Is Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom a time drain?

Walt Disney World: How much time to complete the levels?

From Terry O'Neal

Thanks to the TPI article about this new interactive adventure, I'd like to work some time into our schedule to play Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom with my 9 year old son. I can't find much information about it, though. I have a few questions, if I could get some help?
1) Each park ticket gets 5 cards to use. Is that 5 per day? Does a kid need all of the cards or would he be fine with a days worth?
2) How many interactive exhibits are there? Is there one just for each villain, or are dozens of clues along the way?
3) Is this something we can work in along the way throughout the day, or should we set aside time just to defeat the bad guys? If we should set some time aside, how much should we need?

Thanks for any help you guys have for me.

You can get up to 5 cards per ticket, per day. For a child playing on easy you really don't need more than 5 cards to play and win against the villain. It makes it fun to have more because you can trade with other players waiting but you don't need more on the easy setting you start on.

**Edit: There are around 5 portals in every participating land but you can go the same portals multiple times and see different villains or parts of the same villain story. There is Cruella on Main Street; Ursula, Maleficent, and Chernabog in Fantasyland; Scar, Yzma, and Jafar in Adventureland; and Ratcliffe and Dr. Facilier in Liberty Square/Frontierland.

The game itself on easy only takes like 30 minutes to play one villain. At that point you are given the option to either stop there for the day and pick it up another time or continue to another land with another villain. If there are long lines for the portals one villain on easy could take over an hour but you don't have to continue immediately, you can stop and pick it back up whenever you want.

As a tip if you want more cards to play with (not trade) you can find them online and print them out on card stock. If you cut them out they work the same way for the game (as long as you have at least one real card with the back to show if needed) but you can't trade them.
