments. I like that this is a very quick and simple update. It provides just a little content while we wait for the next big event and allows everyone to build up some stores of potions and gems and whatnot. While I’ll always prefer events, it’ll be nice to sit back and take a breather on this one!
