We had a blast last month at our 5th Reunion. The Downtown Disney AMC was the perfect venue for our main event–the theater was packed with FROZEN fans who had beautiful voices. Thank you to those who bought tickets to the main event, contributed to our Raffle, and to those who purchased Raffle tickets. You can see our Raffle thank you post here
. Check out the Reunion Recap page
to relive the memories. Special thanks to the Hojo Anaheim
and La Brea Bakery

At the Reunion we played the world premiere trailer to Deadliest Cast Member Season TWO on the Downtown Disney AMC big screen. Follow Deadliest Cast Member on Facebook for updates regarding the upcoming release. We also debuted our long awaited Goat Effect game for iOS. Grab it in the App Store here and connect to Game Center to see where you rank. We’ll have a Goat Effect tournament next month.
Last week we upgraded the Lounge making it load much faster on both the mobile and web versions. It uses far less data than before, and loads at least 50% faster based on our in-house tests. This should make it easier to use in the Parks.
