Surprisingly The Ads Aren't Annoying

You can also gain coins by watching ads. The ads will appear several times but not affect the game process. You can choose to ignore them, but you may expect them sometimes when you need to unlock new characters. Watching a 30-second ad can get you 20 free coins - and it's much shorter than the time you spend collecting the coins.
It's not just a game, it hides story that only Disney fans can understand.
The 150 Disney characters are the most attractive part of this game. However, not all characters can be unlocked by collecting coins. Interestingly, there're about 40 roles that require speical skills to unlock. And these skills are hidden behind the Disney stories.
Here we introduce you three Disney backstories. They can help you understand the game better and unlock all the characters.
Mickey Mouse's original name was Mortimer
We are familiar with the name Mickey Mouse. But the character was originally called Mortimer until Walt Disney's Wife thought it was too feminine and changed it to Mickey.
Therefore, Mortimer is a hidden role in the game. When you use the Mickey role and run into Mortimer, the character will unlock.
Attila - the confectioner
Attila was a confectioner in the animated flim「Tangled」. Therefore in the「Tangled」scene, there will be speical game props - cake.
You will need 50 cakes when using Attila to unlock「Warthog」, and then another 50 to unlock「Captain of the Guard」when using Maximus.
Hiro Hamada and his 5 friends
In the animated film「Big Hero 6」, Hiro Hamada has five good friends - GoGo, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Fred, and Baymax.
Thus, the game set a rule that you can unlock the hidden role「Fred」 by reaching the achievement of 「Best Friend」. And before that, you'll need to unlock Hiro Hamada, GoGo, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and Baymax first.
Of course, there're many other stories behind the game. You can imagine the difficulty to know all the characters and their backstories to unlock all the levels.
But this is the reason that the Disney Crossy Road is so appealing.
