Disney Lorcana Challenge Update

April 5, 2024 - Author: Richelle Brady

Hello Illumineers, after some additional time working with our event partners, we’re happy to announce that we will be increasing the player cap for all events! For the events in Atlanta and Lille, we will be increasing the player cap of the main event to 2048.


We are looking to resume future Challenge ticket sales as early as next week, so keep an eye out for links to additional events.

ATLANTA - Additional tickets will become available only to those on the current waitlist in waves starting this Sunday 4/7. If you are on the waitlist and chosen to purchase, you should receive an email giving you a 24-hour window to purchase a ticket. Please act quickly, as you can only purchase during that window. If you miss the window, it will become available to another player on the waitlist.

LILLE - Additional tickets will go on sale Monday at 20:00 CEST at Tournament Center’s ticket page.


For anyone attending Atlanta, we are moving the event across the street to the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC). Fans have noted that there is a convention happening in the GWCC on the same weekend, rest assured there will be clear signage for Disney Lorcana Challenge and attendees will not need to purchase any additional tickets or badges.


Now, what does that mean for the remaining events? All events will increase in size, some larger than others. At minimum we’ll be doubling the player caps, and increasing higher than that when venue capacity is possible. When the player count in a tournament is at 1025 or higher, Continental Championship qualifications and promo card prizing will scale. We will go into more detail on this when we share the final prize list.


To address feedback that tickets should only be going to those players looking to attend the event, we plan to use Melee (our tournament platform) for future event tickets to ensure all who purchase tickets are doing so with the account they're registering for the tournament with. This gives us more control over removing bad actors not only from an individual event, but future Disney Lorcana events as well. Additionally, we're cross referencing current ticket sales with Melee accounts to accomplish the same goal.



One final piece of information. Our plan has been to ramp up and build upon the Disney Lorcana Challenge over time. Due to the demand, we are accelerating some of our plans and will add a few additional events that will take place prior to the Continental Championships. More details to come.



Thank you for your patience as we've worked towards addressing this incredible demand for Disney Lorcana Challenge events. The entire team wants to do the best we can for our players, so please bear with us as we work through these early stages. We're humbled by your excitement and can't wait to see you at Disney Lorcana Challenge events this year.
