I agree and disagree with this comment. McD's is indeed a fattening and unhealthy source of food, but i believe the creator of this idea said McDonald's simply because it is the most famous fast food place of all of them. I mean, i've seen way more McDonald's commercials then Wendy's or Arby's.

I generally don't agree. First off: Happy Meal Box Wands. Second: Well, this just doesn't seem right. Wizard101 promoting billion-callorie meals? No thanks.

Sorry, I disagree.

Who said anything about rare? It could be something like gold or just one crown.

Like wands? Maybe every week they give out a part of a basic wand that comes together to form a wand. I saw 2 weeks a wand for 5 wands.

You can disagree and I will be off with the agreers partying if we can get McDonald's to do so. I don't know how much these codes would give. Certainly not rare Items. Common pets, a little gold, a crown(1 or 2 tops for crowns), a holiday themed housing item, maybe if your lucky.

I agree. They should hold a fitness activity, or hold something at child awareness thing. Like, if Subway held a "Run for the Spiral" or something like that. It could be a weekly camp that has prizes which are Wizard/Pirate101 themed. The way this kind of thing could work is that they could hold activities that limit a certain amount (kinda like waiting in line to play a game(s) at an arcade or something) of children. With participation and winners, participants could be awarded "Crowns" that work on an event-special points card. This method could work by having an ATM sort of thing that grants or takes points (grants points for event participation; takes points for when you buy something). The bottom of the prize(s) rank could be a code for maximum potion or something like that. The top of the ranks could be limited edition bundle (like the game cards), but with a whole bunch of stuff. It would take a lot of points to get that! When the entire event is over (which could last a week, or a period of days), all of the remaining Crowns go to your KingsIsle accounts, but you only get half. Like, let's say a kid got 40,000 crowns. He buys stuff with the crowns. He has 10,000 left. 5,000 will go to his KingsIsle account, and the other half goes to KI, or wherever Crowns go. You get emailed the code for whatever you bought with the Crowns.For an awareness thing, KI can participate at restaurants with a Charity Donation thing. You get this card that grants you stuff for every donation of a certain amount of money or higher. The card has twenty-five Crown Signs. You give the person by the donations thing your email, so (s)he can email you a code for a promotional item on a KingsIsle game. He/She will ask what game you want it for (Note: can't pick both). When you get all the signs scratched off, you get an awesome prize. Then, you start on another one that has fifty crown signs. Some signs grant you Crowns (e.g. Crown Sign number 20 out of 50 gives 3000 Crowns or a month of membership; the person will ask you whether you want crowns or membership). If you chose membership, the person will then ask what game you want it for. At fifty, you get a Companion/house/pet/weapon/etc for Pirate101 (a very awesome, limited edition, powerful, and unique item) or a weapon/pet/house/etc. for Wizard101. That wouldn't be the end of your donations adventure! After you fill out the second card, you will be entered into a huge raffle for 100,000 crowns (or something very awesome) for the rest of the event! Like, you fill out the second card; you will get entered into the raffle every day until the event is over. The winner will be so happy.

Oh yeah to add to my other post, Ronald McDonald (or a magic crown from burger king or the star from carls or a green train from subway or the girl from wendys or apple from applebees etc) should come out on wizard101 and have him fight your wizard using attacks like burger bear or fries monster or hotdog snake or cookie monster (no not from sesame street or maybe if we could add him too) or magic voodoo of the magical cursed taco. Cool attacks for restuarants oh and forgot one for subway: magic green train that runs ya over ok the end

I'm sorry, but those of you thinking that this is advertising obesity, that kind of made me laugh. Okay, so from your information, if I were to buy a kids meal, I'd suddenly be fat? Well, I've never heard from ANYWHERE that a kids meal, which is like, what, a cheeseburger? I've never heard a kids meal making a kid fat, it's not like you're buying a huge 20 burger combo.

Also, to those of you that don't like KI advertising, well, guess what? There's already TV commercials and famous website advertisements.

My third point why this isn't a bad idea is because the parent still has the choice of bringing their child to McDonald's, it's not like the kid is going to run away from home just to get a code for a housing item. Really, think more before you post, this is a KIDS MEAL, not a big mac.

By the name of the Spiral, having that foul daemon supporting our game is blasphemy! And unless this unholy clown can be defeated to avenge the millions of victims he has fattened, he should not appear in this game! His presence would taint the Spiral more than Morganthe and Malistaire combined!

It doesn't have to be a rare item. It could be just an average item, or at least a collectable, without any power-ups and such.

Why? There are loads of reasons that some people said.

I do not eat at that place. I can tell that only a little boy or girl would get a happy meal.
Second, I think it would be a bad idea to sell that. Buying a happy meal just for a code would get people ... fat ...
There are more reasons to point out.

I had this idea of Mc Donalds sponsoring wizard101. For ever purchase of a Happy meal you get a random wizard101 code on the box. I thought a purchase of a happy meal would be a good idea since a lot of kids play this game.
I honestly think this is a GREAT idea. It's a really good promotional item that could get more people the play the game, and who would want to miss out on a awesome game like Wizard101? But maybe it could be a healthier fast food place, or well, at least a better sanatized one. I understand why you would want it to be there, because of happy meals and such, but maybe like Chick Fa La or just anything besides McDonalds.
And for the people who think that this will only lead people to obesity, it's a happy meal, and i'm POSTIVE parents wouldn't let their kids get more than one at a time, sure maybe the kid will wanna go there more, but it's not like he's gonna eat it constantly over and over, i'm sure parents wouldn't approve of that.

i think its a good and bad idea bad idea because lets say a forty year old man buys a happy meal just so he can post the code online and good because F Y I they are having to lower fat content because the first lady says so and also the kids would just have real fun playing with there lets say... cyclops or humungo frog

I agree with all the people that don't want to have the game sponsored by McDonalds. . . though many of us remember the days when a happy meal toy was a special treat once in a while - sadly that is no longer the connotation that fast food has for most of the population. I think that the more recent obesity awareness campaigns have branded nearly all fast food as poison and I think it would be a bad PR move for Wizards to associate themselves with all of that.

But really, 'Mc Donalds' getting paid by kingsisle to sponser their game? Not everyone even plays wizard101. Tons of problems to that. I, Well, I, why would KI do that?

Many of you are beside the point here. Whether you have bad or good opinions about Mc. Donald's isn't relevant. The purpose of this is whether or not this would be a good marketing angle for Wizard 101. I personally believe that it wouldn't be the greatest place to advertise, not because of Mc. Donald's, but rather because the game is rated E10+ and many of the people who buy kids meals at Mc. Donald's are below the age of 10.

I disagree with the idea, but it is a cool idea for people who like fast food. Thats a good idea its just it should be with a healthier resturant.
