Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck were standing on the stage of a performance hall, practicing their magic act for a big magic show.
"I don't know..." Donald was saying. "We need some new magic. Something flashy."
"Hmm..." Mickey thought for a moment, then brightened. "Hey, Donald, what about this?" Mickey waved his wand, and POW! a flash and a huge puff of smoke burst from his magic hat. "That should end our performance with a bang, right, Donald? Donald? Are you all right?"
In the middle of a pile of background scenery, Mickey saw something move. Donald got up from where he had fallen, and pushed away a fake tree. "That was flashy, all right," he grumbled.
Donald turned around to see an unusual wooden box, carved to look like a face with a velvet curtain in its mouth. "A magic box! Oh, boy! This would be perfect for our act!"
But Mickey noticed something unusual - an ominous glow behind the curtain. "Uh, I don't know if that's such a good idea..."
"Aw c'mon, what are you afraid of?" Donald hopped into the box, and POOF! he was gone!
"Donald?" Mickey pulled the curtain aside. "Where are you?" He stepped into the box, and POOF! Mickey vanished as well!
As Mickey and Donald fell through darkness, an evil, booming laugh echoed all around them. "Welcome to my World of Magic!" a voice said mockingly . "You may be good magicians in your world, but you still have a lot to learn! If you don't learn quickly, you'll never leave this place! I can show you the way to go home, but only if you find me and defeat me in a magic duel. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!"
The two would-be magicians are transported to a strange, fantastic world where dreams are reality, and the unexpected is sure to happen! Only magic will protect them in times of danger. Will they find the way home?
Can you help them?
