Since 2009, Minecraft, a game about moving blocks around a digital world, has captured the attention of a generation. The premise of the game is much like that of a bin of LEGOs: build something. Anything. Whatever your imagination can come up with. This means that if you were to, say, decide that a block was one meter (about three feet) to a side, you could recreate almost any building, structure, or series of structures from real life on a one-to-one scale. All of Disney World, for instance.Approaching its second year of operation, mcmagic.us is the largest and most complete to-scale model of Walt Disney World in Minecraft. The scope of the project spans three parks, four resorts, and thirty ride experiences complete with music and text narration. It sees over a thousand unique visitors each week and is operated by an international team of Minecraft pros with a drive to recapture some of the wonder of the real place. Still…all of Walt Disney World. We get asked the questions “How?” and “Why?” a lot.
