Wildderness Explorers at Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Animal Kingdom ® is the next park at Walt Disney World ® to gets it’s very own interactive experience. The Orlando theme park announced in January that the new adventure Wilderness Explorers will explore its way into the park this spring.

Based on the Disney ® movie “Up,” this new interactive experience brings the Wilderness Explorers adventure organization from the movie right to the park where guests will be able to complete challenges throughout the park and earn up to 30 different badges to become Wilderness Explorers (Let’s hope assisting the elderly is part of it.) Using field guides, visitors will explore Animal Kingdom ® in ways they never have before. Wilderness Explorer wannabe’s can earn up to 30 badges!

This is just the latest interactive adventure guests can experience at Walt Disney World ®. Last spring, Magic Kingdom welcomed the interactive game Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom ® that allows apprentice sorcerers the chance to eliminate the evil villains, recruited by Hades throughout the park’s many themed lands. Using special cards, which are actually magic spells, guests must search for the magic symbols that will lead them to the animated villains’ hiding places throughout Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Liberty Square and Main Street U.S.A. Once apprentices find the locations, they can use magic keys to access the villain’s hideout, and their spell cards to defeat these evil-doers. There are nine different missions to find the villains.

At Epcot ®, guests can become detectives and help Agent P from Disney’s ® animated series “Phineas and Ferb” stop the evil plans of his nemesis, Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Equipped with a cell-phone like device called a “F.O.N.E.” or Field Operative Notification Equipment, wannabe detectives will take an exciting adventure through all seven World Showcase Pavilions and search for clues and evil “Inators” to help stop Dr. Doofenshmirtz and his dastardly plans. Each pavilion offers a different mission so you can help Agent P again and again and not experience the same mission twice! Missions can last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes and are designed for groups of 2 and 4. Both interactive experiences have proven to be popular with guests, especially those who have children who watch Phineas & Ferb regularly and families who love a good adventure through Disney ® parks. And yet another interactive game coming to Magic Kingdom this spring is A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas, where it looks like kids will get a magic talisman to activate different pirate activities throughout Adventureland. If Wilderness Explorers and A Pirate’s Adventure are anything like Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom ® or Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure, they’re bound to be a big hit too!
