Apprentices wanted at Walt Disney World! Did you know that there is an interactive game included with your park admission to Magic Kingdom? Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an interactive trading card adventure that kids of all ages will love that involves battling various Disney villains throughout Magic Kingdom’s themed lands (except Tomorrowland) using special spell cards.
To get started, guests need to check-in at the Main Street Firehouse, where you are given a specialized park map pointing out the various locations of the game, along with a Sorcerer Key card that activates the game screens and keeps track of your progress in the game, and a set of Spell Cards.
The main play areas are Magic Portals located throughout Magic Kingdom. Merlin opens up the portal and allows you to interact with the characters and defend Magic Kingdom park from an army of Disney villains To activate the magic portal, a guest scans their key card at a keyhole which activates the Magic Portal screen. The spell cards hold various attacks of differing strengths used to fight the Disney villains. The game can be played in 15 to 20 minute segments throughout your day at the Magic Kingdom, or you can continuously play for up to 2-3 hours.
You can get more cards every time you visit the Magic Kingdom and trade your duplicates with other guests. However, there are some special cards only given out during the Halloween and Christmas parties. Additional booster packs of seven cards, one board game, and tokens can be purchased for $11.95 at various retail outlets throughout Walt Disney World for playing in the park or if your family wants to continue the fun once they return home.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is just another fun “extra” that Disney provides for its guests. It’s a fun and interactive game for all ages, but at our house its a favorite for those who have read the Kingdom Keeper series of books.
