Merlin is looking for assistance in saving the Magic Kingdom from villains and you can help! Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a free interactive game anyone with a park admission can play while visiting the Magic Kingdom.
Where to Start
After entering the Magic Kingdom, you can stop at the Fire Station on Main Street, U.S.A or a small outpost near the Christmas Shoppe in Frontierland to pick up your free pack of cards each day you visit. For new players, you can go through a brief tutorial with a Cast Member to give you some pointers on how to play the game. You’ll also receive your key card to unlock the portals (this can also be loaded onto your MagicBand). Returning guests can also stop to pick up their cards and be reminded of the location they left off at to continue their quest.
Follow the Map and Clues
After getting your cards, the Cast Members will let you know what portal you’ll need to start your quest at. Using the map provided, locate the symbol and head off to start your adventure. Each of the quests keeps you in one area of the Magic Kingdom so you won’t be running all over the park to complete anything.
In addition to the free card packs you can get, you can purchase additional cards in the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A. and Sir Mickey’s in Fantasyland. Here you can also purchase a booklet to hold all your cards as well as shirts that increase the power of your spell cards. Special limited edition cards are also available for guests attending events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Each person in your party with a park admission can get a pack of cards. While my three year old and I don’t play, we do get the packs of cards for the boys to use and trade.
Players often trade cards to complete their collections. Consider spreading a little pixie dust to other guests by trading (or just gifting) some of your duplicate cards to them while waiting in line for your turn at the portal.
This is a great way to let your older kids have a little bit of independence in the parks. Some of the areas, Fantasyland for example, have portals close enough that parents can find a spot and watch the kids go from portal to portal on their own. Not all quests have portals like this and you’ll have to use your judgement about how far you’ll let them go on their own.
For guests that like collecting the cards, there are Facebook groups you can join where people actively trade cards with each other. Please use common courtesy in these groups and trade honestly. No one likes being disappointed when their cards don’t arrive as promised.
