As the Disney Parks continue to move forward, just as Walt Disney said they would, they must also make changes by eliminating and discontinuing certain experiences that may be outdated.
As of today, this change has officially been put into place and the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game is no longer available to Guests. In fact, the Main Street Firehouse has no indication that this was ever the home base for the interactive scavenger hunt game as Disney World continues to move forward and adapt to today’s technology.
If you’ve played this game at Magic Kingdom, you know that it utilized older technology and paper playing cards. With times changing, technology adapting, and smartphones being used for nearly everything, Disney is continuing to adjust theme park offerings so they adapt to the new era, and this game was a bit outdated, even with its loyal fanbase.
As Walt Disney once said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” We cannot wait to see what Walt Disney World will bring to its Guests next!
More on Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
In case you aren’t familiar, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom was an interactive scavenger hunt that allowed Guests to work with Merlin and stop Hades from taking over the theme park. The official description stated:
Hades has an evil plan to make Magic Kingdom park his new summer home. He’s enlisted a brigade of Disney baddies—Cruella, Scar, Jafar, Maleficent, Ursula, Yzma, Ratcliffe and Dr. Facilier—to help track down 4 enchanted crystal shards, which are hidden throughout the park. It’s up to you to foil their plans and save the day.
