Location: Magic Kingdom
Background: Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a card game. To get the free cards, you’ll need to go to the fire station on Main Street U.S.A. Inside they will give each member of your party a free pack of cards, teach you the basics of how to use the cards and teach you how to activate the portals. After you’ve learned the mechanics of the game, the cast member will hand you a map and tell you which portal to go to. The themes and designs of the portals are super intricate and they blend in well with the land’s decorations. Some are so cleverly hidden you might need to take a second glance to find them! Something to keep in mind is that in the direct sunlight, the video playing in the portal is somewhat challenging to see. Disney tries to combat this by putting the portals under awnings, but in some areas it is unavoidable.
Experience: At Griffin Guide, we love the experience of using cards to defeat all of the different villains! You will battle against the likes of Scar, Ursula, and Hades. The premise of the game is a storyline involving Hades. He’s trying to take over the Magic Kingdom using the Crystal of the Magic Kingdom. There are several difficulty levels, we recommend beginners trying the easy level to start out with and working their way up.
Card Overview: Each card falls under two categories; spell class and attack type. There are nine spell classes (Toy, Machine, Animal, Fairy, Hero, Princess, Warrior, Monster and Mystic) and seven attack types (Charming, Energy, Gross, Quick, Strong, Flying, and Wishful).
Griffin Guide Tips:
- There may be a line at portals, so be prepared to wait until your turn.
- There is no “official” way to play with these cards at home, but making your own card game could be a fun project for when you’re having Disney FOMO!
- During special events such as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Disney offers event exclusive cards. You can go to the fire station during the event and pick one up!
- You can hold up multiple cards to a portal at the same time to increase your power and strengthen your spell!
