Have you watched a reality television show called The Amazing Race? Teams of contestants travel all over the world, solving puzzles and performing tasks, which lead to more puzzles and tasks. During a single season, the teams could go to more than a half dozen countries, such as to Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Japan, France, and the UK. Most weeks, one team is eliminated. At the end of the season, the winning team gets a million dollars.


You can do something similar, and you don’t even need a passport. You can solve puzzles and perform tasks in Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Japan, France, and the UK. All at World Showcase!

Only your adventure won’t be based on The Amazing Race. It will be based on a different TV show, Kim Possible.

And—sorry—you can’t win a million dollars. Then again, nobody will make you do a bungie jump from a high bridge. And you won’t be eliminated. But you can save the world from a dastardly super-villain—and the satisfaction from that is worth more than a million dollars.

Now recruiting

First you need to find a recruiting station. That’s easy. At Future World, head to Innoventions East, Innoventions West, or the main path to World Showcase. In World Showcase, you can find recruiting stations in Norway and near the International Gateway.

Recruiting station at on the path between Future World and World Showcase

The biggest recruiting station is where the bridge to the Odyssey Center meets the main walkway.

It’s easy

Signs at the recruiting center explain what you’ll do:

  1. Sign up here to get your Mission Pass.
  2. Report to a top secret Team Possible station at the time printed on your Mission Pass.
  3. Receive your mission assignment and Kimmunicator.
  4. Work with Team Possible to find clues in your assigned country.
  5. Defeat the villain. Save the world… No big!

So swipe your ticket for your mission pass. It’s like getting a FASTPASS. Your mission pass will be for one of seven countries. But if you have a preference, ask a cast member for help. They’re some of the friendliest cast members in the whole park, and they have a magic way to pick a specific country. If it looks as if it might rain, consider asking for Mexico because the adventure is indoors.

Go to Norway

You received a mission pass for Norway.

Perhaps you’re wondering why there are no Team Possible assignments at Italy, the American Adventure, Morocco, or Canada. Apparently these countries don’t have the kinds of super-villains that Kim Possible needs to defeat.

Top secret Team Possible station at the UK

Go to the correct field station at your designated time. Trade in your mission pass for an electronic device—and begin fighting crime.

Camille Leon, the villain at Norway

Different villains have been seen in each country:

  • Mexico – Dr. Drakken and Shego
  • Norway – Camille Leon
  • China – Monkey Fist
  • Japan – Killer Bebe
  • France – Señor Senior Jr.
  • Germany – Professor Dementor
  • UK – Duff Killigan

At Norway, you’ll need to defeat cat food heiress Camille Leon, who uses her shapeshifting ability for her evil plans.

A phone that’s not a phone

Your device looks like a Verizon Wireless flip-phone. But it’s actually a Kimmunicator. You can’t make phone calls with it. You can only save the world.

Kim’s communication guru Wade

Wade, the ten-year-old college graduate who invented the Kimmunicator, first provides gadget training. You’ll learn that you can press the help button if you need help, hints, or more detailed instructions. As the animated Wade guides you through your adventure, he’s joined by Ron Stoppable and even Kim Possible herself.

Reading a “Norse Code” smoke message for “Smoke Signals”

Camille Leon is the mastermind behind fur thefts from the Viking Museum. To solve the crime, you’ll complete five assignments in Norway: “Model Behavior,” “Smoke Signals,” “Dress Code,” “Framed,” and “Clothes Call.”

Do exactly what Wade tells you to do. Use various features of your Kimmunicator, including its keypad and camera. Observe carefully and have fun!

Talking to the Maelstrom greeter for “Dress Code,”

After you successfully complete all the assignments, Wade reports, “Good job, Team Possible! The furs were returned to the museum, and from now on, the only thing Camille’s gonna be modeling is prison stripes.”

Now it’s time for your final assignment: depositing your Kimmunicator into a designated receptacle.


Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure had its grand opening at Epcot on January 28, 2009. Its final day was May 18, 2012.

From June 7, 2002 to September 7, 2007, the Disney Channel carried the television series on which the attraction was based. In other words, the attraction opened more than a year after the animated series ended its run.

“Unpaid Internships Available Now”

Just four weeks after Kim Possible departed from Epcot, Disney Phineas and Ferb: Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure had its soft opening. The official opening was June 23, 2012.

It was again based on a successful Disney Channel series. Phineas and Ferb began its long television run on August 17, 2007.

Francis Monogram on the F.O.N.E.

Agent P is the secret-agent alter ego of Perry the Platypus, the pet of title characters Phineas and Ferb. The evil villain is scientist Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.

Epcot guests can defeat Doofenshmirtz in seven different adventures. The new interactive adventure reuses the same props and effects at the same World Showcase countries. You no longer use a Kimmunicator. You now use a F.O.N.E. (for Field Operative Notification Equipment).

Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure hasn’t really gone to Yesterland. It’s had a character transplant.
