Yesterday’s closure of Disney’s Virtual Magic Kingdom caused such an uproar that Disney management has decided to rethink the entire situation. At this point, VMK will be closed for a month of “retooling,” after which it will be reopened — as the latest Disney Vacation Club property!
Guests who wish to purchase Virtual Magic Kingdom virtual property will receive a number of “points,” which may be exchanged for time visiting with friends and interacting with the VMK environment. Alternately, points may be used at more than 100 other online destinations, such as Club Penguin, World of Warcraft, and a variety of off-shore casinos.
Ownership will cost as little as $15,000/year for a family of four, and will be available anywhere Disney can fit a sales cart.
