You know we love sharing inside tips here on the Disney Parks Blog and this week Walt Disney Imagineer Jonathan Ackley had more than a few for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.

Early Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Concept Art

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an in-park interactive experience in which you join forces with Merlin to defeat Disney Villains who are scheming to take over Magic Kingdom Park. You use maps to search for villain hideouts throughout the park, visit magic portals and use magic spell cards to foil each villain’s plan.

Paying attention to spell choice is one of many tips Jonathan shared. You can find his complete list in Jennifer’s original story.


And our “Celebration of True Love” is just one of many experiences planned during Valentine’s Day week as we continue our “Limited Time Magic” surprises at Disney Parks. We shared an update on some of the special experiences you can expect during February 11-17 and we asked for your stories of love, especially those with a Disney connection.
