I found out about VMK when I read the kingdom keepers series. I tried to look for it online but I guess it was kinda late. By the way other disboarders described it, it sounded like a fun little virtual world. I wish it was still up and running so I could try it out. :( :( :( :(

VMK was the best website for a Disney kid ever!!! I was there from the start till the end. I went on there every day and had lots of friends that I made. It was almost as fun as going to the actual park! When I did to to the park. I went on actual quests and earned a bunch of online prizes. I had the most awesome rooms and clothes. When Disney announced that it was closing VMK down, I was devastated. VMK was my childhood and was important to me as Facebook is to teens today. I am so upset that it closed after only a few years and I was more than willing to pay for a membership. I wish I could have took screenshots of my rooms that I worked so hard to decorate. The only thing that's really left is VMK Revisited. It's the closest thing to what VMK was like. I cried the first time I went on that website because it was 4 years since I have been on VMK. Sadly the whole VMK will be forever closed, but at least us VMK alumni and people who hadn't played VMK can see what was once the best Disney website for kids. Btw, my user name was FlowerPower144, if anyone knew me.

I practically lived on VMK when it first came out, haha. I would finish my school work and then go right to my computer and play VMK for hours. :rotfl:

Oh my goodness, I LOVED VMK.
My favorite game was the Haunted Mansion game, and I was quite good at it. I liked all the coins from it. Sadly I can't remember my username. At the end I mostly always my Belle dress and gold ears. I liked the monorail too, but the game always crashed.

VMK was the best. I remember I only started getting into doing the quests a few months before it closed, but I loved them! I also really liked the Checkers game on Main Street, and I was a beast at the Pirates game ;) I loved the Briar Patched themed room because it reminded me of Splash Mountain <3 & I remember every Friday the stores would come out with new stuff, I specifically remember "running" to the Emporium every Friday after school to stock up! :cool2:

Agreed, that game was amazing and now there's nothing like it. It was a cool place for us Disney freaks to hang out together. I miss it so much

Apparently those vmk kids have grown up enough to get someone to actually develop a game. They have no disney backing of course and are prepared if they are shut down. But, it opens tonight. register at openvmk.com slash relive. I havent made enough posts to put in a link. How embarrassing since I have been reading this for Quite some time. LOL
I got totally hooked on vmk with all the tweeners because i was playing with my kids. Met some great adult friends too.
I am afraid disney will shut it down, so wanted to give people a chance to know about it, at least. It took my son working really hard at convincing me that this wasnt some fake game. they have closely recreated vmk. called ovmk. woohoo!

I found it, and am now wondering if it's a bad idea to sign up due to possible suing from
Disney?

Not likely that any players of the game would get in trouble from Disney. If Disney objects, the game would probably just get shut down.

People in OVMK were saying that Disney knows about and that as long as there is no $$ involved, that they are ok with it at this point.

They have banners all over that say "OpenVMK is a way for fans to revisit their old home, Virtual Magic Kingdom. By playing this game, you understand that it is solely for the use of entertaining fans and was originally created by Disney and/or its affiliates. OpenVMK is run by fans, for fans."

It has been up and down as they work through enabling features. Only Yeti and Esmeralda are giving credits so far of the NPC's and none of the games are up yet, but it is soooo goood to be home again in the VMK world.

Hey guys,

I was a staff member at one point during OpenVMK's existence. The game creator and I are on a first name basis (put it that way), but the cost to keep the game open, as well as outside factors have caused the game to close. Disney Interactive did know about it, and they were furious, but couldn't do anything really because the developers weren't collecting money for operation.

I hope all you who had a chance to log on went back to the memories of what VMK was really like, and will continue to remember what VMK stood for.

Thanks. I really wished it worked out. It was a shame after all that hard work. My computer was down when it was live. I have a small glimmer of hope I'll get to play again some day.

I'm so sorry, from the bottom of my heart. We all wanted it to work out, trust me, but things like these.. I don't know, it wasn't the same as having Disney run it. Yes, we tried our best, but OpenVMK didn't nearly achieve the level of professionalism and dedication to the magic the original VMK was.

One can only hope that Disney has a new idea in the making, something along the lines of a new VMK... incorporating all the parts of Walt Disney World and Disney Land into one game.. We shall see

After how Disney ended VMK (and just recently Toontown Online, Pixie Hollow, and POTC online) I don't think I can ever trust them in any other online games.

Don't get me wrong, if they opened something along the lines of VMK again, I would definitely check it out. But I would be hard-pressed to spend any money on it due to Disney's track record.

Which is very understandable. Disney, from what I hear, is going towards making apps currently.. But closing down all the major games does make me wonder a little, is there something BIG coming?

I wonder if Disney Ifinity was there next big move. Personally, I have no intrest in it. I do hope something big is coming. Excluding VMK Disney doesn't seek to do well in that department. I know someone who worked in that part of Disney and quickly quit. I know VMK was more an ad, but hey it worked. It made my friend want and go to WDW.

Oh trust me, it was.. The creator of the game coded in the wrong software for alpha, so he had to recode the whole game again prior to open beta.. It was a long time spent. It really is too bad it didn't work out. All I can say is I'm sorry :/

Yikes... Don't worry, it's not anyone's fault. It's just dispointing.
