Fans of the interactive card game Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom said goodbye to the popular experience today, as the Walt Disney Company has permanetly “retired” the experience at the Magic Kingdom.
January 24 marks the end of an eight year run for the game, popular among trading card collectors and children alike. According to WDW Magazine’s source inside Creative Contact and Digital Integration, the Sorcerers game vanished because “…mobile devices continue to play a vital role in the Disney theme park experience, and we are constantly innovating with new, on-the-go digital experiences, such as Magic Mobile, Play Disney Parks app and additional enhancements to My Disney Experience.”
Due to these changes “…in how our Guests use mobile technology in mind and decreased demand for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, we will be retiring this interactive experience on Jan. 24.”
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom can now be added to the list of other interactive games that have since disappeared at Disney Parks, such as Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure and the experience that Perry the Platypus replaced, Kim Possible’s World Showcase Adventure. There were plans to replace Agent P’s game with a rebranded version starring the characters from Duck Tales in 2020, but no updates are available on the rescheduled debut.
Stay tuned for more Disney attraction news (hopefully of the positive variety) in the near future.
