Sora's world is shattered when a violent storm hits his home, and is seperated from his two closest friends. The storm scatters the three to unknown worlds. At the same time, there is turmoil in the Disney Castle. King Mickey is missing, and Court Wizard Donald and Captain Goofy are out to find him. On their travels they meet Sora, on his own search for his lost friends. The three are told of ominous creatures called Heartless, being without hearts derived from an unknown dimension and are the ones responsible for the devastating storm. The Disney villians, enticed by the power of darkness, manipulate the Darkness to help them gather the princesses of heart, who are needed to open a mysterious final door. Upon discovering the link between the Heartless, the storm, and the disappearance of King Mickey, Sora, Donald, and Goofy join forces and help familiar Disney heroes to save their worlds from the Heartless.

Did You Know?
According to Mandy Moore
, her character was originally named "Aeris", which is the name the character had in the English version of Final Fantasy VII. When she went in to record her part, the name was changed to "Aerith", which is the character's original Japanese name. From the Japanese transliteration for Earth (Earisu, there being no "th" in Japanese writing), the previous use of Aeris results form the way it sounds in Japanese ("Air-ris"). See more
The Clock Tower in Neverland (the Big Ben in London) is considered part of the world of Neverland itself, even housing Neverland's Keyhole, although it is clearly a separate world within the context of the Peter Pan
story. See more
I've been having these weird thoughts lately... like is any of this for real or not?
While the credits are rolling you see scenes of various Disney characters and characters from the game, including the "missing" characters of Riku and King Mickey. After the credits are finished you see Sora, Donald, and Goofy walking along a path wondering if they'll ever see Riku and King Mickey again. See more
Some scenes in the game will be different if you complete levels in different sequences.
- If you defeat Maleficent before defeating Cerberus in the Olympus Coliseum, she will not appear in the cut-scene with Hades.
- If you complete Hollow Bastion before Monstro, Riku will not help you in the battle against Parasite Cage or have as much dialogue with Sora.
- If Deep Jungle is completed before Wonderland's keyhole is sealed, Snow White will appear in the scene with the villains (instead of Alice).
