I came to update the thread because I've severely been slacking. I updated the app to the Lilo & Stitch update...but the app won't launch. Well, I shouldn't say it won't launch. it launches, but when I get to the "Hipster Whale" splash screen it just hangs. Little duder just keeps bobbing up and down.

Anyone else having troubles?

I'm not having that problem, but you're not alone. I saw a question about it on the FAQ, so it sounds like a fair number of other people are also having the same issue.

I'm having a different issue since updating to 2.8. When I buy a box from the 100 coin machine, periodically (no pattern that I can figure out), it pops out the box, goes to open it, and then reverts back to the original screen with the two machines showing. No character was displayed. My coin count went down by 100, but nothing else changed (no new character that I could see and my pixel count stayed the same). Hopefully that's not a new feature that they intended! I sent an email to Guest Services, but I'm still waiting to hear back.

When I got Jasmine last night, it unlocked the Pink Flamingo character. So it looks like she's part of the Agrabah Royalty set.

Same for Gideon, I unlocked him last night when I got Finnick.

    Have just installed this game as a replacement for Enchanted Tales, and I must say I've been enjoying it a lot.

    I am trying to do as much as possible for free without buying any characters (thanks to my previous experience with Disney). The ticket machine is definitely helping.

    I've recently gotten Little Dory from a ticket machine, and she is now my favourite. I also like the Inside Out game play (thanks to winning Joy :hyper:).

    I do have a question however for you more experienced players. Is there any characters that you would suggest I buy in the future that would help me in gaining free characters going forward? Thanks for any help :).

    Buying Ham will allow you to pick up red coins that are worth 5. Also, I've found that the free prize you get every six hours tends to be bigger.

    Thanks Mikepizzo, that sounds like a pretty good bonus :-). Looks like Ham is now on the To Buy list.

    Ham is also available through the prize machine. Or at least he was. I wonder if they removed him? But I did get him for free that way.

    They also recently added the "Genie in the Lamp" (paid figure) which doubles the pixels you get from gift boxes and duplicates. I've found that this bonus has made it easier to level up figures and earn tickets.

    I still have not been able to actually get to the game. It just keeps hanging out the Hipster Whale splash screen, even after the update. I just sent another email to support. Their first email was essentially, "we're working on a fix in the next update so be on the lookout for that". Pretty disappointing.

    And at the same time they added the Genie, they cut the number of coins we can win in half. Clever...

    I just got the Cut-In-Half Dog from the ticket machine, which looks like it's going to be one of the prizes from this weekend's Inside-Out Challenge (I have to admit that the character is pretty awful - not something I would have opted to create). That's to bad that unreleased weekend challenge event characters are already available via the ticket machine. When there was that slight glitch at the Toy Story Challenge appeared, I know that folks that already had the characters didn't get anything (coins, pixels, tickets) when they unlocked the second and fourth tier (I didn't), has that been consistent for other times when folks got the weekend challenge characters from the ticket machines beforehand?

    I wish I was able to chime in at all. Ever since the Stitch update my app just hangs at the Hipster Whale splashscreen, and support basically says, "just wait until the next update". Unfortunately the fix didn't come with the Pirates - Dead Men Tell No Tales update.

    I'm pretty disappointed as this was one app that I actually put money into.

    And sorry for not keeping the list up to date. When I find time I'll update it.

    I haven't seen this posted here, so forgive me if this is a repeat ...

    If you play the Windows PC version of Disney Crossy Road, there have been multiple comments in recent store reviews that Disney is no longer updating the app. There haven't been any weekend challenges in a number of weeks.

    Right. The game for Windows and Windows-based phones is essentially defunct, at least for the time being.

    I have been following this thread for a while and decided to join to see if anyone has the same problem as me. For the past three weekends the challenge has been the same, Toy Story. The prizes are the Robot and the Peas. It even starts earlier, around Wednesday and lasts until Friday when it starts again.
    Also, today was the first time in 4 days that I could get past the Hipster Whale screen. It sometimes just stays there, just as some have mentioned. I've emailed support but the told me the same thing as OP, I need to wait until the ext update.
    PS. Ham was removed from the coin machine because I got all the characters you can get from the machine (Ham never showed up) and it blocked the machines, saying I had to wait for an update to get new characters. I bought Ham a month or so ago because of this, a day before the Genie was released.

    I'm wondering if they are trying to give people a chance to win older characters, or if they are slowly running out of new characters to include while they are waiting to introduce new films. Now that I have every character (including Hamm**, who I won for free very early on in the prize machine), so I'm fine with having a two-week break from these weekend challenges.

    **I'm actually surprised that they were giving Hamm away, considering the equivalent character in the original Crossy Road game was a character that cost money.

    I also found it strange. Another things that's happening to me is that the daily challenges disappeared after I updated the app yesterday.

    I think that happens once they run out of characters to offer. After they provide a full update with new characters pending, the daily challenges normally return. Mine disappeared after I completed their current figurine set.

    Daily challenges disappeared for me yesterday as well, just like @marameansdemon. Looks like a bug, since I still have characters left that can be earned by daily missions. Checking through all character sets, my game shows 17 characters as "Complete Daily Missions to unlock."
