Alice in Wonderland

I returned to the Lilo & Stitch world (Hawaii), where the next episode rewarded me with a nice massage.

Lomi: Now for the best massage you'll ever have!Have I mentioned this game has some weird objectives? 😛 But that’s not a complaint. They sure don’t rub me the wrong way.

Later, I headed up to the castle, where an episode board was unlocked. I can now participate in dances in the enchanted ballroom. The dances are essentially rhythm games where you must press buttons at the appropriate times. Cinderella and Prince Charming showed up.

Cinderella: We're so glad you could come to our ball.After a few introductory words from them, the dance began.

Once I was done, I got a new sticker for completing my first dance, and another for clearing a ball with a perfect rating. These balls were my least favorite part of the original Disney Magical World. But at least the first couple of dances are pretty easy to complete.

The third one was a bit harder, and it earned me a sticker for clearing a difficult ball with a gold rating. No more balls opened up after that, but there will be more later in the game.

Next, I headed over to Wonderland. As I accessed the episode board, Letta showed up with another magic wand from Yen Sid. So I headed off into the hedge maze for the first action quest.

A hedge maze action quest in the Alice in Wonderland world of Disney Magical World 2.I completed the first three episodes, including one where Alice asked me to find her a flamingo mallet. She said they’re good for hitting balls…and not the dancing kind.

Alice: There are perfectly good mallets, real ones, made for hitting balls.
Um…

She wanted to play croquet with the queen, of course.

When I returned to Castleton, Letta showed up and gave me a letter from Rapunzel. She invited me to another ball at the castle. As soon as Letta flew away, she immediately returned! She also had an invitation for a ball from Anna and Elsa. But I will save those balls for another day.

At Three Little Pigs Renovations, I had the piggies replace the door of my house. It was only 500 coins, after all. That earned me the Piggy Paint Job sticker.

You got a sticker! Piggy Paint Job.
Now no wolves can huff and puff their way in, right?

Another blog entry, another crash to report. The game crashed on me while working on my farm in 100 Acre Wood tonight. I didn’t lose any progress this time, but you have to wonder why a better job wasn’t done cleaning up the errors before the game was published. These crashes are happening far too often.

I finished up my night with three episodes in the Snow White world. One involved nothing more than handing over an item I already had, one involved making an item at Daisy’s boutique, and the other just required catching one fish. They were quick and easy.

The Little Mermaid World

I arrived in Atlantica, which is the world based on The Little Mermaid. The outfit from Yen Sid will turn you into a merman or mermaid. I got no legs!

Something fishy is going on!

I used the episode board to begin the first action quest. It takes place underwater of course, as does everything in this world. But here, I can use my magic wand to trap ghosts in bubbles by pressing the Y button. I really like the scenery down here under the sea.

Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter. ♪

Once I reached the boss ghost’s room, I met up with Ariel (the Little Mermaid herself) and Flounder. I still don’t understand how his head is so much bigger than hers. 😛

Ariel:Oh! Who's this?
Jeff: Very Good Swimmer?

I reminded Ariel that she’s missing rehearsal, and she said that Sebastian is going to be steamed. Haha, I hope that’s a reference to the scene in the movie where Sebastian almost gets cooked. 😉

Ariel: Sebastian is going to be steamed, all right.

I’ve now cleared the first five episodes in this world. At one point, Ariel showed me all the human items she’s stashed away from various shipwrecks.

Ariel: Look at all this human stuff! Isn't it neat?
Wouldn’t you think your collection’s complete?

After hosting a Frozen themed party at my cafe back in Castleton, I completed a Frozen puzzle. That allowed me to go on a Frozen themed magic dream! I began by flying by a frosty ice castle.

Elsa told me to “keep cool” as she froze me into an ice crystal.

THIS is your idea of fun? I’d rather build a snowman.

Anna’s activity was much more enjoyable: We got to go down an ice slide!

This is more like it! But I can’t feel my butt.

And with Olaf’s help, I was able to change the music here to “Let it Go.” After that, I woke up from my dream. The dreams are somewhat enjoyable for a minute or two–it’s cool to see what activities are available. But after that, there’s not much else to do unless you want to repeat the activities over and over. Still, they are an entertaining little bonus.

One other thing I touched on before is the friendship medals. I never had a proper follow-up, so I’ll talk about it now. When you speak to Bella and invite guests, five random player characters (from the internet) will appear in your town (even though it doesn’t show them arriving by hot air balloon).

Your profile is also uploaded so your character can appear in someone elsa else’s town. You earn five medals just for inviting the guests, so you do not have to get StreetPass hits to earn the medals. That is a good thing.

New areas of the game keep opening up before I’m ready for them. The white rabbit and Alice appeared, and they activated the gate to Wonderland.

White Rabbit: Oh, my goodness! I'm late! I'm late!Not only that, but Letta appeared with an invitation to the ball. I’ll look into Wonderland and the ball next time.

Just to update you on my status, I currently have 57 stickers, and my item collection is 19.34% complete. See you soon!

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

In the Frozen world, I went on an action quest where I had to risk my life…for chocolate!

Quest Start! Get back Anna's chocolate!

I later had to risk my life to find some sticks to use as arms for a snowman! These ice witches send me into danger for the stupidest things!

Quest Start! Search for a branch to use as the snowman's arms!

Near the castle, I saw a building I could have unlocked quite a while ago, but didn’t. It’s Miss Teri’s Shop of Wonder. Here, you can exchange nice points for good luck charms or mystery items like improved fishing rods and new recipes for food, clothes, and furniture!

Miss Teri: Are you the kind of person who believes in that which you cannot see?

I went on a shopping spree, buying up as much as I could. I earned a new sticker for buying a mystery item. I’m also close to earning another for buying 30 recipes from her.

As soon as I left Miss Teri’s shop, Letta appeared and said that Miss Teri was looking for me. So Letta put me right back inside the Shop of Wonder! Miss Teri told me that twinkle stones can create puzzle pieces, and she started me off by giving me some red twinkle stones. I was able to use her new twinkle stone option to exchange them for a random puzzle piece.

As I left her shop, a new world opened up! It’s based on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs! After barging into the dwarfs’ house, they kicked me out because they were too hungry to focus on anything else. The episode board in this world then became available to me.

The seven dwarfs walk by.

The first episode just involved a lot of button-pressing as I just watched a long, boring conversation. Each dwarf would tell the next one to cook food, and on down the line, until they finally told me to do it. So I had to get a stew going.

The second episode involved me cleaning their house. By pressing the A button at sparkling locations around the house, I would pick up the piles of dust and clean the house. Once I was done, Snow White and the prince showed up.

In the third episode, I went mining with the dwarfs. The object is to swing your pickaxe in the same rhythm as the dwarf you’re with. This is how you earn twinkle stones.

Letta then appeared and gave me another letter from Yen Sid. He sent me an outfit that will turn me into a merperson. This will allow to enter the underwater world of Atlantica. But I’ll cover that in the next entry.

Back in Castleton, I unlocked a stand for Three Little Pigs Renovations. They can remodel the outside of your home by replacing your walls, roof, door, or mailbox.

Note: My game has crashed for a third time the other night, once again while working in the cafe. Three crashes in such a relatively short period of time is really a lot. I expect better from a Nintendo published game, to be honest.

That’s all for now, but I’ll see you next time as I head off to the wet world of Atlantica.
