Secret Agent for a Day

| February 1, 2009

My daughter and I got to be Secret Agents yesterday with the Kim Possible team.  We took part in the adventure at Epcot in the Walt Disney World resort.

There are several kiosks where you can start your World Showcase Adventure.  We started at Innoventions in Future World.  Cast members are at every kiosk if you have any questions.  They walked us to a screen where we need to swipe our park ticket.  You are asked how many people will be participating.  They encourage us to share a Kimmunicator.

We received a pass that required us to go to Norway at a certain time to start our adventure. When we arrived a Cast member asked us if we were familiar with Kim Possible and her team. You really can do this even if you are not. They encourage us to share a Kimmunicator,  a cell phone.  You are told to step away from the area and listen to the instructions on the phone.  It was very easy to use but they had a help button if you weren’t sure how to use the device.

I wasn’t sure how this was going to work and wasn’t very excited until we started getting clues. Our first adventure was in China.  We were told when we approached the country to hit the ok button on the Kimmunicator. We started receiving clues and we headed into the China pavilion.  I think it helps if you are familiar with the countries but they do provide visual clues to get you to the right place.  We were blown away with how they hid things in the countries.  If you weren’t participating you would never know there was a game going on around you.  When we got to this certain statue it did something totally unexpected. My daughter was walking around talking about how awesome this was.  When we hit our second clue again what happened was totally unexpected!!

If you decide you need to take a break while you are taking part in this experience it isn’t a problem.  We stopped for lunch and then resumed with no problems.  All too soon our adventure in China was over. They have a cleverly disguised drop box where you leave your Kimmunicator. We couldn’t wait to do another country!

We went to Italy and were told we could start immediately on another adventure.  Our next adventure was in Germany.  If you aren’t sure what the clue means you do have a button to replay it.  We had fun with this in the shops in Germany.  I am not going to give it away but we were laughing by the time we came out of the first shop.  I am sure there were quite a few shoppers wondering what was going on.  We went through several shops and one clue was out in the courtyard.  We saw lots of folks doing the adventure in Germany.

I can’t praise Disney enough for this new adventure.  It was awesome.  The clues they have scattered around are genius!!!  If you aren’t taking the adventure it takes nothing away from your Epcot experience. If you are a fan of the little details at Walt Disney World you will be amazed.

Make a beeline to a kiosk when you get to Epcot if you are looking for something different to do at the parks.  You can still have time to ride the attractions and time to hunt the villians with Team Possible.  I know we will be back to do this quite often.

    Thanks Kathy. My girls are going to absolutely love this. Maggie(dd11)and Evie(dd8)are big Kim Possible fans, and they also love scavenger hunts. They also do not really like the World Showcase, and this will allow us to go there. I know they are going to be excited about this one. Great blog and pictures.

    So how long did it take you?

  • Kathy Werling

    Maybe a half hour in each country. If you weren’t familiar with a country I think it would take longer.

    I didn’t give away any of the secrets but you will love it and wonder how they did them!!!!

  • UrsulasShadow

    I’ve heard wonderful things about this attraction, and now you’ve confirmed it. I’m not a Kim Possible fan, but it looks like you don’t have to be to enjoy this.

    Anyone up for a go at it pre-cruise?

  • mommyceratops

    Sounds cool! I can’t wait to try it…whenever that maybe?
    Thanks!

  • mazzy

    We are going to WDW in April and my teens would love this. I’m wondering if I will be able to join in though, as I’m partially deaf. Does the ‘phone show the clues in text or is it just verbal? Thanks.

  • georgemoe

    Thanks for the report Kathy and not giving away too much detail. Do you have to play this with mittens? ;^)

  • Kathy Werling

    That would be my lovely daughters hand. :) She was cold.

  • cocowum

    Sounds like an awesome experience! We can’t wait to try it!

  • mazzy

    Hi, I’d be really grateful if someone could reply to my previous question. (No.6 above) Thanks :D

  • Kathy Werling

    Mazzy, they showed a picture on the screen but you really needed to hear the clue. I would imagine that Disney has a way for those that can’t hear the clues to play. The next time I go over I will ask.

  • mazzy

    Thanks Kathy, my children and hubby are hearing, so it’s just me. They could always relay the info to me, but it’s a lot easier if I can do it for myself. We don’t go until April, so that would be great if you could check it out for me, thanks. :D

    Kathy, you must have been there when we were there, MLK week, when the highs were in the 50s, hence the mittens. We’re from the Seattle area and it was cold!

    We were able to do the KP missions during the soft opening and thought that they were a blast! DD(7) had a great time with them as well as nephew (8). We did China, UK, France, Japan, and Mexico missions. The Imagineers did a fabulous job with integrating the missions in the countries so that unless you were doing the missions you did not notice them.

  • greens_in_wa

    RE comment 6. I remember that they did subtitles for all the Kimmunicator instuctions

  • mazzy

    Re comment 14. Thanks so much for that, so I don’t need to request anything special, I will be OK with what they give us?

  • greens_in_wa

    For the most part you will be fine. However, our mission in Mexico had a talking parrot and I don’t remember if that dialogue was on the phone (we were busy watching the parrot). I would let the CMs that are handing out the phones that you are HI so that they can give you a mission that minimizes the lack of closed captioning on the phone. I want to say our China was all on the phone and that Japan just had a couple of sound effects.

  • mazzy

    greens_in_wa – Thanks so much for that information, that’s really helpful. :D I haven’t told my teens about this, as we’ve been 10 times now so I thought I’d surprise them with something new! :D

  • Kathy Werling

    We went back and did the France, UK and Japan today. I still think Germany is my favorite.

    We asked about hearing impaired users. They said you could hold the phone up close to your ear or just read the subtitles.

    I love the one surprise in France. Pretty clever.

  • mazzy

    Ah thanks for checking for me Kathy, that’s great that I can join in, I’m really looking forward to it now! :D So how many different ones are there altogether?

  • 1000th happy haunt

    Who were the villains in all the countries you did?

  • Kathy Werling

    I didn’t pay attention to the names of the villians.

  • chapmanfam98

    My 8 year old daughter did this four times when we were there in January. She did Norway, China, UK and France. Is was definitely her favorite part of the trip! Disney hit a home run with this one!

    Yay! Kim Possible! My daughters and I love Kim Possible. We’ve been deprived since the series ended production. I can’t wait to do this. My question is,”Will I get have Kim’s figure and have my spy suit look as good as hers?”
