Guide to A Pirate's Adventure--Treasure of the Seven Seas

A Pirate's Adventure: Treasure of the Seven Seas is a new interactive game at the Magic Kingdom scheduled to open in late Spring, 2013. 

We don't know ALL the details yet, but here is what we know so far:


  • The game is free (included with admission to the Magic Kingdom)
  • There are five games, not just one. Each game should take about 20 minutes to play.
  • Each game has its own map. Players are given maps and playing cards for free
  • Home base for the game, and distribution of maps and cards, is in the little stand-alone building once home to "Crow's Nest".
  • Games are played by visiting a physical location in Adventureland and triggering an event
  • Events are triggered by holding up an RFID-enabled card to a reader, which causes a physical event to occur (a chest opens up, an animatronic panther or parrot moves and speaks, etc). 
  • Each event location is identified by a symbol.


There are 5 quests: Heads You Lose, Haven Defense, Blackbeard, The King’s Ransom, and Guardian’s Curse.

Here is my guide to the symbols:
