How To Unlock The Disney Infinity Dragon

Disney Infinity

If you have a MagicBand and own Disney Infinity, there is a special ‘toy’ for you!

After reading hints that MagicBands would unlock something special in Disney Infinity, I decided to visit my friend John with my MagicBand to see what would happen!

In Disney’s most ambitious video game initiative ever, Disney Infinity introduces an all-new game universe where a spark of imagination unlocks a fantastical world where players have unprecedented freedom and endless opportunity to create stories and play experiences starring the beloved characters from Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios’ most popular franchises.


For the first time, players will place real-world interactive figures – characters, power discs and Play Set pieces – on the Disney Infinity Base to activate original, story-driven adventures in the game worlds, also known as Play Sets. In each respective Play Set, players will take on the role of a variety of popular characters and battle enemies, solve challenging puzzles, overcome obstacles and complete a variety of other unique quests.

Using the Wii version of Disney Infinity and my MagicBand, we indeed found something special…we unlocked Dragon Gate.

To unlock this feature, all you need to do is tap your MagicBand on your Disney Infinity Base. Once you tap your MagicBand, you will receive ‘Dragon Gate’. Once you place Dragon Gate in your Toy Box of Disney Infinity, you will receive a Dragon toy and you will also find a Dragon flying in the sky above you.


Here are a few things that you may want to keep in mind when you are unlocking Dragon Gate:

  • Once we placed Dragon Gate in our Toy Box, we had to wait a little while before the Dragon appeared. We tried walking in and out of the area, we walked around the nooks and crannies of the area, and even tried interacting with the area but nothing worked to trigger the Dragon to appear. So just make sure you are patient, because your Dragon will appear…I promise!
  • Right before your Dragon appears, you will hear a definite change in music. That music is your cue to look up in the skies above you!
  • Once you hear the music, you will want to hop in something that flies so you can take off after your fire-breathing dragon.
  • Your Dragon could appear near you or he could be mischievous and flying far above or away from you. To find him quickly, be sure to listen for his flapping wings and look for the fireballs he breathes.

You may notice that this Dragon looks familiar! The Disney Infinity Dragon is a dead ringer for the Disney Dragon that flew over New Fantasyland at the Media Preview Event.

I hope that you enjoy your Dragon and playing Disney Infinity!!!

SeaWorld Orlando Animal Rescue Team Returns Turtle

SeaWorld Orlando
SeaWorld Orlando Animal Rescue Team Returns Green
Sea Turtle and Eggs to Cocoa Beach

A 360-pound green sea turtle was returned to the waters off Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach, Fla. this morning. The SeaWorld Orlando Rescue Team also assisted in returning four of her eggs, which were a surprise addition.

Just minutes before the turtle was moved to the SeaWorld Rescue vehicle, she began releasing eggs. The team was able to act quickly and gathered the eggs, which were transported in wet sand to the return site.

Upon arrival at Lori Wilson Park, the eggs were buried in a marked nest site by Don George, environmental consultant with Geomar who holds a permit from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to handle sea turtle eggs. George inspected each egg before placing it in the marked nest site, located only yards away from where the adult turtle was returned.


SeaWorld Orlando

The green sea turtle was initially brought to SeaWorld Orlando on Monday by the University of Central Florida Marine Turtle Research Group. The UCF group spotted the turtle, which was lethargic and struggling after a nesting event at Cocoa Beach, Fla. The group was concerned the turtle was suffering from paralysis of its back flippers, so they felt medical attention was necessary.

When the sea turtle arrived at the park, blood samples and radiographs were done to determine an underlying cause to the turtle’s distress. Test results came back normal and the large sea turtle began regaining strength. She was medically cleared prior to today’s return.

In collaboration with the government and other members of accredited stranding networks, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment operates one of the world’s most respected programs to rescue ill and injured marine animals, with the goal to rehabilitate and return to the waters. SeaWorld animal experts have helped more than 22,000 animals in need – ill, injured, orphaned and abandoned – for more than four decades.

SeaWorld Orlando

So far this year, SeaWorld Orlando has rescued 51 and returned 43 sea turtles.

Green sea turtles are an endangered species that normally lay over 100 eggs per clutch. To report someone disturbing a sea turtle nest or an injured, dead or harassed sea turtle call 888-404-3922 or dial  *FWC on a cellular device.
