“Saw This Comin’!” for The Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

In an announcement we have been expecting for a long time, Disney’s Virtual Magic Kingdom online game is finally shutting down forever next month. As stated on the VMK website, the game was only meant to run throughout the Happiest Celebration on Earth in 2005-06 and has lasted well beyond that. The Virtual Magic Kingdom did make it to the real-life Magic Kingdom during that time, gaining space over in the Main Street Cinema at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom from early 2005 until the Fall of 2007.

The game will open for one final day of operation on May 21, 2008 before becoming the first virtual member of Yesterland.
