Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Coming to Walt Disney World Resort

In just days, you’ll be able to experience our new interactive game at Magic Kingdom Park called Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. But we knew Disney Parks Blog readers would enjoy one more sneak peek at what’s to come. So, this week, Jonathan Ackley, Project Producer & Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering, shared more about the game in an exclusive video.

You can also check out more photos from the game in our original blog post.

Also this week, we shared a behind-the-scenes look at how some of the world’s best rockwork artisans are creating Ornament Valley – the mountain range that serves as the backdrop to Radiator Springs in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park. They’ve been working on it for about two years and the process is fascinating to watch.

Here are some of the other links we’ve been working on.

  • I know this has nothing to do with this particular blog but is there any word yet about the Mobile Magic app coming to the I-Phone?

  • The rock work in Cars Land is phenomenal!

  • I did NOT realize that the guy I was chiding about having all the cards was none other than the host of the video/Project Producer & Creative Director. Mr. Ackley, if you’re reading this, I was the big guy who was mentioning that I use SotMK as physical therapy outside of the middle Fantasyland window. Thank you so much for such an awesome project from you and your fellow Imagineers!!
