Royal Rose & Christmas Party

For a long time, I was stuck trying to figure out how to make a royal rose, which was the last farming crop I needed to grow. The collection page said it was made by mixing black with gold.

Seed name: ????. Where to find: Combining : Mix black with gold!Now the problem was that the royal rose is the gold rose. So how can I mix a black rose with a gold one if I don’t have a gold one? 😛 Figuring it was an error, I tried mixing red and white, red and black, and black and white (those are the only other roses in the game). But no luck.

So I thought maybe the gold had to be a different crop altogether. So I tried crossbreeding the black rose seeds with other crops that looked gold. That included the rich butterynut seed, the royal milkberry seed, and twinkle flower seed. None of those worked either.

But finally, when I planted a golden apple seed next to the black rose, I finally got my royal rose seed! I’m not sure why or how apples are crossbreeding with roses, but I’m glad to have finally figured that out. Once I harvested the rose, my farming collection was complete!

Shortly before Christmas, Nintendo of America released another set of items via QR code on the official DMW2 site. It unlocks the following holiday items: Two Mickey Santa outfits (a red one and a green one), a rare festive candle, a festive Mickey hat, a rare dusk Mickey top hat, a rare bright mickey top hat, a festive tree balloon, holiday wallpaper, a holiday rug, a holiday table, a holiday chair, and a holiday counter.  For your convenience, here is the QR code.

Note: This QR code may only work with the American version of the game.

For a favor, Minnie invited me over to her house. The whole gang was there for a holiday get-together! It was a surprise Christmas party! Minnie also gave me two gifts, a holiday candle and festive wreath. We then took a commemorative photo together for the occasion.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

You can see I was using my shocked pose there. I’ve been having fun with that greeting (maybe a bit too much), using it all around town for no particular reason. It just looks funny, that’s all. 🙂

I recently had my first StreetPass hit in Disney Magical World 2! Sadly, it does not show the StreetPass visitor arriving by balloon like it did in the first game. But this is her, Wendy.

It looks like there are only two more dreams I haven’t viewed/played yet, so I’ll be sure to finish those off next time. Right now, my overall game collection is at 89.24% complete. Have a Merry Christmas, and I’ll see you next time!

Sticker Collection Complete & Santa Visits

After hosting a party with 20 theme points recently, I earned the “What a Party!” sticker. The party was Alice in Wonderland themed, but all that matters for the sticker was that I had 20 theme points.

And after I also hosted a Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs theme party, Letta showed up with an invitation to a ball. So I went up to the enchanted ballroom at the castle, and completed both of Snow White’s balls.

When I was done, I earned the “On the Ball” sticker for clearing all balls on all difficulties.

That left only one more sticker to obtain. And for that, I headed home and started dreaming. I went on the Lilo & Stitch dream called “Experiment 626,” the Cinderella dream “Stroke of Midnight,” the Aladdin dream “Desert Dreams,” the Peter Pan dream “Aboard the Jolly Roger,” and the Aristocats dream “Cultured Kitten.”

Here are some of the scenes from those dreams:

Get home by midnight or have your dreams squashed!

When I woke up, I earned the “Stages of Sleep” sticker for visiting a total of 25 dream stages. That was my 130th, and final, sticker of the game.

Sticker Collection Complete! Stickers x 130Today (December 17th), a very special visitor showed up when I arrived in Castleton. It was Santa Claus himself!

He wished us a Merry Christmas and he gave me a few gifts: a holiday present board, a festive headband, and a reindeer outfit. Thanks, Santa!

We then all took a commemorative photo together.

But since he had other deliveries to make, he didn’t stick around long. While Santa’s visit doesn’t add much to the gameplay, it is a nice touch for the holidays.

My item collection is currently 84.39% complete. Here’s a look at the breakdown by category:

My collection status as of December 17, 2016.I intend on fully completing my collection, although I’m not sure how long it will take. But since there aren’t a lot of major objectives yet to complete, the blog entries will likely slow down a bit now.

If I don’t see you soon, I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Completing the Pro Stickers

In addition the new winter items I mentioned last time, there are also new winter themed foods. You can purchase the recipes at Miss Teri’s Shop of Wonder with nice points. Here’s a look at what the new food items look like:

The winter themed foods in Disney Magical World 2.On the farm, I crossbred a hibiscus seed and a sunny hibiscus seed and got a rare blazing hibiscus seed as a result. I planted the seed, and once harvested, I earned the “Fiery Flower” sticker. As a reward, I received the desert traveler outfit.

You got a sticker! Fiery Flower.
Does this allow me to shoot fireballs?

After that, I went home to dream. A lot. I have tons of completed puzzles, so my dream backlog is huge. Since I went on so many dreams, I’m not going to detail every activity in each of them. But I went on the Alice in Wonderland dream “Curious Kingdom,” the Pinocchio dream “Whale of a Whale,” the Hercules dream “Hero’s Pride,” the Little Mermaid dream “Ocean Kingdom,” The Three Caballeros dream “Samba Shenanigans,” and the Snow White dream “Forest Friends.”

Here are a few of my favorite moments from those dreams:

Telling lies with Pinocchio.

Me and Hercules flying on Pegasus.

When I was done, I earned the “Life’s a Dream” sticker for visiting 20 dream stages.

After that, only one sticker remained on my page of pro stickers: Surfing more than 400m. It took me a number of attempts, but I eventually surfed for a distance of 459.8 meters. That earned me sticker #115, “Surfing? Sure Thing!”

You got a sticker! Surfing? Sure Thing!That completed the “Pro Stickers” album, but I immediately got another sticker album! This one is called “Expert Stickers,” and there are 15 final stickers to earn. But many of the expert stickers are just continuations of previous ones. For example, one of them is to wear 200 ace ensembles and one requires building 180 pieces of furniture at Chip & Dale’s workshop.

This is a bit disappointing, because I immediately earned 12 of the 15 new stickers! I had already met the requirements, so the game just kept rewarding me for them, one after another. So I only need three more stickers in the entire game, and none of them seem particularly difficult.

I’ll see you next time with more. In the meantime, here’s a look at my detailed collection status. My overall collection is 76.69% complete.
