I admit it ... I love Foursquare. I have been "playing" for a while, and have amassed such fabulous badges as "I'm On A Boat!"
However, I must say that I'm intrigued by Disney's partnership with Gowalla. They have several "trips" outlined; including one for kids not tall enough for "The Mountains" at Magic Kingdom. I think it'll be a fun distraction and a fun project to do while in the parks. Granted, I'm a Liner, so I'm already furiously tappity-tappity-tapping on my phone while visiting. But this really seems like a good thing to try. And of course, they have park-specific "pins" to earn by checking in at different places! Fun!
As I'm an Android user, Gowalla wasn't available for my preferred platform until very recently. I have just installed and downloaded it to my precious (aka my Droid), and will give it a whirl this weekend. Add me as a friend ... connect with me by clicking here.
I'm off to visit with some of my Second Wives Cafe friends (and by "some", I mean "at least ten"). We're going to Foxwoods Casino to play bingo, and we plan to catch up with each other. We haven't been together for a year and change, and there's much to celebrate (new boyfriends, new husbands, new jobs, and even Heather's pregnancy). I can't wait to see my friends.
Have a wonderful and magical weekend!
