I didn’t grow up visiting Disney World and neither did my kids. But, after our youngest child became a cast member, I became a total convert. I visit as often as I can and with each visit, I check out a new way to explore the Parks. My latest obsession? The Sorcerer Game at Magic Kingdom.
For a bit of background, I am not a big fan of rides. Even Disney rides. But, I love the atmosphere and magic you find while visiting the parks. The food, the sights, the sounds, it’s all magical. So, I find other ways to entertain myself while visiting the parks. While the rest of the family heads off to ride Thunder Mountain, I head out to explore the different parts of the park. This leads me to …. the Sorcerer Game at Magic Kingdom.
After playing a few rounds of this game, I asked many long term visitors of Magic Kingdom if they have played the game too. I was very surprised to hear, they didn’t even know what I was talking about. Yep, long term Disney fans didn’t know anything about this really fun way to explore the Magic Kingdom.
A lot of people think Disney is just for kids, well…. I can tell you, it’s not. I have visited the parks with adults and with kids. Have to say…. adult trips are a lot of fun! Why? I can play a few rounds of the Sorcerer Game and don’t feel a bit guilty about it.
So, what is this game? It’s an interactive game played with cards at various portals throughout the park. So, first things first. Stop by the Scoerer game portal on Main Street next to the Firehouse. Here, you will get your instructions, your map, your first deck of cards. The game will be linked to the Magic Band you are wearing at the time, so be sure to keep it so you can pick up where you left off on your next visit.
At the Firehouse, you receive your instructions and first assignment. The mission? Defeat 8 villians and save the Magic. Pretty easy right? Well, it is, but then again, you need to find the portals and defeat the villians with your spell cards. Once you defeat the 8 villians you can do it all again… there are a total of three levels.
Best part? Each time you defeat a villian or visit the park, you can pick up where you left off (and get a new deck of cards). These cards are collectibles among Disney nerds. After playing the game… I can see why.
