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

    It’s fun and innocent, staying true to the Disney message and aesthetic while delivering a quality experience that will certainly ring true to the young and young at heart.

    Disney Magical World may not be revolutionary, but it feels like an evolution of the Animal Crossing model.

    Disney Magical World is a fun romp with a plethora of objectives to complete and items to create, but by the time you find yourself running across the same stretch of land for the umpteenth time to gather more items for that next quest, the magic starts to fade.

    For more seasoned gamers, Disney Magical World might be a pleasant surprise. For kids, it could feel genuinely magical.

    Just like Disneyland, such a collection of entertaining attractions filled with fan service will delight children, but the repetitiveness of those activities and the lack of narrative reveal this magical world's superficial nature, even more obvious to the grown-ups, unless they still enjoy wearing ear hats.

    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
