Infinite Possibilites
It Started With a Mouse…

When Smallest Thumbs and I first started playing Disney Infinity, we enjoyed the introduction, which was presented by none other than Mickey Mouse, the cornerstone of the Disney empire. Wandering around the Hall of Heroes within the game, we saw that there was a podium for Mickey, which meant that he was going to be released as a figure for the game. Well, the time has finally come for Mickey to step up to take his place in the Toy Box! Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey has come to Disney Infinity!

As can be seen in the photo at the top of the article, Mickey is wearing his costume from Fantasia. In that film, he decided to try out his own hand at sorcery; and, as you may or may not recall, Mickey wasn’t very good at magic at all. Mickey’s “magical joyride” met with failure, and he had to be bailed out by his teacher, the sorcerer known as Yen Sid. Of course, that was then – this is now.

Mickey definitely looks quite at home wielding that wand.

This time around, in Disney Infinity, Mickey is a tough customer who knows what he’s doing. Mickey’s normal attack is a ranged ability that shoots a magical bolt that zig-zags its way to its target, doing a fair amount of damage when it makes contact. For a more powerful impact, Mickey summons a ring of brooms with buckets of water that give some weight to his ground-pound attack. Mickey also brings a new Toy Box adventure to the table called “Mickey’s Magical Escape”, and he has a few bonuses that are available by finding and opening character vaults that have his face on them.

Mickey doesn’t have a Play Set of his own, which doesn’t really matter as he fits in quite nicely in any Toy Box, and pairs well with any of the other characters. And is there really any wonder why? I mean, he was the character that started it all in the first place! Mickey is available at many big-box stores and some of your favourite gaming retailers. However, the Frozen sisters and Rapunzel disappeared from shelves pretty quickly, so if you are planning on grabbing Mickey, you had best move quickly…
