Sorcerers of the Magic, which was talked about in Jeff Kober's article on MousePlanet
, is most likely the name of an upcoming high-tech adventure. The phrase has been trademarked by Disney since November 2010, but has been in development for quite some time. This project has yet to be officially announced, so we're not sure of specific
details, but we still have a general idea of what may happen.
It's rumored that the closed Fire Station on Main Street, U.S.A. will reopen as some sort of "hub/starting point" for this new game. There has been some chatter that this game may not use electronic devices (as Kim Possible's World Showcase Adventure does), but rather, a card/sheet or more recently, a wristband. The RFID wristband will play a key point in Disney's NextGen project, but it's unknown if it'll be used for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. Dizfanatic.com
was able to share some interesting information and concept art regarding Disney's NextGen project and these RFID wristbands. (click the site link for the article) If the wristbands are part of the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, it's expected that they will activate various interactive screens around the park. You will then have to solve and complete various tasks, which may cause something around you to activate (like the cannons above Pirates).
Below we have a photo recap of everything going on at the Magic Kingdom for this rumored interactive game. While many areas are being worked on and prepared for this game, it doesn't appear that the actual technology has been installed. This could mean it's still in development or just not ready quite yet. You'll also notice that it's not just Adventureland where some work is going on, but also Liberty Square - which has recently seen the addition of an interactive graveyard at the Haunted Mansion (could those busts in the graveyard be a part of Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom)?
