Jibe With Us On MousePlanet LIVE! Fun at Home

It's the half-year anniversary for our MousePlanet LIVE! "Fun at Home" Show! That's 26 consecutive weeks of shows about all things Disney.

This week, we will provide the latest Disney Parks news on "Fun at Home" Show #26, the MousePlanet LIVE! Stream that starts at 8:30 p.m. Eastern/5:30 Pacific tonight, Wednesday, September 30. As you have probably seen or heard by now, mass layoffs are coming to the Disney Parks, Experiences & Products division of The Walt Disney Company because of the on-going global pandemic, and we'll chat a little about that and any other recent Disney news.

But, as you know, we stream mainly to provide distraction and fun at home, so, as advertised—since it's our half-year anniversary of being here for you—our Jibe Time game includes a special opportunity during the live show to win a copy of the new book The Disney Monorail: Imagineering a Highway in the Sky by Jeff Kurtii, Vanessa Hunt, and Paul Wolski! All of our game players, including the viewers at home in the U.S.A. that play during our live stream, have a chance of winning. The full game rules are below. By playing the game, you agree to the rules.

This week, our still-reigning champion, Shelley Caran from On the Go in MCO, will take on her latest challenger, MousePlanet contributor Marie Rossiter. Remember, in each round of our Jibe Time game, our two players try to have their answers to our original, rather hypothetical, fill-in-the-blank questions relating to Disney subjects jibe with the answers of our panelists consisting of our MousePlanet regulars and special guests, and those of you having fun at home on our social media streaming platforms.

Your browser may require that you reload the page at show time. To participate and provide answers in comments during the live show, you need view the show on YouTube, Facebook or Periscope/Twitter where you need to be logged in to an account. You can also replay the show here after it has concluded.

That's right, your answers during the LIVE show help the players score points, too! Type your answers in the comments on Facebook or Twitter/Periscope, or YouTube (along with the question number you are answering), and see them shown on all our streaming platforms! If your answers jibe with a player, that player gets a point that counts in the score, and we even sometimes like to award points to those who comment! Our points and usual game prizes, unfortunately, have no retail value, but there are bragging rights!

This week, we have one designated Contest Question in the mix where our Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix has pre-recorded an answer that we will share after regular game play. Anyone who provides an answer that jibes with her recorded answer during the designated time on our LIVE stream (and meets our other eligibility requirements below) is eligible to win the book! If no one jibes with Adrienne's answer, we will randomly select a winner from among everyone that provided any answer to our designated Contest Question.

Due to scheduling issues, rather than tonight, Jeffrey R. Epstein, Director, Corporate Communications at The Walt Disney Company will join us to chat next week on Show #27, October 7. He was previously a guest back on Show #5. This summer, we reported the news he shared that he was undergoing colon cancer surgery following a routine screening colonoscopy. We are happy to report that he Tweeted earlier this month that his surgery went well, and that pathology found "no residual cancer and the lymph nodes were clear." We look forward to welcoming him back to the show next week!

Jibe Time Game Show Rules For the Contest Question

To celebrate six months of the weekly MousePlanet LIVE! Fun at Home Show, on September 30, at some point during the live stream of Show #26 that starts at 8:30 p.m. Eastern/5:30 p.m. Pacific, someone will win a copy of the new book, "The Disney Monorail: Imagineering a Highway in the Sky" by Jeff Kurtii, Vanessa Hunt and Paul Wolski. This is a stunning book every Monorail fan needs on their shelf.

The easiest way to win the book: play our Jibe Time game during the show and be the only one that jibes with Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix's pre-recorded answer to our special Contest Question. Of course, there are some complicating factors (and rules of our Contest) to be aware of.

Since Show #19, we have been playing our Jibe Time game on each episode only for bragging rights. In Jibe Time, two players compete to have their answers jibe with as many panelists and viewers participating in the comments. We ask original, rather hypothetical, Disney-related fill-in-the-blanks questions with no "right" answers.

For Show #26, we have designated one of the questions our "Contest Question" and Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix has pre-recorded her answer to it that is known only also to our show host, Alan Dalinka. Everyone who jibes with Adrienne's answer has a chance to win—if there are multiple jibing answers, the winner will be selected by the random number generator feature of Siri with the jibing players numbered consecutively in the order we revealed them during the show; if no one jibes with Adrienne's answer, the random number generator feature of Siri will be used to select from all that participated in responding to the Contest Question.

If the Contest Question is asked because its number is selected by one of our players, regular game play will continue as usual without any indication that the Contest Question has been asked. Our players, panelists, and those viewing on our streaming platforms shall respond as usual; those viewers responding in the comments must include the Question number with each answer. In other words, to encourage everyone to play through all of the rounds of this week's Jibe Time game, we will not reveal which question is the Contest Question and reveal Adrienne's answer until a Jibe Time Champion with bragging rights has been declared (after four rounds of two questions per round or about an hour of game play, at the show host's sole discretion). If the Contest Question is not selected during regular game play, the show host will say so, and will initiate an additional round of the game with the Contest Question for all players and viewers, and will set a time of no more than three minutes for social media participants to provide responses in the comments.
