Kim Possible Adventure at Epcot.

During a recent visit to Epcot in Walt Disney World Florida, my daughter’s and I decided to try the ‘Kim Possible Adventure’ although we are all adults it was one of the highlights of our trip, I would recommend it to any age, particularly families with children, it’s a great way to visit the different Pavilions, adding more interest to your World Showcase experience. It is easy to follow once you have picked up your ‘Kimmunicator’ which will show you areas and objects you probably wouldn’t have been aware of before, whilst solving your secret mission!
