The Tower Challenge (Nightmare Before Christmas) Event 2018 is the sixteenth major event of Disney Magic Kingdoms, and the third Tower Challenge event. It started on 18th October 2018 and ended on 2nd November 2018.

  • Chapter 2: 23rd October - 28th October

Maleficent's Tower is powered by three mysterious Crystals. Throughout the course of the three Chapters, you will need to deactivate the Crystals by "Challenging the Tower." Deactivate as many Crystals as you can to defeat Maleficent's Tower.

Challenging the Tower will earn you Event Points which will fill a progress bar. As it fills, you will earn milestone rewards. Fill it completely, and you will deactivate one of three mysterious Crystals. Event Points will also help you rank higher on the leaderboards giving you a chance to win even more rewards!


This event uses the limited time currency, Maleficent Coins (Update-20-m-currency).

Any Maleficent Coins a player has remaining are converted to Gems (40 max.) at the end of the event.

Players can earn more than M-gem35 Gems by Leveling Up The Mayor and completing quests during the event.
