7 New Disney Themed Board Games For Your Next Game Night


With so many of us not able to visit a Disney theme park as often as we’d like to, it’s important to find ways to bring the Disney magic to us instead. One of my favorite ways to do so is by infusing Disney with virtually everything possible in my life – including our weekly game night with friends and family. And because Disney is such a recognizable brand, there are no shortage of Disney board game options to choose from. 

There are Disney themed remakes of classic board games like Monopoly or Clue, to one-of-a-kind games that perfectly feature any number of Disney characters. In this post I focus on the more unique games rather than the classic ones you’ve already heard of. All of the games on this list are also new games released in 2020, or within the last 2-3 years, so you’re sure to find something new that you’ve not yet tried and might be the next game night hit!

The Best Unique and One-Of-A-Kind Disney Themed Board Games

These games are not just a remake of Monopoly, like some of the others I will share further on in this article. Instead, these board games are fresh opportunities to learn a new game. These games are my favorite to play with a group of friends, some drinks, and possibly some Disney themed snacks to go with?!

1. Disney Villainous

This game was the Game of the Year Winner at the TOTY Awards in 2019 and 2020 – so you can be sure that this is a well-loved game. In Disney Villainous, you get to play as the villain with each villain having their own game board, card decks, and goal. This game is known for being easy to learn, with clear instructions, and fun for the biggest Disney fans down to the Disney grumps. 

2. Toy Story Obstacles and Adventures

  • Estimated 30-90 Min Play Time
  • 2-5 Players
  • Ages 8+

In this cooperative deck building game players work together as their favorite Disney Pixar Toy Story characters to enlist the help of friends, conquer hazards, and complete adventures before the bad guys can alter the end of the story. I think one of the most unique aspects of this game is that the game essentially teaches you how to play, as you are playing it! That means it’s easy to pick up and ensures everyone will enjoy playing the game. 

3. Hocus Pocus: The Game

  • Estimated 30 Min Play Time
  • 2-4 Players
  • Ages 8+

In this cooperative card game, players work together to protect Salem’s children and stop the Sanderson sisters from completing their wicked potion before the sun rises. Play potion ingredients to the team cauldron and match all the colors or ingredients. The catch is that you are trying to use the right ingredients, but you can’t tell your teammates what ingredients you have – which makes the game much more difficult, and much more fun! This game is quick and easy to play, but hard to win; which makes it a game that most everyone will enjoy. 

4. Codenames: Disney Family Edition

  • Estimated 15 Min Play Time
  • 2-8+ Players
  • Ages 8+

View on Amazon

This is the Disney version of the original Codenames game that became an instant success in the board game community when it was released because it’s such a fun party game that is really easy to pick up quickly. The game includes pictures and words, and the goal is for each team to guess the cards for their team based on the clues given by their appointed team clue-master. Each round of the game is pretty fast, so it enables everyone to get a turn being the clue master! With the simple nature of this game, everyone is sure to love it, from young kids to your uncle who hates Disney.

5. Funko Disney The Haunted Mansion – Call of The Spirits Board Game

  • Estimated 30 Min Play Time
  • 2-6 Players 
  • Ages 9+

View on Amazon

This brand new game released in late 2020 is a fun strategy game based on the ever popular Haunted Mansion ride. This game has a unique board with a rotating centerpiece, allowing your game piece to explore several rooms of the Haunted Mansion attempting to collect sets of cards which are worth varying points. All while trying to avoid the Hitchhiking Ghosts which could cause you to lose points! I suggest this game for your next game night because it feels truly unique, and unlike many other games I’ve played before. 

6. Kingdom Hearts Talisman

  • Estimated 90+ Min Play Time
  • 2-6 Players 
  • Ages 13+

View on Amazon

Fans of the Kingdom Hearts franchise will love this new board game released in late 2020 (as will Disney and board game fans alike). In this game you can take on the roles of classic Kingdom Hearts characters like Sora, Kairi, Riku, King Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and more as you gain experience and magic items on your journey to the center of the board to try to seal the Door to Darkness. This game takes longer to play than others on this list, so it’s a great option if you’re looking for something to really sink your teeth into on your next game night. And as an added bonus, the game also comes with 11 really cool custom sculpted figures of each character.

7. Color Brain: Disney Edition

  • Estimated 20 Min Play Time
  • 2-20 Players 
  • Ages 8+

View on Amazon 

While many of the games on this list are kid friendly, the new Disney Edition of Color Brain is by far the most kid-friendly option of them all. However, that doesn’t mean that adults will be bored playing either. It’s a fun trivia based party game that can be played with up to 20 people and the twist is that all of the answers are colors. It is a really simple game concept that is addicting to play. And the questions range from easy to obscure so there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Plus it’s the cheapest game on this list, making this game a no-brainer for your next game night.
