Disney Vacation Guide to Socerers of the Magic Kingdom

If you plan on visiting the Magic Kingdom in 2012, you’ll have a chance to participate in one of the most exciting role-playing adventures Disney World has ever seen. One where you get to be the hero!

See, villains are trying to take over the Magic Kingdom and it’s up to you to stop them. That’s right. Merlin the Magician needs some apprentice sorcerers to help him keep evil out of Adventureland and he’s recruiting guests.

You’ll be well-armed

Don’t worry. You’ll have special cards encrypted with potent magic spells that will lead you to the hiding places of animated villains where you can then bring them down with just a flick of the wrist in this first-of-its-kind adventure at Disney World.

It hasn’t been done here before

There’s never been interaction with animated characters like this in Disney World before, where guests cast spells in a role-playing adventure. As we write this, the Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom is still in the testing phase but it will be opening early in the year.

Where else can you see Sorcerers at Disney World?
