I know WP8 now has a wallet with a PIN and all, but $99 purchases on games directed at kids is kind of wrong...

Indeed it is. It was mentioned in the article you know. But of course commenting without reading would have prompted you to ask this obvious fact.

Glad Disney is showing the Microsoft platforms such great support. But who in their right mind would spend $100 on a single in-app purchase?!

This is obviously aimed at kids whose parents haven't bothered to put a pin code on their phone and account wallet. I avoid all free to play games for this reason.

Love that Disney is supporting the platforms with all these games. Hopefully that means they'll be porting their My Disney Experience app soon.

You can say that again!!! granted Pete from The DIS podcast team said using MDE on the mobile WP browser worked better then the MDE app on his Android and IPhone (he's got a bunch of tech it sounded like in one of the podcasts, lol!)

Just emailed them a request for the WP experience app.  The more that ask the more likely we are to get one!

A word of warning about Disney games on Windows platforms. While it is great that they are showing some support for Windows, after the initial release they will ignore the platform. Case in point is Star Wars Assault Team. They have been adding new content to iOS and Android for the last couple weeks. New time limited special missions. New limited time hero crates. Reducing energy costs for missions. And many other additions and improvements. NONE of this has been done for Windows devices. I have also read that the Finding Nemo game is treated in the same way. When they are asked about why there have been no updates to Windows the answer is that different OS's are updated in different ways. While this is true, they have pushed out changes to the game on Windows devices without the need to download and install an update. Even if they have to use updates to push out this new content, why not just update the app? I would rather download and install updates once a week then get no updates at all.
