|I think this is a great idea, but $5.99 is a bit pricey for an app you have to do at the park, and only the park. It's the same concept as Geocachings "Whereigo" program for GPS', or virtual geocaches.... Good luck with it :)|

|The fact that the app appeals to such a tiny market--people at Disneyland, and nowhere else--is in fact what necessitates the higher price!|
1) Short of buying a bottle of water--and only a bottle of water--it's the cheapest thing you can do at Disneyland.
2) If the game is fun, $5.99 is a steal. If it's not fun, it's a rip-off at any price.
Fortunately, those that have played it seem to really enjoy themselves, so it's going okay so far.
I hope you try it out next time you visit!

|Correction: when I mentioned the "bottle of water, and only a bottle of water", what I really meant was that single food items--water, churro, etc.--are just about the only thing less than $5.99. (Buy more than one item, and you've blown past it!)|

|Yes but you have to pay admission to get in and all the attractions don't cost anything...|

|True, attractions are free. (But you do have to wait in line, which you don't have to do with Wishing Stars!) And coincidentally, Wishing Stars might make waiting in lines a little more fun since some of the quests are designed to be played in-queue.|
I'm sensitive to the pricing issue, and if there's a way to make the app pay for itself and charge less for it, of course I'll do it.

|This app is such a cool idea. Incorporating the park with a game that is good for the whole family makes experiencing the park that much more exciting. |
Now, the only thing is that I have a Blackberry...so...
