Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party returns to Magic Kingdom Park November 8, and this year Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom fans can pick up a special game card inspired by Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room 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 complimentary spell cards and maps. Additional cards can be purchased at select merchandise locations.
According to Imagineer Jonathan Ackley, this year’s party exclusive card was whipped up by Merlin the Magician after he became enchanted with a quartet of caroling birds down in the tropics.
“These charismatic avian performers inspired Merlin to create a new charm to give his acolytes for the year’s holiday celebration,” Jonathan said. “The Disney Villains will need to watch out, or they’ll end up with egg on their faces!”
