Is it me or do you also get the feeling that EC isn't going to be as plentiful this time around.
Kinda had the same feeling on this one, but it’s always hard to judge the first few days. Sadly, it feels like something they would do and everything feels like a money grab lately. I was over 1000 gems a month or two ago and down to 323 after buying Grandma. Don’t know/think I’ll have enough gems to buy everything and probably won’t buy the attraction for this event which will be the first time I haven’t bought enough everything in an event. Also not sure if I should or shouldn’t but the float?

Welcomed Sina about 2 hours ago. Actually spent 2 gems to speed up her 6 minutes which is something I rarely if ever do. :rotfl: Was on my way to a client meeting and didn’t want to fall an hour or two behind.

Easter outfits are available for Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Pluto. They would set me back a chunk of gems. Are they worth it? Do they do ANYTHING?
Nope. Nothing.

They look cute if you like costumes. Pluto does an egg hunt task (just like his digging up bones task but finds an Easter egg instead of the bone). Minnie/Mickey do an egg hunt which is just like the pirate treasure map hunt. But no tokens or special EC or anything since they initially offered them.

I had 930 gems this morning, and now down to 680 after buying Gramdma and the float. As annoying as Tower Challenges have become, at least they don’t require gem characters (I don’t count gambling on legendary chests, no one should be buying those tbh) and I’ve been able to replenish my gems in the month or so in between regular events. Now if I decided to buy a regular gem character I def would have run out of gems by now.

    They confirmed in the livestream Tala and Hei Hei (the Chicken) will be the gem characters this time around. I found that surprising, since they don't usually reveal that until the character becomes available.
    Thanks for this. I’m gonna attempt not getting Tala and see how it goes.

    One minute in and you could have saved one gem.

    When you buy the event float package, how much event currency do you get? Normally you get the float plus a certain amount of EC.

    It use to be 1500 EC, but for some reason they include a stand with the float offer this time instead. :confused3

    Based on this and @supernova wondering if EC is gonna be less plentiful this event I wonder if they want EC to be tougher to get? I’d imagine that they hate the gem conversion and feel like they’re losing money from it. If this is their plan, they are gonna tick a lot of players off.

    I have about 3 1/2 hours until goofy drops me another token and then I can level John Sina up to level 2 and do the next task

    Thanks for the tips on those cute tasks! I love the water ones so am happy to know Eeyore swims. I like having Baloo and Mowgli float and all of the seven dwarves washing up.
    I like the dwarves too. I just wish it was longer than 1hr. It can be a project constantly sending them back out to wash up. Love Grumpy's grumpy attitude. We all get hung up on the crazy, but there really is a lot of really cute parts to this game.

    Sorry I didn’t start s list with any characters I already was using, before event began and sent out when the event started. Of the 148 characters that I had home, and had to return to find out who to use, here is my list of who collects EC.

    Mickey Mouse
    Daisy Duck
    Donald Duck
    Woody
    Bullseye
    Ham
    Cinderella
    Drizella
    Will Turner
    Mike Wazowski
    Snow White
    Grump
    The Queen
    Thank you!!! I missed Bullseye, Drizella and Will. Wish I would have checked in earlier.

    Alo:
    Goofy
    Bo Peep
    Prince Charming
    Tinkerbell
    Sarge
    Buzz
    Jessie
    Dang, I missed Bo Peep too. No wonder my ec is so low. I checked for characters at home, but I guess since they are not dropping tokens, they didn't register. The interns should fix that. They should say "collects currency" if they are part of the event.

    I noticed they give a concession with the float bundle instead of the 1500EC or so they normally put in that bundle. So they may very well be trying to make EC harder to come by this time. Bet part of their goal with that is to make the comfy costume tougher to get.
    Great...that's exactly what we need. I barely collected the last 2 comfy costumes. I was down to the last few days on both.

    Waste of gems. Save them up for a character instead. I never use those costumes.

    I’m sorry I forget this every time....is the second gem character usually 300?

    Event leaks posted on Reddit. Looks like a bear. Maui requires 50 flowers. Moana 100 tokens total (20, 30, 50). EC just for the basic over 70k, then add in the leveling up.
