Disney rolls out new Magic Kingdom game

A new game is being rolled out Wednesday at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, and kids as young as 3 years old can enjoy it.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an interactive card game in which players will battle villains who are trying to take over the theme park.
But perhaps the most magical thing about the role-playing game is that it leads Disney guests on a journey around the park without having to wait in line. Sometimes, waits for rides can be up to 90 minutes.
"Wait is as much about perception as it is about time," said Jim MacPhee, senior vice president of Walt Disney World Parks. "We want to bring the great perception and a great experience that our guests are immersed in the story every step of the way."
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is just one of many things Disney has done to offer entertainment without wait times. Imagineers have been working to take the stories from some of their most popular rides and bring them out into the queues.
"It's really about peeling it back layer after layer and letting guests get as deep as they want to into the story but really walk away with a rich experience," MacPhee said.
Reports say Imagineers spent four years working on the game and there are almost 100 original animations in it.
