While at Magic Kingdom be sure to check out the Sorcerers of Magic Kingdom game. In this fun interactive adventure, park guests can help Merlin (the magician from Sword in the Stone) defeat popular Disney villains that are up to no good while cruising around the park.
You will need to begin your adventure on Main Street in the Firehouse (on the left as you enter the park). Once inside, you will present your MagicBand (or park ticket) to get everything you will need to go on your adventure. You will be given Merlin’s mystical map, spell cards and go through training on how to unlock the Magic Portals in the park and defeat the dastardly evildoers.
I would suggest getting all members of your party the set of playing cards even if you aren’t planning to play. Each set has random cards, so if you are interested in collecting the cards, you have a better chance of getting different ones with multiple packs.
You will get to choose between 4 different lands (Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland and along Main Street, U.S.A.) to start your adventure. Choose which ever land is most convenient for what you plan to do for the day as each land adventure can take around 30 minutes to complete. The goal is to defeat all the villains in Magic Kingdom. This does not have to be done all in one visit. Your game play will be recorded on your MagicBand and as long as you play within a set amount of time (I believe this is one year), your game will be saved so you can pick up where you left off.
The Sorcerers of Magic Kingdom is really a neat interactive experience, but can be confusing if you don’t follow the directions and constantly refer back to your map. Be prepared for a great deal of walking and searching for the spots marked with the Sorcerers of Magic Kingdom Logo. Once you find your destination, simply place your MagicBand on the lock found near the site and wait for Merlin to appear with special instructions on where to go next.
Part of what I enjoyed most about this interactive experience is that it takes you to spots you might not otherwise have noticed or made time to visit. One of my favorites locations to play Sorcerers of Magic Kingdom was in the Main Street Cinema Art of Disney on Main Street USA. A painting actually comes to life!
Sorcerers of Magic Kingdom Tip: You can get a FREE set of Spell cards each time you go to Magic Kingdom. I suggest getting this Ultra Pro PRO-Binder to carry your cards in so that they don’t get damaged.
