    I think it's terrible anytime anyone protests outside of Disneyland for any reason. It's really scary to kids. They are only thinking of themselves and not the paying guests to the Disneyland Resort. They can protest elsewhere, but they shouldn't be allowed to protest in front of Disneyland period.

      As long as they're not on Disney's property and the City of Anaheim has granted them permission to assemble and protest on public property, they're allowed.

      I think there are far worse things in the world to protest than the closure of an online game, but more power to them I guess. :botox:

        I realize the game was pretty popular, but they never said it would be around forever...especially for free. I think they should have charged for it and had it on more reliable servers. At any rate disney has the right to shut it down if they want to.....I'm not sure what protesting is going to accomplish. Maybe they will keep it open for a fee...that's what I wold do..

          I understand they are allowed to, but I don't think they should. It's selfish. Think of other people and especially the kids that get frightened by large groups of people holding signs, yelling and shouting.

            Note, they are staying off of Disney property, but will be at the "border" of both the Timon and Mickey & Friends Parking entrances, on public sidewalks.

            The group has gone thru the proper legal processes and obtained the permits need from the city. They have a right to get their voices heard, just like any other group.

              Legal or not, it's still in poor taste. Just my opinion.

                  As a vmk player, I just want to say.....these people need to get over it. It was a fun, free game with no promises of eternity. If some people put this much focus and energy into things that actually mattered like poverty, homelessness, disease, war, intolerance...the world would probably be in a lot better shape. The amount of time people will waste on this protest is absurd.

                    There will probably be a handful of people who will show up at this protest, (like 5) and that will be the end of that.

                    I don't see how protesting outside of Disneyland is going to change anything.

                      Aren't there more important things they can be protesting?

                      Plus, the protest should be at Disney corporate who made this decision, not at Disneyland.

                        Why not Disneyland.

                        The game was based on a Virtual version of the park, so isn't it appropriate to protest the closure at the "real" version?

                        And of course, the Media will cover the event in front of Disneyland more than they would if they did it at Burbank.

                          Wow, that's only slightly dramatic. They want to ask Disney if it is their intent to "destroy the dreams of a million kids around the world?" Who wrote this for them?

                          One million kids need to find a new hobby, that's all I can come up with on this one. While I can appreciate the idea that they want to rally around a cause, I'm not sure this is rally-worthy.

                          ETA: Yes, I realize that rally-worthiness is in the eye of the beholder.

                            I think they probably should have done this a little bit earlier.

                            It's May already people, they are probably ready to shut it down at any rate now.

                            And, I understand that VMK is really fun, but I think there is better things to protest for than a virtual game. o_O

                              I've been on VMK since day one, but they don't see me complaining. It seems unethical to protest over a virtual game that closes 16 days from now. I say they admit defeat and go home to enjoy the time they have left, not waste it by protesting.

                              And like someone said earlier, if people put as much time into things that matter and actually affect people as they do for this Save VMK movement, who knows what they could accomplish.

                              A better question though, where's the protest over changes to Small World?
