Magic Kingdom comes to Minecraft: ride the rides, get autographs and see the fireworks, all from your phone, computer or console!

Disney Parks has collaborated with Minecraft to bring fans an exciting new content pack that allows them to virtually experience all the fun of Magic Kingdom.

The new Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Adventure downloadable content pack for Minecraft was released on Tuesday, and we already love it! (Yep, my daughter downloaded it that night and began her adventure immediately!)

Minecraft is a video game in which players use three-dimensional blocks to build and create things, places, and buildings within a virtual 3D world, making it the perfect platform for a virtual Walt Disney World experience at Magic Kingdom. Originally created and owned by Mojang and Minecraft Intellectual Property, Minecraft debuted on the video game scene in 2011. It was purchased by the Microsoft Corporation in 2014 for $2.5 billion.

The Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Adventure pack was originally created in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Walt Disney World Resort in October 1971. The pack brings the magic of Disney to fans wherever they are, which is especially fun for those who haven’t yet made it to the parks for the 18-months-long celebration.

The Magic Kingdom content pack allows Minecraft players to do things they usually can’t do within the virtual 3D world. Fans can board 20 different Magic Kingdom attractions and “ride” the rides. The attention to detail within each “Minecrafted” Magic Kingdom experience is amazing, especially when you consider that Minecraft operates with a fully pixelated look.

In fact, the Minecraft virtual version of Magic Kingdom looks so much like the “real world Magic Kingdom,” that we feel like we’re right there with the characters, amongst the magical scenery, experiencing all the different attractions.

Fans can virtually ride attractions like the Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, the Jungle Cruise, it’s a small world, Pirates of the Caribbean, and more! Users can also stroll down Main Street, U.S.A., and see the Dapper Dans!

At the end of a long and magical day at the park, Minecrafters can even take in a spectacular fireworks show at Cinderella Castle.

  

Users can also get autographs from Disney and PIXAR characters with a virtual autograph book when they aren’t enjoying one of the many fan favorite attractions. See Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Sheriff Woody, and others as you make your way through the theme park and many others.

 

No word yet on whether users can get a pineapple Dole whip cup or don a Magic Kingdom spirit jersey, and so far, we haven’t seen too many Disney Cast Members either.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
