Main Street Fire Station is Home to Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, which is a FREE and FUN game to play when the lines are a bit busy or maybe you would just like to try something little different! You can sign up using your Magic Band at the firehouse on Main Street. There is also a 2nd location to sign up, just next to the Princess Tiana Meet and Greet location. It is a small podium, with just one cast member that can get you started on your missions.
When you sign up you will be given a special map that shows you where all of the Portals are located in the Magic Kingdom. Each member of the family will get a pack of 5 spell cards. You can EACH get a new set of spell cards EACH day you enter the Magic Kingdom. The game is now linked to one member of the families’ Magic band or hard copy park ticket. This family member will be the one who opens the portal to play the game at each location. Be sure to remember which band or card you used, this is a game that can be continued on any future visits to the Magic Kingdom!
Each adventure takes place in the lands of the Magic Kingdom; Adventurland, Liberty Square and Frontierland, Fantasyland and on Main Street, USA. You can select your starting point when you sign up. You will then go to the selected land and work to defeat the villain that is trying to take over the land. Once you defeat the evildoers, you will be then assigned a new land to visit and continue your conquest!
In Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom you have been recruited by Merlin, to help him defeat Hades and save the Magic Kingdom, from all the Disney Villains! At each portal, Merlin will ask you to help him by casting your spell cards, to stop the villains. You will need to hold one or more of your cards up, special cameras in the display read your card, cast your spell, and show you the results. Be sure to pay attention to the story because it can hold clues to which cards you should use against the villains. For example, if a villain says something like “Don’t toy with me!” then you should look for cards with characters that are toys, such as Pinocchio or another “toy spell” character.
The game has three levels: easy, medium, and hard. The easy version is the default and is appropriate for small children; in this version any card will work in defeating any of the villains. It is more fun though to listen to the clues and try to use the special cards they may mention. This way you are also getting ready for the more-advanced levels of the game, in which you may need to display two or more character cards in specific combinations to defeat a particular villain. The combinations may need to be used in a particular way to make a special spell to defeat the villains.
You can complete as many of the quest that you like during your visit. Each quest takes about 20 to 30 min. The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, has gained lots of popularity since it was started in early 2012. You will see lots of people doing it around the park. It is loads of fun for the whole family. We have been playing since it started and my kids, make sure we have our cards ready to go for each trip. Don’t forget you can also bring the cards on your next visit and continue your adventure. You can start and stop each quest as you like, just be sure to remember the portal pictured when you complete a task that is where you will continue your quest.
Also, if you attend the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party or Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party be sure to stop by the Firehouse, during these events they give out exclusive party cards!
