Walt Disney World announces ‘A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas’ interactive quest for Adventureland

in Disney, Entertainment, Magic Kingdom, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World


Avast ye land lubbers, there be new adventures ahead at Walt Disney World. Today the Disney Parks Blog confirmed long-standing rumors of an elaborate game being installed into Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom.

The “interactive quest” is called “A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas” and will debut in Spring 2013. A single piece of concept art has been shared, offering a glimpse at park guests happily firing cannons near the Swiss Family Treehouse while others are interacting with skulls in the background.

Taking a closer look, it seems those skulls are the key to activating each individual experience, whether it’s charming a snake, talking with a row of shrunken heads, or observing something mysterious across a flame-lined pathway.

More interactive elements include a Madame Leota-style head in a crystal ball and two ships in bottles firing cannons at each other.

Of course, any or none of these specific elements may ultimately make it into A Pirate’s Adventure, seen here only as concepts.

The experience will be included with park admission and won’t require the use of cards like Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, instead utilizing a pirate map and “magic talisman” to assist Captain Jack Sparrow throughout five quests scattered in the land, with a goal of finding treasure and fighting baddies including Captain Barbossa and the Royal Navy.

Elements of the game have been slowly installed in the Magic Kingdom over the past few months, continuing until its upcoming debut. But neither the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction nor any other Adventureland locations will be closed during installation, as Imagineers work their magic in and around existing areas.

    Oh HECK YEAH!!!! Can’t wait to do this!

  2. Marshall

    Could this be a clue to the next Captain Jack movie?

  3. Dave

    The people in the concept art are downright ecstatic.

  4. Rebecca

    CAN’T WAIT! So excited!

  5. Rory

    So I guess this means that the treehouse is staying?

    Oh what big news, another interactive game in Walt Disney World that would surely stop Universal. We don’t need another game, we need rides, shows and some work done on the existing rides.

      i would say magic kingdom need more shows then anything and for me i would like to see a frontier land stunt show

    One of those skulls needs to talk and be named Murray.

    1. I still say if Jack isn’t trying to buy a used boat from a guy named Stan at the beginning of the next movie it’s the greatest missed opportunity.

  8. This will be a great addition to Disney. Some parents may be growing a wee bit tired of the Pirates series, but kids still love Capt Jack and pirates in general! How fun!

    I wanted to throw something out there to you all. I visited WDW two summer ago and loved it. But while I was at the magic kingdom I couldn’t help but wonder why hasn’t Bob Iger intiated a major overhaul of the Magic kingdom? There are so many outdated rides, e.g. Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, plus i loose count of all the theatres you sit in and watch some outdated 1980s show on a huge screen. Believe me I say this out of pure love for the place. I just felt like the park was feeling really outdated in this digital age and needed serious investment and sprucing up, or an overhaul. Not for profit, because they get that already, but for pride. In brief, rip out a lot of those super old rides, making space for new imaginition. I am aware they have done this in the new fantasyland. Now lets roll up our sleaves, open the checkbook and really start renovating!
