Walt Disney World recently shared that a beloved interactive scavenger hunt, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, will be closing. Fans of the game were stunned and upset to learn of another piece of Disney magic being removed. Now, Disney has released the end date for this popular game. Will you get the chance to play one last time?

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an interactive game that you can play  in the Magic Kingdom. The game is included in your admission to the park, and can be done while you explore Magic Kingdom!

Playing is easy, and a lot of fun! You’ll start by visiting the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A. Here you’ll receive your Sorcerer Key Card, Merlin’s mystical map, and spell cards.

You’ll then explore Magic Kingdom Park using Merlin’s map, and use the Key Card to defeat the villains.

Study the clues on Merlin’s map to locate 20 Magic Portals situated throughout the park and use your cards to battle Hades’ henchmen—and eventually come spell-to-spell with Hades himself.

Walt Disney World recently announced that this popular game would be closing.

Today, Disney has officially updated their website to reflect the end date for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.

The first date that shows no availability for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is January 25, 2021.

That means your last chance to play this beloved game will be January 24, 2021. Hurry to Magic Kingdom and play if you still can!

Fan Reactions

Fans were outraged when they learned of this beloved game’s closing!

Disney has changed so much, and many fans feel that the Disney we’ve always known and loved is gone!

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom’s closing was just one of many hits Disney fans have taken over the past several months.

We’ve recently learned that MagicBands will no longer be complimentary to Disney World Resort Guests, and luggage tags and Magical Extras would no longer be mailed ahead of time to Resort Guests.

We then learned there was even more bad news! Not only is Walt Disney World altering Extra Magic Hours, but they’ve even decided that Guests will no longer be offered Disney’s Magic Express transportation to and from Orlando International Airport.

With so many changes to operations to comply with COVID safety standards, and so many cuts to “magical” offerings for staying on site, many Disney fans are left feeling…disappointed.

Will you be able to make it to Magic Kingdom to play Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom one last time before it closes? What are your thoughts on these big changes? Let us know on Facebook!

    I think removing Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a real shame, and now announcing the removal of the Magical Express, and there still being no announced plan for FastPass or similar, are all short-sighted and anti-guest decisions.

    If Disney has replacement plans for these items, they would do themselves, and all of us who love WDW a favor, by quickly announcing what those plans are.
