Walt Disney World Interactive Adventure Activities
A Pirate’s Adventure ~ Treasures of the Seven Seas
Ahoy! The Magic Kingdom has a treasure! Join Captain Jack Sparrow to search for the hidden treasure in Adventureland.
Location: Adventureland in Magic Kingdom
Where to Start: Begin at the Crow’s Nest in Adventureland. This can be found just past Pirates of the Caribbean as you walk toward Frontierland.
What to do: There are five separate missions that take approximately 20 minutes each. Each mission requires a special card that buccaneers get at the Crow’s Nest. You will need this to read each map. Missions include racing Captain Barbossa to treasure, collecting ingredients for a spell and battling Blackbeard. Finding each piece of the treasure means you get to be a part of Captain Jack’s crew. You can complete as many missions as you wish, and can start again at another time if you need a break.
