Sorcerers of the MagicKingdom, a new interactive park experience where guests get the chance to save the MagicKingdom from Hades and his Disney villain friends. This is all a-buzz around the DC (Disney Community) right now as it’s been going through soft opening for a few weeks, it looks set to open fully very soon! There’s a great review here if you fancy a sneak peek and an official Disney Video here.
Much like Kim Possible in Epcot, guests’ race around the park on different missions (20 – 30 minutes long) using magical spell cards to fend off the Disney villains, eventually going up against Hades himself. The artwork on these cards is stunning and they are set to be the latest collectable/tradable offering. Some will be rarer than others etc, possible even a few Limited Editions? Even the game maps are wonderfully designed. Though the designs might be lost on the youngsters, the older guests will certainly see their value and appreciate the designs.
I’m happy that they chose Hades to be the lead villain, Hercules is one of my all time favorite Disney movies, so hopefully this will lead to more Hercules merchandise in the parks? *fingers crossed*
WDW is on RFID (radio frequency identification) implementation frenzy at the minute that does not look set to stop anytime soon. From resort mugs, to guest RFID wristbands, interactive artwork onboard the cruise ships, and now adventures around the parks, Disney is going digital on a completely new level!
