May 21, 2008 – The Online Game Virtual Magic Kingdom Officially Shuts Down

On May 21, 2008, the online multiplayer game Virtual Magic Kingdom officially shut down its services. A joint project between Walt Disney Parks and Resorts and Sulake Corporation, the game was created as a promotional tool to celebrate 50 years of Disney theme parks. The beta version of the game opened on May 23, 2005. Guests could create their own avatar and walk around themed lands similar to those found in Disneyland and Walt Disney World and play a variety of mini-games, such as Jungle Cruise Photo Safari, and a Pirates of the Caribbean-themed game of Capture the Flag. Guests were also able to complete special quests and collect display badges, pins, and clothes for their avatar.
