Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom (SOTMK) was a free, interactive, card-based game that ran in Disney World Florida’s Magic Kingdom from February 22nd 2012 to January 24th 2021.
Players were recruited as sorcerers by Merlin and tasked with stopping Hades from taking control over the Magic Kingdom. Players were given a key card (alternatively they could use their magic band), 5 spell cards per day and a map. They would then make their way around the Magic Kingdom and interact with ‘magic portals’ to beat a series of Disney villains until a final showdown with Hades.

The list also helps you identify your cards by providing info on each card (eg. number, symbol, character, weapon, spell, action, stats and more).
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Gameplay
Recruitment posters (like the one below) would first guide new players to the Firehouse on Main Street USA. New players, having been welcomed and given a brief gameplay synopsis by Merlin, were given a key card (alternatively they could use their magic band), a map and 5 spell cards. Players could get 5 more spell cards each day they entered the Magic Kingdom.
Players were tasked with defeating a series of Disney villains. They’d encounter these villains at various ‘magic portals’ around the Magic Kingdom.
Players would activate these portals with their key card or magic band which would also save their game progress. That meant players could return to the game from where they left off days, weeks or months later. Once a portal was activated, players would use their spell cards (either the card front or reverse) to attack villains and their henchmen at each portal.
Spells could be cast one at a time but up to 7 cards could be used at once to have a greater impact.
After each portal encounter, players would be told which portal to head to next. This wasn’t a set path. Disney relied on algorithms to guide players to quieter portals to prevent portal crowding.
Players had to defeat each villain (and their henchmen) until a final showdown with Hades completed their adventure.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Villains
Wondering how many Villains were in Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom? There were 10 main villains that you’d have to defeat, 8 of which were tied to specific lands in the Magic Kingdom. Chernabog and Hades were endgame Villains that you’d face after you’d defeated the first 8 Villains.

Did you Get Anything For Completing Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom?
Yes, after defeating the game, players would get 1 additional pack of 5 Spell Cards. Merlin would grant the player ‘Master Sorcerer’ level and give the player a score based on the number of portals the player had to visit to defeat each Villain. After any game, players could play again at their current difficult level or they could move up to medium or hard.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom levels
You could play Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom in Easy, Medium or Hard mode. Whatever level, the fewer portals visited, the higher the player’s ‘Master Sorcerer’ score at the end of the game:
Easy - Sorcerers would defeat Villains by casting spells with one card no matter the Villain’s strength or weakness. The Sorcerers Crest on the back of each card was often used and in easy mode, Villains were defeated easily and quickly.
Medium - To beat Villains at this level, you’d have to take into account their strengths and weaknesses. If the card type matched the Villain’s weakness, sorcerers would defeat the villain. If the card matched the Villain’s strength, multiple attacks were required. No battle would last more than 2 portals at this level.
Hard - Card types were still used at this level but Villain’s weaknesses were now randomised. This meant the player would have to figure out which spell type to use on each Villain. No battle would last more than 3 portals at this level.
On the Easy and Medium level of Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, each Villain had a specific strength and weakness. If the spell card type matched the weakness, the Villain would be defeated. If it matched the Villain’s strength, more attacks were required.
For example, you could focus on using Charming spell cards to attack Jasper. Fewer attacks would be required, increasing your score at the end of your game.
Below were the Villains’ strengths and weaknesses:
Jasper - Weakness = Charming | Strength = Quick
Cruela De Vil - Weakness = Gross | Strength = Wishful
Iago - Weakness = Strong | Strength = Flying
Jafar’s Snake - Weakness = Energy | Strength = Quick
