Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Card Revealed for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off this Friday at Magic Kingdom and one of the treats party guests look forward to are the game cards available for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.  This year’s event-exclusive card features the Country Bears from the Country Bear Jamboree attraction.

According to Imagineer Jonathan Ackley, the County Bears were chosen to be featured on this year’s card to really celebrate the “party” atmosphere of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

“What better way to help celebrate a party than with a performance by the world’s favorite ursine band?” Jonathan Said. “And on Halloween, anything scary will have no choice but to flee before the happy music of the Country Bears!”

In case you aren’t familiar, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an in-park interactive experience that allows guests of all ages to join Merlin’s quest to stop Disney Villains from taking over Magic Kingdom Park. Guests use a map to search for villain hideouts throughout the park, and visit magic portals where they use spell cards to fight back against a villain’s plan. The journey begins at the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A., where you can pick up everything you need to play.

This special event card will be distributed separately (and in addition to) the regular Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card packs you’re given at this location. Guests must register to play with their party ticket and event wristband in order to get one.
