Are you one of the lucky ones who was able to scoff up one of those rare MagicMeets tickets?
If so then you are probably a bit excited this week because MagicMeets is practically here.
By the time you get to read this I am probably already in Harrisburg (or almost there) and preparing for a wonderful weekend of Disney Magic with many of my friends.
I'm even more excited this year because for the first time we are presenting MagicTunes.
What is MagicTunes?
MagicTunes is new to MagicMeets 2008 and offers MagicMeets guests the opportunity to display their knowledge of Disney sound bites.
When we talk of Disney sound bites we refer to the sounds of Disney heard on television, film, and in the theme parks.
MagicTunes is fun, competitive, entertaining, and sure to be a staple for every MagicMeets.
Based on the long running television game show “Name that Tune” MagicTunes is played almost the same way.
Everyone who attends MagicTunes will have a chance to play.
In fact 12 lucky guests will be chosen as MagicTunes contestants for the Saturday session of MagicTunes.
If you are one of the lucky 12 guests to be chosen to play MagicTunes come to the front of the room and take a seat in the first row. The sooner our contestants are seated the sooner we can get started with MagicTunes.
How do you play MagicTunes?
MagicTunes involves several rounds of play.
The first round will see the 12 contestants (3 sets of 4) vying to reach the next or Playoff Round and here's how it's done:
Four (4) players will take their positions around the MagicTunes-Omatic. The MagicTunes-Omatic is a special device that has four (4) buttons. Each contestant will have his/her own button which they need to press/hit ahead of their competition to be able to first give an answer to the MagicTunes question. The answer we are looking for is the identification of the Disney sound bite just played.
The answer must be the name of an attraction, movie, or television show....although if it's the title of a song...that counts too.
There will be a preliminary round, Playoff Round, Semi-Final Round, and Championship Round.
Are You Ready for MAGICTUNES?!?!?!?!?!?
On Friday night we will have a special edition of MagicTunes. Our celebs will actually be doing us all a favor.
Besides testing their Disney sound bite knowledge, our celebrities, Annette Owens, Deb Wills, Lou Mongello, and Steve Barrett will also be helping everyone to see how MagicTunes is played.
Celebrity MagicTunes is open to all MagicMeets attendees.
There is a $5 minimum donation at the door. All proceeds will be donated to both Deb Wills' Avon Walk Against Breast Cancer and Lou Mongello's Dream Team.
Yours truly will be the Master of Ceremony for both MagicTunes sessions.
Oh Yeah...before I forget.
On Sunday morning I'll be presenting everything I know about the three parties held at WDW's Magic Kingdom. If you have never been to any of the three...Mickey's Pirate and Princess Party, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party...then you may want to sit in and listen to our discussion.
Don'tt forget to check in with Blog Central all weekend as we'll be blogging from MagicMeets.
Harrisburg here I come...uhhh...here I am!
