Each and every year during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, there is a party-exclusive Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card that is released. This year’s card is themed after Mickey’s dog, Pluto and is called “Pluto’s Toppling Popcorn.”
According to Imagineer Jonathan Ackley, “while gazing into his crystal ball, Merlin caught sight of the mischievous chipmunks Chip and Dale. The scampering scamps were playing a festive trick on the unwary Pluto the Pup,” he said. “When he finished laughing at their Holiday Hijinks, Merlin decided to create a magical spell in their honor. Now the Sorcerers attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party can learn this spell, ‘Pluto’s Toppling Popcorn.’ With it, they can defend the realm of the Magic Kingdom…deliciously!”
For those who don’t know, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an interactive game, that has Guests teaming up with Merlin to help defeat Disney Villains who wish to take over the Magic Kingdom. Guests can locate the villain hideouts throughout the park and visit magic portals where they use special spell cards to ward off the villain’s attack. Each spell card stars a different Disney character, each with their own unique powers.
Guests can pick up the special (and complimentary) card at the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A. on party evenings.
