    It will take weeks, maybe months, for you to earn every sticker and find all the collectibles.

    Still, it’s hard to deny that Disney Magical World has a remarkably addictive quality to it. This is clearly a title aimed at a younger crowd, but I think there’s a fair amount here that adults can enjoy as well.

    Don't let Disney Magical World's slow start and over-friendliness fool you. There's a lot to do in this neighborly kingdom, even for older fans of Mickey.

    If you have a child or a friend who loves Disney and just can't get into simulators, this is their gateway, but I have a feeling that a lot of hardcore fans won't really get their money's worth.

    For more seasoned gamers, Disney Magical World might be a pleasant surprise. For kids, it could feel genuinely magical.
  6. Worth a few hours of uncynical fun. [Christmas 2014, p.92]

    Disney Magical World lacks challenge and appeal, even for a game that's aimed towards kids. The game features lots of content, however, most of it is reused many times, and that turns this “magical adventure” into a tedious and boring experience.

    I got bored with Animal Crossing and needed something to hold me over until Tomodachi Life comes out. I wasn't expecting to like this game as much as I did. It has some very sweet moments not to mention that it's really fun to see your Mii interacting with Disney characters and lands. Expand

    Tons of replay value, and lots to do for Disney fans. Well worth your time and money. While some may say that this is an Animal Crossing clone, they actually went above and beyond a simple clone of an existing popular game and added to the genre. Great use of your existing Mii, an even some StreetPass items thrown into the mix as well. Excellent overall experience for casual and non-casual gamers alike, and even better for Disney fans. Expand

    Game is very fun, but once you complete all of the episodes and get all the stickers, it gets boring. Nothing to do but run the cafe. They need to provide a new update with more episodes. Expand
