Can you believe that Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party starts on August 17th?! How exciting! Disney Parks Blog announced that this year fans of Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom can pick up a very special event-exclusive game card inspired by Orange Bird!
As the storyline behind the card goes: During one of his walks through the Adventureland, Merlin met the adorable Orange Bird. Merlin was so taken with the little fellow, that he created a brand new Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom spell in his honor.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an in-park interactive quest that allows guests of all ages to join Merlin’s mission to stop Disney Villains from taking over the park. Search for villain hideouts throughout the park, and visit magic portals where they use these spell cards to stop a villain’s plan.
This special event card will be distributed separately (and in addition to) the regular Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card packs guests are given at this location. Register to play with your party ticket and event wristband in order to get one.
Here’s How To Play!
Stop by the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A. for everything necessary to begin 9 exciting quests, including a Sorcerer Key Card, Merlin’s mystical map, spell cards and training on how to unlock Magic Portals and defeat the dastardly evildoers.
Use the clues on Merlin’s map to locate 20 Magic Portals situated throughout Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland and along Main Street, U.S.A. Upon arriving at the first Magic Portal, hold up your Sorcerer Key Card to unlock and gain access—one of Hades’ henchmen will pop up prepared for battle!
Present a spell card to crush the creep; once victory is yours, move on to the next Magic Portal. Different Disney pals will also appear to guide you along your way. Your 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. After annihilating his minions, you’ll be spell-to-spell with Hades himself!
Finish as many missions as you wish—the keepers of the Magic Kingdom are grateful for your help! Merlin will appear in the final portal, welcoming you to the ranks of “Master Sorcerer” upon completing the full game. Hold onto your wizard wands and get ready for spellbinding adventures at every turn!
