Next Walt Disney Sign-Ups

Walt Disney World: Sign up for Next Walt Disney here! Details inside.

Welcome all to the Next Walt Disney sign-ups! In case all you guys are wondering, this is not plagiarising Theme Park Apprentice. I had permission from Tim W to make this sort of continuation of TPA. Now, this game plays the same as TPA: contestants design attractions, shops, or whatever the task is and we have a poll to see who stays and who leaves. I will also be playing, but I pledge not to gain votes or hype in an unfair way. So, if you would like to sign-up, say so on this thread. I will unveil the tasks after I get a number of contestants. PLEASE DON'T SIGN UP IF YOU ARE GOING TO DROP OUT. Thanks.
-Andy

^Shouldn't be too hard. I'm doing most of the challenges from TPA's 1st season. Now we're at 5! Yay!

From Randall Peek

I would like to join, too. I promise not to drop out, although I suspect that I'll be forced out of the running early on. Hey, I can be the theme park equivalent of William Hung!

Wasn't sure if you were just updating the count to 6 or limiting it to six, but I'd like to join too if you still have room.

Alright! I can't wait to share my ideas. Do all our ideas have to be Disney based themes?

From Andy Milio
Posted January 6, 2011 at 3:10 PM
Yes, all challenges will take place at Disney parks, but I might change that

From damond harris
Posted January 6, 2011 at 3:14 PM
Ok I hope you do because I have some ideas for universal as well

From Carrie Hood
Posted January 6, 2011 at 9:06 PM
I'd be willing to take a shot at this but with school and such I might be a little slow to post things up or get ideas fully finished.

If that's okay I'd like to join in.

Hey Ben you should look at some of the theme park apprentice post, that's what I did.

From David Sutter

Ok Andy whats the challange. And due date.

From Andy Milio
Posted January 9, 2011 at 7:13 AM
David, the challenge is not on this thread. There is a different thread. It is a dark ride challenge and it is due by January 16

From Randall Peek
Posted January 10, 2011 at 9:43 PM
Has the actual game thread begun already? If so, I am unable to find it. I'd like to get started, as the 16th is my birthday and I'd like to have my submission ready before then. What are the criteria for the dark ride?

Randall, you must not be looking very hard. I barely follow the "creating" threads, and even I saw the thread you're seeking.
