Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party returns to Magic Kingdom Park this Friday, November 8 – but we have an early sneak peek at this year’s party-exclusive Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card that fans can pick up only on party nights.
In case you’re new to the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom interactive game, guests can team up with Merlin to help defeat scheming Disney Villains who wish to take over Magic Kingdom Park. Guests locate villain hideouts throughout the park and visit magic portals where they use special spell cards to ward off the villain’s attack. Each spell card stars a different Disney character, each with their own unique powers.
The game begins at the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A., where you can pick up complementary spell cards and maps. Additional cards can be purchased at select merchandise locations.
According to Imagineer Jonathan Ackley, “while gazing into his crystal ball, Merlin caught sight of the mischievous chipmunks Chip and Dale. The scampering scamps were playing a festive trick on the unwary Pluto the Pup,” he said. “When he finished laughing at their Holiday Hijinks, Merlin decided to create a magical spell in their honor. Now the Sorcerers attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party can learn this spell, ‘Pluto’s Toppling Popcorn.’ With it, they can defend the realm of the Magic Kingdom…deliciously!”
