How MagicBands Unlock Disney Infinity's Hidden Dragon
When the game debuted, featuring such park icons as Spaceship Earth, the Matterhorn, Parking Lot Trams and flying Dumbos, many fans wondered if the actual, physical parks would ever play a role in providing exclusive content. It didn't take long to find out: WDW's MagicBands unlock Infinity's hidden world--one based around the New Fantasyland Dragon that graced Orlando skies for a press event a while back.
Mouse on the Mind came to my rescue by sending me a MagicBand! It can't be said enough: Disney fans are the nicest people on the planet. Thanks, Melissa!!!!
If you're still wondering what the heck Disney Infinity actually is, please check out our review. In a nutshell, however, it's amazing. It excels at three particular things: 1) Encouraging creativity 2) Pouring on the Disney charm 3) Emptying your wallet, but giving you your money's worth -- much like a Disney vacation.
So, if you have a MagicBand, the game and a figure ready to go (today's guest star: Sorcerer Mickey!) here's how you go about finding that elusive dragon:
1) Start a game session and choose any Toybox world.
2) Place the Magic Band on the Infinity Base's Player Two zone. The game will instantly announce you've unlocked the Dragon Gate. Save your game. At this point, you can remove the Magic Band from the base: It's done its job and the game will remember you've unlocked the gate.
Now choose the Dragon Gate from your inventory and place it in the world. This triggers the arrival of three more bonuses contained in floating green prize capsules.
The game announces your prize.
Soon you'll obtain the capsules containing The Dragon Sky and a set of new dragon world-themed textures and landscapes to apply to any of your creations.
Here's what they (and that elusive dragon) look like:
