A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas to Debut at Magic Kingdom Park This Spring

posted on January 23rd, 2013 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


Pirates, ahoy!

We’re happy to share here on the Disney Parks Blog today that a new interactive quest called A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas will debut in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park this spring. (And check out this great artist rendering that our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering just shared with us!)

Artist Rendering of A Pirate's Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas by Walt Disney Imagineering

In A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas, guests will use a pirate map and magic talisman to help them complete five different pirate raids throughout Adventureland. The goal is to help locate different Treasures of the Seven Seas and fight off pirate enemies like the Royal Navy and Captain Barbossa, among others. If guests help Captain Jack succeed in all the missions, they’ll be welcomed as part of his new crew. If not, they’ll face the wrath of the cruel sea – alone.

Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more information on this new experience. In the meantime, if ye be excited to embark on this new pirate adventure, say “Aye!” in the “Comments” section below!

Aye! Very fun! The rendering looks great. I love these little magical touches that make the park feel more alive.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:27 am

It should be a really cool way to “play” in this part of the park.

David on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:07 am

Aye be excited for this new arrrrr-venture, but have yet to test me mettle in the “Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom.” So much for me hearties to do!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:27 am

Sorcerers is fun. Collecting the cards can be addicting!

Amy from NY on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:11 am

That is so exciting! I love all of these interactive games they are creating.

Sari on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:15 am

How will this be different from the Merlin Sorcerer adventure that they have now?

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:30 am

This isn’t a card-powered game. (In Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, you collect and use game cards to cast different spells on Disney villains). If you look closely at this rendering, you can probably see some of the differences this game will have to offer.

Dean on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:17 am

This looks so cool! It sounds fantastic, and the artist rendering is really cool. I say Aye!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:31 am

Aye will see you out there, as well!

6

Kristina on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:21 am

We have a trip planned the first week of March – any idea of when this will open or be previewed?

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:31 am

As soon as we know, we’ll post it on the blog.

Tracie from IL on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:22 am

OOOoooo!!!! AWESOME!!

I hope this is in place by Easter so we can try it out!!!!

8

Mark on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:28 am

Aye!

9

Amanda on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:29 am

So will this have it’s entrance near Jungle Cruise and have a gangway built underneath the Tiki Men all the way to Pirates? The rendering looks something like that to me! If so, that’s really cool!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:31 am

No word on the starting point just yet. Stay tuned!

10

Kristine from IL on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:36 am

I would do this, and I am 55!! My all time favorite attraction has been Pirates of the Caribbean, even since my first in the WAY BACK machine…..1976!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:40 am

Pirates is one of my favorites, too. I can’t wait to try it out. :)

11

Myles from UT on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:58 am

This looks awesome!!! Any word if parts of Adventureland will be closed while they add this, or will it be added during the nights when the park is closed? Thanks.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:07 am

The land will not close. :)

12

Nikki on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:03 am

Can I just say that the mom in that rendering looks way too put together and well rested to be at the MK with two kids? ;) Anyway, looking forward to checking this out!

13

Michael on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:13 am

Aye… I love it… Thanks Disney

14

Jennifer on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:25 am

Did they close any attractions (like the Treehouse) to build it? Or is it a completely new addition? I’m hoping that’s still the Treehouse to the left, but just wanted to ask.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:33 am

No, they did not close any attractions for this. “A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas” is an interactive experience that happens throughout Adventureland. You walk from place to place to complete the challenge.

15

Katie from PA on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:29 am

AYE!! I’m going in September and taking my son for the first time. I can’t wait!

16

Nathan from FL on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:47 am

Will this interfere with Sorcerers of the MK tasks that exists in Adventureland?

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:55 am

No, this is a separate game with different stops along the quest.

17

Robert on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:53 am

I was just there for the marathon and you can see some of the elements are already being put in place. My friends and I knew something pirate themed was coming!

18

Jon on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:03 am

I will play this. And I will run around as a pirate, making terrible pirate jokes or boating jokes, but you’ve got to be stern when you tell them. Otherwise people will make you bow out of telling them. Arrgh ya getting my drift?

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:06 am

Ha! I hope I run into you, Jon.

19

Chris from FL on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:27 am

So it’s going to be like the Agent P attraction at EPCOT correct?

20

Brett from IN on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:51 am

Great to see that Disney is still plussing the parks! Can’t wait to try this.

21

ellen from ON on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:04 pm

AYE! Very much looking forward to doing this with my boys this summer.

22

Jason on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:04 pm

AWESOME! With three boys, we spend a LOT of time in Adventureland. Yet another reason to stay and play even more! Can’t wait to show this to the boys.

23

Therese on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:04 pm

Aye – Heading there in March – hopefully we will be able to spy a peek.

24

Debbie on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:05 pm

Is this at Walt Disney World or Disneyland?

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:49 pm

It’s a Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World.

25

Cristina on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:06 pm

I love the idea that there are new adventure games around the park for the kids. It was starting to feel like the parks were geared strictly to the princesses and therefore the little girls in everyone’s life. I have an 8 year old boy who will be 9 when we visit in December and he is looking forward to doing the phineas and ferd adventure as well as the sorcerer adventure in Magic kingdom… This new game is right up his alley!!! Thank you Disney for remembering the boys!!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:51 pm

I have a son and can’t wait to experience this with him.

26

shannon on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:06 pm

Is this a similar type to the old Kim Possible at Epcot?

27

Robin on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:10 pm

We are going in Feb. wish it was up and running then. But will have to wait until the next time we go.

My son loves to play the Sorcerers of the Magic game. And they want to try the one in Epcot.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:53 pm

I’ve heard nothing but good things about Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure at Epcot. :)

28

Erin on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:10 pm

So THIS is what they took out the little boats over by Jungle Cruise for. When we were there in December there were several spots in Adventureland that had the under construction signage up. You could start to see some things being put in place, including what I now assume are those awesome pirate cannons.

29

Thomas on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:12 pm

Aye! My family will there this summer! Can’t wait.

30

Marici on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:13 pm

Aye!
Spring? Which month?

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:53 pm

No official opening date has been announced yet. We’ll let you know ASAP.

31

Virgil on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:14 pm

This sounds like it’ll be a lot like the Perry/Phineas & Ferb adventures in Epcot, is that correct? I sure hope so, because my kids and I had a ton of fun with that back in December

32

Traci on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:20 pm

Aye! I like the idea of an adventure throughout the land and not just walking ride to ride. I think it makes the park a little more “magical” to get even more submersed in the land. Looking forward to our vacation in September even more now!

33

Christopher from TN on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:21 pm

its a pirates life for me Gibbs —- SAVVY

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:57 pm

Savvy!

34

Jeff on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:24 pm

Aye!!! This sounds like an adventure not for the light hearted! No lily livered land lovers are welcome on this adventure. Arrrrgggh, this shivers me timbers mateeeeees!

35

Tonya on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:57 pm

Aye! We are scheduled to be there early May, hope it’s ready then!

36

MARK from PA on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:59 pm

Aye!!! This will be a fun adventure for ye in disney. Arrrgggh, ye have fun with Capt’n Jack and the Black Pearl.

37

David from GA on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:18 pm

I would sooooo love to go and be apart of this, but I am in the Military stationed in Germany. Will this still be going on next year??

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:58 pm

There’s no end-date for this experience.

38

Rob from OH on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:32 pm

Aye, we are coming in March, will it be open then ????

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 3:58 pm

We should know more soon about opening dates.

39

Aaron on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:02 pm

Looks great. Can’t wait to try this in June!

40

Tim on January 23rd, 2013 at 3:08 pm

Will your “talisman” be linked to your Magic Band or will it be a separate item?

Is this part of the reason why Shrunken Ned’s were removed?

41

Allie on January 23rd, 2013 at 3:08 pm

This sounds AWESOME! :) Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favorite movies, and I love the interactive adventures at Disney World, so this will be perfect! I’m already a big fan of Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, and I used to love the Kim Possible game at Epcot (I haven’t tried the new Phineas and Ferb version yet, but I don’t watch that show, so I don’t know if I’ll like it as much). Since you also just announced the Wilderness Explorers thing in Animal Kingdom, it seems like there’s a new trend of these interactive games spread throughout the parks.

42

Mary from MN on January 23rd, 2013 at 4:28 pm

Aye! SO SO SO excited for all the new interactive activities that have been announced.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 4:43 pm

This one is going to be a lot of fun.

43

Paul from IL on January 23rd, 2013 at 4:50 pm

Aye! I cannot wait to do this when we get back in November 2014. Sounds like a lot of fun.

44

Christina on January 23rd, 2013 at 5:14 pm

Aye! I hope A Pirate’s Adventure will be ready for our visit in April as I have a five-year old who loves Captain Jack!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:21 pm

Aye, aye!

45

Sandra from GA on January 23rd, 2013 at 5:56 pm

Aye!!! We noticed the old mini boats that used to be outside of Jungle Cruise were gone, and I told my kids, “Maybe they are making way for something better!” Looks like they WERE!!! Can’t wait!

46

Philip on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:39 pm

Another Aye! :)

47

Scott from WA on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:40 pm

Hey there, I have a question: Do you think or know if this attraction will be around long enough to feature a tie-in with the upcoming “Pirates of the Caribbean 5″? Or is it a limited attraction? (Pirates 5 is expected July of 2015)

48

Candee on January 23rd, 2013 at 7:08 pm

Oh, I’m SO HOPING they do a preview the last week of Feb! My 42 year old hubby and turning-5-that-week-in-Disneyworld daughter LOVE the Pirates (and she loved doing the sorcerer’s game). I’m glad the Sorcerer experience isn’t being replaced!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 23rd, 2013 at 7:46 pm

Sounds like that would be great for him. Keep checking back for news on openings.

49

Sarah on January 23rd, 2013 at 7:47 pm

Aye, very good indeed!

50

Henry from LA on January 23rd, 2013 at 8:12 pm

I’m 62 and my wife is 59 and we are huge
POTC fans. You’re never to old for a Pirates Life!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on January 24th, 2013 at 9:02 am

I agree! I’ve always loved the attraction and the films just made me a bigger fan. :)
