Anyone get anything decent out of the free Alice chest today? I got the bench and my sis got a flower statue. Boo.
I got the Alice attraction. I didn't have high expectations since I am only missing Queen of Hearts for the characters, so I was pleasantly surprised. I will be passing on The Bride. 100 gems for a 1.5% chance of getting her is much too risky for me. I have plenty of other characters I am missing, so it isn't as if it would complete things for me.

Well, I have opened two sapphire chests (one was a 100-gem gamble and the other was the milestone reward for the lunch boxes). One was a lamp post, the other was a Herculade Stand, so I will officially give up on trying to get the Bride this year!

    Any long term player besides me considering removing all the junk I have in the first area by California Screaming for extra magic, etc. I for one am tired of it taking up space.
    I've cleared out my entire park except for the attractions that are required for wishes and the ones needed for tokens. Everything else is gone.

    I paid 300 gems and got nothing but an ear stand. Really wanted the Bride and so my better judgment didn’t win. I’m a schmuck.

    Yeah, I was planning on on buying a few Sapphire chests until I saw it was a 5% chance of getting the bride for 100 gems per. Seriously both the cost and % chances are a joke. That said if it makes you feel any better I still thought seriously about buying 1 or 2 chests. 😂

    I was lucky to get Gaston from the free Sapphire from the Tapper event going, but I would have preferred Constance but at least I got something besides a lamp or bench. Not sure I will buy any sapphire chests for gems though. I missed Gaston and Scar and Cheshire Cat some how along the way and they are also in the Sapphire chest. Constance would be more desired!

    A neat but unimportant discovery of unlocking the new land is characters & wish kids will now path behind Big Thunder Mountain on the way to tasks.

    Also, you’re over estimating the drop chance on the sapphire chests. There’s a 60% chance of even getting a Special Chance or not and THEN another drop chance for what you receive from that special chance. So a 5% listed drop chance on The Bride is actually a 3% chance.

    I actually tried to send a customer support ticket regarding wishes. As someone else mentioned a little while back, literally every character wish I've had is for some already busy with a task. It's getting old. Then I couldn't put the ticket through because of a "captcha error". Tried three times. There isn't anything remotely related to captcha on the form.

    That was me. It seems to have gotten better, but still seems to do it more than it use to. While I’m not a big fan of the 75 character limit, I will give them credit for implementing the character counter letting us k ow how many are out!

    Anyone else having issues with Alice collecting wacky chests? The 10 second collection time is nice, but she rarely lets me collect it. I usually have to restart the game to get it.

    I think the issue is that it takes her much longer to travel to the lunch box than the 10 seconds the task takes to complete. That's been my experience anyway.

    Concession stand for me in the AIW milestone chest. Better than a bench I guess.

    Yes, if you watch Alice, she's very slow getting around. It won't let you collect until she reaches the lunch box.

    What’s to report for wish task assigned to busy characters? While it’s never been stated officially, almost every observation indicates the game prioritizes wish request to busy character. It’s a task management game. Decide who you think can be reallocated from whatever you have them doing to grant a wish.

    Alice’s foot speed has DEFINITELY been nerfed to draw out the task length. Also, look around her on the map before you just tap “collect” because the game may assign her to a lunch box other than the closest one to her and you’re better off selecting a specific chest to send her to.

    And to highlight the awful nature of sapphire chests, I ended up with a Special Chance on my milestone chest... it gave me elixir. Joy.

    Maybe they’ve prioritize requests to busy characters but never to this degree. I’ve definitely noticed that it’s almost exclusively busy characters since the update and I’d say pre-update mine was at most 50 kingdom / 50 home. Right now I currently have 4 requests for Goofy and I don’t think I’ve ever had 4 requests for 1 character before? Don’t even remember having 3 before, but am sure that’s happened.

    Definitely realized Alice’s speed has been nerfed. That said, I’ve had 1 or 2 occasions that I left/returned 20-30 minutes later and she still wasn’t done. Maybe they game basically paused her when I left? Either way, not a big del since a force quit/relaunch always fixes it.

    I got White Rabbit's House out of it. But I have no Alice in Wonderland characters, so this event is a slow slog.

    All my Hercules characters are now level 9, and only Hades still needs tokens to go to level 10. (Finally!)

    Welcomed my 75th character into my kingdom earlier this week (Mother Gothel). I've got some good candidates for putting away for the moment, but I was hurting for magic before the limit, and I admittedly was looking forward to having extra characters to help mitigate that.

    I'm sure Gaston's odds were better than the Bride's, though.

    I seem to recall her slow plodding in previous lunchbox events. Although it's been a while since we got the Alice in Wonderland characters, wasn't she even running slowly back then too?

    Busy weekend, but finally got my sapphire chest and ended up with the herculade stand. I will be tempted to get one with gems, if I have any left after the premium character purchase, but reading about everyone's disappointment helps keep my resistance strong.
