DizneyMike visited Epcot today and experienced the new Kim Possible Adventure.
My wife, Julie, and I headed over to Walt Disney World today to enjoy a cool, January day at our favorite park: Epcot. When we arrived we were surprised to see the long lines of cars waiting to pay for parking and the even longer lines at the park entrance. I was expecting the crowds to be somewhat lighter today, but I forgot this was a holiday weekend and a lot of people don't have school or work on Monday.
In any event, as we were walking in I saw a sign by Innoventions West stating that they were "now recruiting, Team Possible Agents, to save the world, as part of Disney's Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure.
We went inside and we greeted by two Kim Possible agents who explained that they were looking for guests to help Kim Possible rid the world of evil doers and wanted to know if we were up to the challenge.
Once we said we were interested they went over what to expect. The first thing is to swipe your park admission ticket to get a fastpass like card with a location (one of the World Showcase countries) and a time. You're told to report to the agents at that location for further instructions.
In our case, we were told to report to Norway at 12:45 PM. The agents there gave us a Kimmunicator, which is a GPS equipped cell phone and much, much more. She explained that our mission would last about a half hour and that all the information we needed was on the Kimmunicator.
The Kimmunicator is a really neat device that speaks your instructions to you while displaying animated characters on the device screen. You're instructed to go find clues in certain locations. In our case our entire adventure took place in the China pavilion. Besides giving instructions, the Kimmunicator interacted with objects in the China pavilion. For instance pressing a key on the device opened doors, moved objects, etc. I don't want to give specifics, as I don't want to ruin this adventure for others.
Once you've completed your mission the Kimmunicator directs you to a place where to drop off the device.
In total, there are five locations where you can begin your mission: Innoventions East, Innoventions West, as you enter the International Gateway, Norway and by the World Showcase exit to Epcot that's located between United Kingdom and France.
I was told that there are seven different adventures that you can do and that you can start them at any of the five different Kim Possible recruiting stations. There is no limit to how many adventures you do in a day.
As we were on our adventure we came across lots of families who were on their own Kim possible adventure. They were having a blast!
We really enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to complete the other six adventures. I think that Disney did a great job with this! The half hour was just about right. However, I was disappointed when it was over; I was having fun with it! The Kimmunication is high tech and pretty amazing how it interacts with various objects.
My recommendation is to go to Epcot and take part in Disney's Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure: you'll definitely enjoy yourself.
