Contact the news! Rumble the newspapers! Do anything to keep our favorite game. Boycott going to Disney parks and boycott Disney movies! Anything to give them bad publicity! Keep up the good work everyone.

Just because they sent a response that it not what you want to hear, don't give up. Keep up the letters. They are just hoping we will give up and move on to one of their other games. Tell them what you think of the other games and how much more you like VMK. You all have been doing so well. This is just one step. Time for the next step and keep reinforcing to Disney that you do not accept their reply. Good work people!

They still arent too clear as to why its closing.
If they give a REASONABLE reason as to why they are closing, i wouldnt be as furiated as i am now.

If its just for monetary purposes, then thats wrong.
They made over $700million last year from just internet games. Im sure keeping vmk wouldnt be that big of a deal.

Really at this point, sending letters won't do any harm. The biggest fear by trying to save something is losing it; but we're already going to (as of now). So keep sending letters; it can only get better.

Best of luck,

Disney and their 'moving forward'ness. VMK is just fine to me. There is no game they make that can compare, period!

Not very encouraging news. They are missing the whole point. Sure they might develop a great new online game but without our friends it will never be good enough.

You know, Meet the Robinsons was an extreemly unique and heart-felt film, and I'm really getting tired of them running it's theme into the ground simply because they were suddenly made aware of this convinient 'motto' that Walt once said, and now use it for eeeeeveeeeery thing.


They've decided, and they aren't going to change their minds. That's how they work. We just have to accept it, from their point of view, but I highly doubt that their next projects will get as equal and possitive a reaction as they are thinking that it will, because now we've learned what putting effort and time into a Disney game gets us: The eventual scrapping and deletion of the game. I won't be playing any of their newer games, as I strive to learn from my past experiences, and I won't be waisting my time a second time around.

Hmm seems like we'll have to work harder such as contacting every site partially connected to WDIG about vmk. Maybe even contact the head honcho himself, Stephen Wadsworth.

No that isn't how they work...
Remember when Epcot 25th, Disney said no plans they wont do it and look they caved in and did a special 25th celebration just because of a few hundred people.

They can change their minds. They have before and they will again. They just need to be reminded that we are not going to let it go because of some mass mailing.

Keep up the fight.

If Disney keeps getting hammered with e-mails to keep VMK open, and that people are leaving their pay to play games, they will keep it open, it has been getting out of hand for them, people are contacting the news. Disney is getting a bad reputation on this, if they close VMK, they will have an overwhelming amount of people hating VMK, and that will spread.

Think about it, it's not over!!!!!
