The purpose of the Disney Infinity Power Discs is to provide either added abilities or items to the player while in the Toy Box mode or while playing in a Play Set, depending on which type of Power Disc is selected. Some of the rarest Disney Infinity collectibles are expected to come in the form of Power Discs given their shared design between discs.
Disney Infinity Power Discs by Series
Round Disney Infinity Power Discs
The round Disney Infinity Power Discs are designed to sit underneath a Disney Infinity character figure. It is rumored you can stack up to two discs under a single figure, and that figure will then grant the object or ability the Power Disc grants.
Hexagonal Disney Infinity Power Discs
The hexagonal Disney Infinity Power Discs are designed to sit in their own slot at the rest of the Disney Infinity Base. They provide a secondary character for use in Toy Box mode such as Dumbo or Maximus, and are only usable within Toy Box mode.
Disney Infinity Power Discs Availability
The Disney Infinity Power Discs will initially be packed blindly in Power Disc Packs for $4.99 with one Power Disc being round and the other hexagonal. Disney Interactive is planning to made some Power Discs more rare than others which will add a collectible factor to them.
It hasn’t gone unnoticed that the Disney Infinity Power Discs resemble a Cracker Jack prize. Disney is expected to use these Power Discs as incentive to buy other products such as theme park swag, cereal, and theoretically a whole lot more.
Disney Infinity Power Discs will be broken into series with Series 1 being available for the game’s launch on August 18, 2013. We will keep track of every Disney Infinity Power Disc by Series as they are announced.
