Disney Infinity is a constantly evolving gaming experience. Each year we see a new and updated version of the game hit the market with new and exciting game play features, characters, Playsets, and more. Compatibility between the versions of Infinity is often something that can confuse new players and puzzle experienced users.
Here is our handy guide on Disney Infinity Compatibility between the existing versions of the game. The main three gameplay components of Disney Infinity are it’s figures, the Playset worlds and the power disc accessories. Each of these continue to evolve with the introduction of new versions of Infinity. Here is a graphic showing the forward compatibility of each version of our favorite game.
Figures in general are 100% Forward Compatible with each evolving version of Disney Infinity’s Toy Box. So any of your 1.0 figures can be used in the following 2.0, 3.0, ect… Toy Box creations.

Power Discs are 100% Forward Compatible in Disney Infinity’s Toy Box. There is no backwards compatibility with Power Discs. Discs are separated into three different categories, Ability Discs (red round discs with a star icon), Customization Discs (purple hexagonal discs with a brush icon), and Toy Discs (orange hexagonal discs with a ball icon).
1.0 Power Discs – Ability discs enhanced certain features or stats of figures. Toy Discs were primarily weapons (guns / swords) and vehicles (animal mount / cars). Customization discs paired for each IP with a Skydome and Texture Disc.
2.0 Power Discs (Marvel & Disney Original) – Ability discs were upgraded with two new types, Team-Ups, Costumes & Special Attack. Team-Up discs drop a NPC team mate into the game to fight along side the player. Special Attack discs allow the player to drop devastating large radius attacks. Both these disc types require a charge up which takes approximately 7 min. Costume Discs change the look of certain figures and add a bonus to one of their stats.
3.0 Power Discs (Star Wars & Disney Original)– The round discs have been upgraded again to now include defensive abilities vs. the Attack Only discs in 2.0. Galactic Team Up discs now feature characters from the Star Wars Universe.
Playsets have continued to evolve and grow with each version of the game that releases. New tools, mechanics, and styles are added with the continued development. All that growth is what keeps Playsets from being compatible in either direction, all Playsets can only be played in the version of the game they were released for. There is no forward or backwards compatibility.
While the Playsets themselves are not forward compatible, the Toy Box unlockables are! Place any previous version Playset onto the portal while in the Toy Box of any future versions to unlock all the Toy Box toys for building and fun!
1.o Playsets – Toy Story, Pirates of the Caribbean, Monsters Inc, The Lone Ranger, and Cars are all featured with their own Playset in the original Disney Infinity.
2.0 Playsets – The Avengers, Spiderman, and Gaurdians of the Galaxy are featured as playsets in the 2.0 release of Disney Infinity.
