Why Disney Magic Kingdoms Is a Good Game For Kids
Disney Magic Kingdoms has often got me out of a bind when dealing with my kids. While we are never fans of having electronics babysit our children, there are situations when my wife and I make exceptions. While we use to just plop on Netflix, we’ve taken a new approach with our two boys. Both have grown up with a love for Disney, and at 8 and 4 years of age, they’ve both had their fair share of trips to Walt Disney World, and on some of the most beautiful ships on the ocean, via Disney Cruise Line. To say we are a Disney family would be an understatement. Along with the parks and ships comes the movies, and as they get older, their appreciation for both the old and the new is growing. That is what makes Disney Magic Kingdoms so fantastic.
As always, we are playing Disney Magic Kingdoms on our Google Pixel 2, provided to us by Google Canada. The Pixel 2 is a great multimedia phone with two front facing speakers for an optimum audio experience, whether playing games, watching movies, or listening to music! Read our review here.
The biggest bonus here is that Disney Magic Kingdoms does not require an Internet connection to play. Sure, certain aspects of the game won’t work unless you are connected to wifi – most notably, purchasing premium currency or magic potions, and getting daily log in bonuses, and finding your ranking in timed events – but 80-90% of the game is completely playable offline. You can finish tasks, assign tasks and even level up characters, all without a wifi connection.
To this end, although your kids can spend the gems and magic potions you currently own, there is no worry of them purchasing gems with real money. With no online interaction whatsoever – when out and about and not on a wifi network – there is little to worry about when letting your kids play. It’s a fairly safe environment, even when online!
The game is incredibly vibrant as well, and when kids see there favourite Disney characters wandering around on screen, there is something that instantly brings joy to their faces. My kids go nuts for Monsters Inc., so when they see Mike and Sully wandering the park, they absolutely love it!
If you have those moments when you just want your kids to settle into something for some quiet time, Disney Magic Kingdoms is a great resource. Give it a download now on iOS and Android!
