CM communication -

The communication between Cast Members and guests was also greatly improved - as we were told right off the top that the pins would be available for sale at locations close to the clue destinations. And - if you didn’t hear it from the CM it was in the game card’s fine print. I don’t know if this was a function of it having been the second event - or if the training was just a bit better for this event - at any rate - this was a major improvement.

the game card -

The game card art is very cute and the card stock it’s printed on is substantial - well made all the way around. I’ll call it a game card - as it wasn’t meant to be a map. I like this logo - I really like this logo - I’d buy a pin with this logo (hint - hint - hint).

the game -

I also really like Disneyland foot-rallies and trivia games and the clues for this one were well thought out and made for a challenging walk around the park - even of you knew where you were going it was still a hike. The morning was beautiful, clear, cool and sunny - so off we went - there were seven stops - from Main Street to the it’s a small world mall then over to New Orleans Square and from there into Adventureland and then over to Frontierland and then way out to Mickey’s ToonTown and - finally to Tomorrowland. It was much more challenging if you played along and enjoyed the fun.

Very Cute! Very Free! Very Mickey! What more do you want? It also has an event specific backstamp - and yes - I’m a collector who notices and cares about such things. It’s a LE of 5,000.
