The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card game is now permanently closed after almost eight years of operation. The beloved game allowed guests to collect trading cards and use them to defeat Disney Villains at different “portals” throughout the park.

The game was stationed out of the Main Street U.S.A. firehouse, which is now closed for refurbishment. It is unknown how long the refurbishment will last or what plans may be in the future for the firehouse.

The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom posters featuring Merlin are now gone from beneath the Main Street U.S.A. train station. In one tunnel, there is a second Orange Bird poster for Sunshine Tree Terrace.

The other tunnel replaced the poster with a Walt Disney World Railroad poster, which does leave us hopeful the railroad will reopen soon.

Above is what the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom posters looked like.

The game’s portals throughout the park were not covered up or removed overnight.

It will probably take much longer to remove the portal emblems from the ground and replace the portals with fresh theming.

The game’s Liberty Square station was often closed, but now all Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom signage has been removed.

Are you sad to see the game go? Let us know in the comments.

  1. We are very sad to see it go we were there all weekend playing our last portals until last night at 7pm. It was sad. Took some fun photos with photopass and headed home. It was a great game and fun way to pass time.

  2. Man, our family will really miss this game. We played it at least 2 or 3 times every trip with our elementary age kids. Sad to see Disney taking out all the magic in the name of Covid without adding anything else to the experience. Maybe time to reconsider our annual passes

  3. with the Demise of SOMK, the only thing thats going thru my mind is “A Pirates Adventures- Treasures of the seven seas” Interactive game. At the end of each game you get cool collectible cards. This never came back after pandemic reopening. One would wonder if this too has become a casualty of the post pandemic changes @ wdw???

  4. We are so sad to see this go. We only discovered it recently, and weren’t able to get back before it closed. It was a great collectible and good way to see the park when you aren’t big ride people.

  5. I have an autistic son who loved playing SotMC. There were many days at disney where we played between meals, never going on a single ride. Yet one more reason to find alternatives for spending my families hard earned entertainment dollars.

  6. My daughter who is wheelchair bound with a trach loves disney and that was one of the few things she could do at Disney

  7. More disappointed as this game captured my son’s imagination. He’s ASD and looked forward to battling the villains. On our last trip he ventured on his own (never done that before as he always wanted someone with him) doing the hardest/longest play. Unfortunately, and after 5+ hours of play, the game broke-down just as he was about to battle Hades as the final villain. He was told Hades was so scared of being defeated, he ran back to the underworld!
