From Jennifer Fickley-Baker on the Disney Parks Blog:
Watch carefully over the coming days and you may see people casting spells in Adventureland. Walt Disney Imagineering has recruited Cast Members to test a new interactive experience: Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.
Early next year, Disney Guests become the heroes in this role-playing trading-card game as they try to defeat the Disney Villains who are working to take over the Magic Kingdom. Armed with magic spells in the form of special cards, players must search for the magic symbols that lead them to the animated villains’ hiding places. By casting different magical spell cards, these Sorcerers can do battle with Yzma, Kronk and other ne’er do wells hiding throughout the land. From fireballs to frantic frogs and cyclones, there are spells to bring down each and every villain, with a simple flick of the wrist.
Based on the images shown, it looks like Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom will be an interactive card game of sorts. Guests will use spell cards (looks like there will be up tom 70 of these) to defeat various Disney Villains throughout the entire park.
From the look of things, Adventureland is the only area running the game so far for these play-tests, and since these were the first displays installed, it really isn’t all that surprising. Installation of the interactive sets recently reached Fantasyland and we have confirmed that Main Street U.S.A. will be getting in on the action soon. We haven’t seen much work in Tomorrowland as of yet, but it is possible that the small walls we have been discussing for several weeks have something to do with this game.
WDW News Today will have more information on Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom as it becomes available. Stay tuned…
