I would sell my 360 a few months before this comes out. Guess I should start saving for a new one.

I've been playing this game on and off for the past two days. Getting the controls down takes a few minutes. Then it is just pure fun. When I'm playing it, I feel like I'm 10 years old all over again and have a giant grin on my face that won't go away. Easy and tricky at the same time. I'm puzzled about the Mad Hatter's photo album quest. I've gotten 2 out the 3 photos figured out but now I'm stuck. If you love Disneyland, I think you'll find the game is simply amazing!!! PS - I bought the XBox just for this game and I don't regret it.

The pixie dust should lead you there and there will be a light blue circle with arrows pointing in the direction you should take the picture.

Jenny, I'm getting the same request from my ds(11). He HAS to have the x-box kinect for Christmas. It's all he wants. We already have a Wii, and he has a PSP and Nintendo DSLite which he never uses since all he really wants to do waste hours playing Minecraft on the computer. I'm so tired of all the gaming...

But after reading this review, I'm tempted to get the x-box and Disney game for myself for Christmas. Ho Ho Ho!

Thanks so much! I've seen this magical blue Pixie Dust but didn't realize it was the clue to what I'm looking to find. Now I'm going to have to hurry up and get ready so I can try to "go to Disneyland" before work this morning.

Yesterday after lunch, a coworker asked when I was going back to Disneyland and I said, "Actually, I went there on my lunch hour today," and then proceeded to tell him all about the new game. I'm sure folks at work think I'm nuts, but I don't even care. I love Disneyland!!!!

We've had a chance to try this game out, and it is really too bad that it is a Kinect game only - it would be nice for others who have other gaming systems to be able to play it, yet I see merit in the Kinect system for this game, how you can control your player.

Here are some of our thoughts on it:

1.) Why do they have a paper train ticket for the guide rather than Tinkerbell?
2.) Why do all of the characters talk? In Disneyland Parks, only a select few can talk, so it's really weird to hear some speaking, lol.
3.) How come the ride 'games' don't really resemble the rides? It would be nice to play a game that was on a virtual track, say, as opposed to wide flowing streams of water for Splash Mountain. That being said, the games are very pleasant/fun to play!
4.) How on EARTH did they get everything in the park exactly right? My kids seriously want to know, and so do I! Did they film it first, then animate the film? The details are far too intense to have been 'drawn' to scale, we feel.
5.) How come there is no piano at the coke corner? LOL.
6.) The music - is SPOT ON! Totally takes you right there. Amazing soundtracks. Also - the people walking by - they have some interesting/cool things that they talk about.
7.) I love how the crowds part for you, to let you through.

One of the ladies working the media booth at the D23 Expo told me that they had a CM who worked in janitorial play the game and notice that a trash can was missing....so they wrote down the location and sent it to the programmers.

Callie, he's just begging for one. He uses his DSI and all his gagdets so that's the issue. Amazon is having their Buy One , Get 40% off a game today (selected games). I got the new Disney game and FIFA 12 both for the Wii. That will stop me from buying the XBox

Wow, that is totally awesome. Way to go, Disney!! The game programmers really did a fabulous job.
