When we got our Disney Infinity unit and figures, we ripped open the box, plugged it in, and just started playing. We didn’t read any instructions, we didn’t do any research — we just dived into our new beautiful, entertaining and Disney-filled world. It is so easy to get engaged and start played, we didn’t need any assistance online or off.
We went on adventures, we played with toys, we built stuff, and just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, it did! We found out that the game was staying very true to the definition of “infinity,” and that there were many different ways in which we could enhance and evolve our game play. From special figures, to “rare” power-ups, ” to toy box downloads, there were so many ways to delve even deeper into this Disney realm.
Check out these seven ways you can enhance your gaming experience right here:

Figure Exclusives 2 of 8
If you want to own all the Disney Infinity figures (and really who wouldn't?), you'll need to hit up a variety of stores. Several big chains have been lucky enough to score exclusives. For example, Game Spot will be the only store selling the Jack Skellington figure (which you can pre-order here), Toys-R-Us is the only store to carry the "crystal" character figures and Woody from Toy Story will debut only at Wal-mart before be offered at other stores.
Toy Box Downloads 3 of 8
You know what is one of the coolest things about Disney Infinity, there is always something to new to do and explore, just not on your own, but thanks to the Toy Box downloads. We recently got the Jungle Cruise toy box, the Alice in Wonderland inspired maze and the Sugar Rush meets Tron racetrack and all three of them are totally awesome. At first I was confused on how to get the Toy Box downloads, but as it turns out, it's ridiculously easy. Just go to the Disney Infinity Main Menu and then select "Toy Box Share" and "Disney's Toy Boxes," and the list of available downloads will be there waiting for you. And make sure to check back each week to see what's new!
Power Discs 4 of 8
If you have Disney Infinity, then you better also get yourself some power discs! Disney said of these special add ons: "They can an be used to improve and enhance the DISNEY INFINITY experience in a multitude of ways. Circular Power Discs are used to grant your character special power ups that can be used in Play Sets and in the Toy Box. Hexagonal Power Discs unlock special gadgets, vehicles, and themes to allow for even more personalization in the Toy Box. Different combinations mean different results, the possibilities are endless!" Yes, it is worth the small investment for the blind pack power discs.
Power Disc Meanings 5 of 8
There are little icons of the power discs that have special meanings. A power disc with a star will give your character special abilities, one that has a ball on it means you can get new vehicles, gadgets and more, and the paint brush means you can personalize your world.
Rare Power-Discs and Exlusives 6 of 8
So here's an interesting thing, did you know that each series of power-discs includes about three that are "rare?"
I didn't know this until we got the Abu the Elephant disc above that had a holographic image and a translucent color on the base. It looked special and we later found out it was. Also deemed "rare" in the first series are the Astro Blasters Space Cruiser, Dumbo Flying Elephant and Mike's New Car (which was a Toys 'R Us exclusive). And speaking of exclusives, there are power up exclusives as well!
Meet Ups 7 of 8
On of the things about the blind power-ups packs is that you have no idea what you'll be getting. But now there are organized meet-ups where you can come face to face with other Disney Infinity fans and do some power up trading! There was a recent one at the Toys 'R Us in Times Square and I'm sure more will be organized around the country.
Create and Share! 8 of 8
And you know what's really cool? You can create your own Disney Infinity magic and then share it with the world! For example, Disney Infinity just announced their first Toy Box challenge where you can submit your own racetrack creations which, if selected, can be shared with all Disney Infinity users. How cool is that?
