Good News, Disney World Fans — Harry Potter World Isn't the Only Place You Can Do Spells!
Casting spells isn't just for aspiring wizards at Harry Potter World. Disney World fans can get in on the magical action with the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game. The premise of the interactive attraction — exclusive to the park's Magic Kingdom — is that Merlin is recruiting apprentice sorcerers (aka you!) to battle Disney villains (led by Hades) and "thwart the forces of evil." The game is a scavenger hunt to stop Hades as he attempts to collect four shards of Merlin's crystal in order to reassemble it. After taking down each Disney villain, players face off with Hades himself.
Park goers can sign up for the game at the Firehouse at Main Street, USA. Each player receives one map and pack of five spell cards for the day. According to Disney World, missions last from 20 to 30 minutes, and Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is included in your theme park admission! Here are some more details about how to play.
You sign up for the game at the Firehouse at Main Street, USA.
You'll be given a map with important locations, as well as a pack of spell cards and a Sorcerers Key Card. You will also be trained on how to unlock Magic Portals in order to defeat the Disney villains.
Present a spell card from your deck to the villain.
Once you cast your spell and win the battle, you can move on to the next Magic Portal. Disney says that the challenge is "to eliminate each Portal's outlaw by presenting the right spell card or combination of cards — some scoundrels are tough, so it may take several spells to triumph."
When you arrive at your first Magic Portal, you must hold up your Sorcerers Key Card to the keyhole.
The card will unlock and give you access to a Disney villain ready to battle.
You'll use the clues on Merlin's map to locate 20 Magic Portals.
The portals are located throughout Adventureland, Fantasyland, and Frontierland and on Main Street, USA.
You can see a Magic Portal in action in this video!
There are seven different types of Spell Cards.
They are Charming, Energy, Flying, Gross, Quick, Strong, and Wishful.
Anyone can play!
The game is fun for all ages. People even organize meetups to play together, fans trade and collect cards, and you can pick up wherever you left off in the game when you return to the park.
