There’s no doubt that you’ve heard all the rumours and the constant updates about the new interactive game, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. We wanted to wait till we could give you all the facts about this ambitious new addition to Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and now we can! The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a multi-sided attraction that includes, magic, Disney villains, spell casting, animation and card trading. The game, featuring more than 95 minutes of original animation, has been in development for more than four years. Using up to the minute technology to enhance the story telling of this magnificent adventure, you will become the opponent of the Disney villains that are trying to challenge Merlin the Magician and take over Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
Here’s exactly how it works...
With your Disney tickets admission you will need to head to Merlin’s Training Centre inside the Fire House on Main Street where you will become an apprentice sorcerer of Merlin. Here you will be given a map of mystic portals and five randomly selected spell cards from a total of seventy individual cards for your mission. Each card features a Disney character and a spell power that is associated with that particular character’s personality. For example Dumbo’s card features a pink elephant parade, Lumiere’s card features a candle blast and Mama Odie’s card features her magical charm.
The spell cards can be used across all four theme areas of Disney’s Magic Kingdom, inviting you to enter magical portals and protect the pieces of Merlin’s shattered crystal ball from the Disney villains that are trying to steal the pieces and take over the Magic Kingdom. As a sorcerer you will be expected to save Disney’s Magic Kingdom from the villains by casting the spells issued to you on your cards. You will also have the opportunity to trade cards with fellow sorcerers to gain new spells.
