    Can someone explain the Mickey meet? If I see a kid looking to meet Woody I click his bubble and if Woody is not busy I can select the 60 second task to pull his string. With Mickey when I pick a task the same way Mickey goes off and does the task but the kids don't get to meet him and increase the happiness. What task do you pick for Mickey to have the kids gather around and become happy?

    You have to pick a task that has the Smiley face on it. It is usually the first task offered. Mickey's is a long one most of the time as you level him up.

    Loving the game. My one "tip" is to start long tasks before you go to bed at night. That way your 8 hour task will finish through out the night and you can pick up the next day with out having to wait. I wish they wouldn't have things over 2 hours simply because this is a game that is tailored towards kids and to speed anything up you have to use jewels and jewels cost real money. The only thing I bought was the Pluto package simply because you had to buy him anyways.

    Can someone explain to me what the SOCIAL button does? The names at the bottom of the screen are not all friends with me on Facebook and I am not really what it does when I click on their names??

    Most of the names when you first start are Fake Disney accounts. You will most likely see a username if it is a friend (from FB or from the devices game network). You get to choose 3 check marks from each "friend" which awards you magic.

    So what level is everyone at? I really feel like I'm not getting the concept of this as I seem to be moving so slow! LOL! I do open up the app at night and make sure that everyone is on the long 6+ hour tasks for the overnight shift, but I can't seem to balance having all the characters meet everyone that wants to meet them AND still get them to shorter tasks throughout the day (4 hours and below). I am also struggling with getting Pluto and Bo Peep (not enough magic!!)

    Oh and I am level 11 but I only have 3 gems and 1300 magic.

    my biggest tip is when tapping on an attracting/concession be sure to only tap once!! =_= I've lost like 10 gems because I tapped twice and guess what's right under my finger after the first tap? The "use gems to finish this task" button.

    I've noticed when you visit other people's parks, the amount of magic you receive varies depending on which object you select. It seems like more "expensive" attractions and characters give you more magic.

    I got burned on this for 50 gems. The use gems button is obviously placed to get you to use it by accident so you'll have to buy more. Not happy about this feature. There should be a "are you sure?" button first since kids are expected to be playing this.

    What does it mean to defeat Pete and the Evil Emperor Zurg? How do you defeat them? I want to unlock more characters!

    I think you have to do all of Goofy's tasks and all of Woody's. So you have to unlock the other ones also needed like Bo Peep, Ham, Soldier etc to be able to finish all that. Basically a lot of time or some real money.

    What do the parades do? I've sent 4 around and have not noticed any type of difference in anything, I could be wrong though. TIA!

    ETA: I know you get the things they say you get when the parade is over, but I thought it had something to do with crowd happiness?

    Yes, more help with the parades would be appreciated. I tried to assign 2 floats because a hint says more floats = better, but it wouldn't let me assign more than one. How do you do 2?

    Yup, I can't assign more than one as well but the other thing I wanted to ask is if anyone has been able to watch advertisements for more gems? It keeps telling me to do it (when in the parade screen), but when I click on it to watch them, it tells me that I have no more videos at this time....BUT I have never even been able to watch one.
