Next Walt Disney Sign-UpsWalt Disney World: Sign up for Next Walt Disney here! Details inside.
From Andy MilioWelcome 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.

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

Posted January 6, 2011 at 3:14 PM
From Carrie HoodI'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.
Posted January 6, 2011 at 9:06 PM
If that's okay I'd like to join in.
From Andy MilioCool, first challenge is already up. I will add a challenge later. Thanks for joining

From Ben BasfordI'm excited but I have never done this before, is there a protocol sheet I can use as an example or something to that nature because I have no idea what we're doing ..thanx
Posted January 7, 2011 at 8:59 AM
From damond harrisHey Ben you should look at some of the theme park apprentice post, that's what I did.
Posted January 7, 2011 at 10:38 AM
From David SutterOk Andy whats the challange. And due date.
Posted January 9, 2011 at 6:18 AM
From Andy MilioDavid, 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
Posted January 9, 2011 at 7:13 AM
From Randall PeekHas 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?
Posted January 10, 2011 at 9:43 PM
From Mike GallagherRandall, you must not be looking very hard. I barely follow the "creating" threads, and even I saw the thread you're seeking.
Posted January 11, 2011 at 5:09 AM
From Andy MilioHere Randall. This will answer your question: http://www.themeparkinsider.com/news/response.cfm?ID=945507740
