A “new-to-us” experience while at the Walt Disney World Resort in July 2013 was Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure at EPCOT.
This is something the boy had been wanted to do for some time so on one of our days at EPCOT, we decided to give it a try.
The kiosks to sign up for an adventure are located either on the Odyssey Bridge between Future World and World Showcase, Norway Pavilion, Italy Pavilion, or near the International Gateway.
The boy received his F.O.N.E. and his mission at the Norway Pavilion. We had actually checked the kiosk n the Odyssey Bridge, but Agent P’s World Showcase Adventures go live at 11:00 am.
Since we were leaving Norway and heading to China, the boy chose his adventure to be in the China Pavilion.
The following Pavilions are options for the Agent P’s Adventure:
- United Kingdom
Each secret mission is to find clues and defeat Dr. Doofenshmirtz.
The missions last 30-45 minutes and at the end, secret agents are given the option to continue with another mission in another pavilion—typically the one nearby.
The F.O.N.E.’s can be returned at any kiosk and have a secret location to return in each of the pavilions containing adventures just in case you want to return the device but are far away from one of the distribution kiosks.
What was neat about the adventure is that the boy had to listen, read, and pay attention to the clues coming from the F.O.N.E. We also got to explore the China Pavilion, which is something we hadn’t done even after numerous visits to EPCOT.
Is it a bit gimmicky? Definitely. There are also bits of story in between the clues that make the adventure last longer. Personally, I would have liked to have had just the clues and get on with it. But again, that is just my opinion.
Will we do it again? Probably. This is definitely something the whole family can do together. And, again, gives you a great opportunity to explore World Showcase pavilions in more detail than you might normally.
