Disney Magical World: Goofy’s Medal

My last post on Disney Magical World had me with a full 8-combo Western-themed café surmising that you could get Goofy’s Medal from it. I didn’t get it on that attempt, so after growing a starfall radish I was able to throw another party.
This time Goofy, Mickey and Donald showed up dressed in cowboy attire. So cute!

Howdy Pardners!

After everyone got settled in, sure enough Goofy had the telltale exclamation point over his head stating that he had a medal to give me.
I took one more silly picture with everyone before closing up the party and running over to Yen Sid’s Castle.

I'm a crazy pink cowgirl. I thought I saw a scorpion!

The Goofy wand was the last one I needed. I still need another medal from Mickey to make the Director’s Chair and one from Minnie to make a hood.

Disney Magical World: Western Café

My theory is that the Goofy medal and therefore secret wand are obtained from holding a western-themed party. I held a tiny 2 combo western party a while ago and goofy was the one who showed up for the party. I’ve been trying very hard to get enough items to hold a full 8 combo western party for a while now, but the game doesn’t make it easy.

With most café sets you can make all of the items. The western set is tricky because you can’t make the table, chairs, or table ornament. I waited very patiently for the table and chairs to show up in the department store, but when I tried to set up my party I realized I didn’t have one cactus to put on a table so I had to wait—impatiently this time—for it to show up in the store. Today it did. And after growing a starfall radish I was ready to hold my first 8 combo party.

The only western item I don't have out is the clock because I ran out of money...

I expected to see Goofy again, but I was pleasantly surprised when Mickey and Donald appeared in western garb.




They didn’t have exclamation points over their heads (I didn’t expect them too) which means after I grow another Starfall Radish I’ll be hosting another western party. Hopefully I’ll be able to make the third version of the western outfit as well so I don’t look like Ma Kettle in a ball gown in the next photo I take. With any luck in a day or two I’ll be able to tell you if this is indeed how you get the Goofy Medal.

Disney Magical World : Secret Wands

There was one sticker in my Japanese copy of Disney Magical World (besides growing the legendary sunflower) that gave me fits: the secret wand sticker. As you progress through the magical dungeon you occasionally find recipes for wands in small chests. These wand recipes have vague names such as red secret wand recipe or blue secret wand recipe. When you turn them in to Yen Sid the name changes and you’ll find that you have a recipe for a Mickey Star Wand, or Donald Star wand etc.

The Donald Star Wand

The Donald Star Wand

All of these secret wands require a medal, such as the Donald Star Medal above, that is difficult to obtain. If you view the recipe the only thing the Medal says about its location is “Café”. That’s not very helpful. For the longest time I thought you just needed to hold a party a bunch of times with 8 combos and eventually the character would give you the medal. That’s only half right.

Let’s say you covet that Donald Star Wand. Here’s how you go about getting the medal for it. First off you are going to need 8 combos in your café. But not just any 8 combos. You need secret combos. As you progress through the game you may notice that you have two choices for Donald-themed wallpaper and floor. You can make the cheaper “Donald Wallpaper & Rug” or the hideously expensive “Marine Wallpaper & Rug”. I’m sorry to tell you that you need to purchase the hideously expensive set. Once you’re able to afford it and you decorate your café with it you’ll notice that to the right of the theme combo you’ll see explanation marks. Ta da! That’s a secret combo (if that’s your first secret combo, congratulations! You got a sticker!)

If you notice, the secret combo I described above is not the one pictured, good! As you level the café up and gain more recipes you’ll eventually receive two recipes for a theme. The most expensive of the two recipes is a secret combo. You have to make the expensive version of all three dishes to get the combo. In my Japanese game I tried for ages to get the wand just by having the secret food combo and not the secret furniture combo. I think you need both. Maybe I was just unlucky.

My rule of thumb for getting the medal for secret wands: if it has a more expensive version, buy it and put it in your café.

So, you’ve got expensive food and decor, now what? After you’ve gotten 8 combos with a couple of secret combos hold a party. When the character you want the medal from shows up with an exclamation point over their head, then you’ve got your medal! I should probably mention that you should make sure you have enough items to make the expensive food 3-4 times. And enough food to make whatever’s popular that day so you can raise your party bar quickly and try again with the theme of your choice. I got the Donald Medal with the second party I hosted. I got the Minnie Medal the first time I used both secret combos on my JP game, but I held a lot of parties before I wised up and changed the wallpaper.

This is what you're hoping to see.

I got a sticker! I hope now you can too! :)

Secret wands are fairly easy to get once you know what “Café” means, they just require a lot of money and a bit of farming. I want to get the Mickey Wand next. But I’ve found that I don’t have enough items to set on tables for the 8 combos. That’s a conundrum.

Good luck Medal hunting!

Disney Magical World: Birthstone Bubbles

I finally got all of the birthstone bubbles in Disney Magical World, but not without a bit of investigation. I was missing one for the longest time, but I didn’t know exactly which one or where to get it. Turns out it was the Sapphire bubbles. Now if only I could catch a really really big fish my fishing stickers would be complete!

Here is a list of all of the birthstone bubbles and where to get them. Happy Fishing!

Month Birthstone Bubble Location
January Garnet Bubbles Aladdin’s World (Well-made Rod)

March Aquamarine Bubbles Alice’s World (Well-made Rod)
April Diamond Bubbles Cinderella’s World
May Emerald Bubbles Alice’s World

Disney Magical World: Growing Hybrids

legendarysunflowerDid you know that some plants yield hybrid seeds in Disney Magical World? It’s not quite like in Animal Crossing where you have to put different plants next to each other to get different colors. In Disney Magical World certain plants can yield seeds for different plants. There’s no trick to it, it’s just a matter of luck. So if you can’t find an ingredient you’re looking for, maybe you have to grow it.

Hybrid Producing Plants

  • Creamy Chestnut Seed → Xtra-Creamy Chestnut Seed
  • Yellow Citrus Seed → Orange Citrus Seed
  • Barley Seed → Premium Barley Seed*
  • Butterynut Seed → Golden Butterynut Seed
  • Grace Lily Seed → Moonbeam Lily Seed
  • White Cocoaberry Seed → Mixed Cocoaberry Seed
  • Milkberry Seed → Crown Milkberry Seed → Royal Milkberry Seed
  • Sweetberry Seed → Premium Sweetberry Seed
  • Four-Leaf Clover Seed → Colorful Clover Seed*
  • Honey Carrot Seed → Spooky Carrot Seed
  • Big Turnip Seed → Mysterious Golden Seed*
  • Ruby Red Rose Seed → Bright White Rose Seed → Jet-Black Rose Seed → Royal Rose Seed* → Mysterious Flower Seed*

*Names may be incorrect. Translated from the Japanese game. Will change when I actually get them in my English game.
