Hunting for Enchanted Chests has quickly taken hold as the new way to spend time in Disney Magic Kingdoms. Much like searching for Pokemon in Pokemon GO, chests can be literally anywhere. This is something I learned very quickly after deciding to put this post together.
For this article, I reached out to the amazing DMK community and asked them to send me photos of every chest they found. What I got back was overwhelming to say the least. I simply had no idea of the sheer amount of locations where chests were hiding in the game. I found myself gasping at the randomness of some of these locations. I simply couldn’t believe it.
As such, you will see folks mentioned under each photo as a way of thanking them for their help. To those who sent in photos, even if they aren’t listed here, as I got several duplicate locations, I just want to give a huge Thank You because Wow, what a wonderful response. You guys are simply outstanding and constantly remind me why I love writing this blog so much!
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at where all these dastardly chests are hiding. Jump to the bottom of the post for a little more info on Chests.
Once Per Day Train Chest
This chest is dropped off my the train once per day so you can always be guaranteed at least one.
Main Street and Castle Area
The Main Street ones are probably the most obvious.
Frontier Land Entrance
These can be anywhere from right in front of the entrance to the closed off part of the park to the outskirts in front of the park.
Toon Town – Left Side of California Screamin’
Once again, super easy-peasy to find.
Incredibles Row – Right Side of California Screamin’
Here we start to see them finding their way to the outskirts, ending up on hills at the edge of the park and all along the far side of the park, near the camp and the scarecrow.
Tomorrow Land – Unlocked Land
Only one that I’ve seen in this area so far, yet with the right amount of attractions this one could be tricky to find.
Tomorrow Land – Locked Areas
These are probably the worst. They can be all the way across the river, where no one would think to look. If you have been searching for a while and haven’t found anything, try these tricky locales.
This one made me gasp.
Fantasy Land – Unlocked Areas
These seem to lay at the South corner where the Alice in Wonderland section is.
Fantasy Land – Locked Areas
These are just about as bad as those found in the locked Tomorrow Land areas. You’ll have to go to the very edge of the map to find some of them.
Chest Drops From Characters/ Attractions
As far as I can tell, the chest drops from attractions and character interactions are COMPLETELY RANDOM and could happen at any time from any attraction so click away friends. Click away.
What Happens When You Fill Up Your Chest Reserves
Once you have filled up your chest reserves, you’ll be asked to either pay gems to open one, or discard one. Luckily, you can pick which chest to open/drop.
The gem cost is:
Bronze – 12 gems
Silver – 24 gems
Gold – 36 gems
Once again, thank you to all the folks who contributed to this post. I was absolutely floored by the love and support given to my outreach for this post. If you are playing DMK and want to join the conversation, I’d like to recommend three excellent Facebook groups who do a great job of sharing info! Do yourself a favor and just join all of them!
