Elf Island Is Opening!

Pre-Registered Users Catch the First Boats to Elf Island Beta!
For those who have pre-registered with Elf Island, sound the alarms and alert your friends: beginning this Tuesday, the first boat sets sail for Elf Island!
The anticipation is building as the elves prepare for your arrival within the next two weeks. Many have been working around the clock to ensure you have the best experience as a new elf on our island.
As one of the first to inhabit Elf Island, you will notice that we have five island rules:
1. Have fun! You’ve earned bragging rights being the 1st to inhabit Elf Island.
2. Share your thoughts and ideas. You are making Elf Island the best virtual world.
3. Think creatively! You are entering a fantastical world with great possibilities.
4. Remain patient and forgiving in this early stage of Elf Island.
5. Explore and listen! Elf Island is filled with hidden rooms, mini-games, special features and sounds.
Tuesday, November 4th from 4pm ET – 10pm ET our first boat will begin boarding pre-registered elves.
** Boarding rights are based on the date you requested a user name and password. **
Because of the overwhelming amount of kids that pre-registered, we will have one boat a day setting sail for Elf Island. Did you make the first boat? Don’t worry if you don’t see your user name on this list. We will have a new list of user names for the second boat on Wednesday.
Click here (http://www.elfisland.com/boatone.html) to see if you made the first boat.
Note - If you try to board one of our boats before the date you pre-registered, the elves will politely ask you to get back in line and patiently wait. Rest assured, your time will come. We will post new user names and continue these times (4pm ET – 10pm ET) daily until we launch to the public.
We expect this process to happen within a two-week timeframe. Soon thereafter, we will open Elf Island and allow the world to come experience our own fantastical world.
Please spread the word — Elf Island is coming.

I'm on the boat with the names Noelle, Jenna, and Alexabelle. My daughter is Belle, Ella and Elizabeth. If I had known we were filling up boats, I might have waited on a few of these. I hope everyone who missed the first boat gets the next one!

4. Remain patient and forgiving in this early stage of Elf Island.

I cannot stress that enough, I know this probably wont be a problem for most DIS'ers but please do keep in mind that this is the first day, if you see someone stressing out over it please remind them if you can. If its one thing we learned from VMK its patience.

Hope to see everyone tuesday at 4:00!

Try real hard to remember it. There was no e-mail sent when we registered so i am not sure if there is a way to retrieve lost passwords yet.

Come on memory, don't fail me now.I think a lot of us are in the same "boat" since there were no emails required for preregistration, and it was soooo long ago. :rolleyes:

Oh STINK! I think I'm in the same boat as Card (no pun intended... really!) I don't think I'm going to remember my password now after all this time has passed. I do remember having to add number/s to my "usual" password and thinking to myself, "hope this opens soon bc I probably won't remember this"... and guess what... months later, there's not a chance in the world I'm going to remember what I picked for a password. Grrr....

That's why I have a list in my computer of all my registered names and passwords. :) So if I do forget, I can look it up.

I truly hope that those who are having trouble remembering their passwords do remember them. I want to see al my friends again!

I do better than that...I email myself my list to my hotmail account....one set up for just holding important files.... You know usernames, passwords, my mp3 of "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis...oops tmi, huh? :P

Then if my computer crashes, I have that list safe.

Redundancy...redundancy...redundancy... :D

:sad1: :sad1: I did not make the first boat! I am just glad they waited until after I got back from vacation to open.

I had to go with FlyinPegasus as they only allow so many spaces for your name.

Well you guys get the game all figured out for those of us who are still waiting!

Lots of familar names on that list though! Woot!

Hope to see you all soon! :dance3:

Anyone know Elf Island's official closing time? I'm not sure how long I'll be waiting in line this evening and I'm hoping to make it back before it closes.

I believe the time you see is just a beta thing, they made a point to actually type the date and time in the message.

Tuesday, November 4th from 4pm ET – 10pm ET our first boat will begin boarding pre-registered elves.
** Boarding rights are based on the date you requested a user name and password. **

Looks good so far...Lots to explore if I can get past several bugs I've encountered already. This is running very slowly on my laptop. :(

I can barely move or speak; going to abandon this for now. Unless something changes dramatically in the game, it looks like my computer is not going to be able to handle it.
