Phineas & Ferb with Perry The Platypus Interactive Game Coming to EPCOT

One of my pet peeves about Disney is that they build attractions with the promise of regular updates with new show or story elements, but they seldom spend the money to update the show. After a recent series of updates to various attractions, I’m going to have to shelve this particular peeve. Toy Story Midway Mania got new games (although some holiday themed games would be fun), Star Tours finally got an update, the Hall of Presidents got a whole new show, just to name a few. Yep the rules appear to have changed.

If you’ve ever played the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure in EPCOT then you know that a screen plays an important role in the game. Change the animation on the screen, a few of the real world effects around the world showcase and now you’ve got a whole new game.

That’s exactly what Disney announced today.

A Phineas and Ferb themed game called Disney Phineas & Ferb: Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure will replace the Kim Possible game. Agent P, the wily secret-agent alter-ego of Perry the Platypus and faithful pet to the title characters from Disney’s animated series “Phineas & Ferb” will take guests on a spy hunt to help stop the misguided plans of his nemesis, Dr. Doofenshmirtz.

Kim Possible hadn’t been on the air for a long time even when the interactive game was new. This sounds like a great update to the attraction and will update it again for younger audiences who are more familiar with the kids and their platypus sidekick.

Oddly, this version is something that was rumored to be coming to California Adventure, but I’m glad to see it coming to EPCOT. Perhaps it will also show up in California at some point. The switch out will happen over this summer, so if you want to get one last Kim Possible adventure in, better do it soon.

What other screen-based attractions would you like to see Disney point its magic update want next?

    Yeah, the interactive part was what got people got interested in it, whether it be kids or even the older guests. Kim Possible was a great and popular tv series but its not on disney channel anymore and people would just look at it in the park and be like “dang that Tv series is old” and the kids didnt know who the heck she was. I think changing it to today’s popular tv series is a very smart move and to be honest shouldve been the first idea instead of Kim Possible…

    I’m good with Agent P and the boys getting an adventure, but I would have kept KP in EPCOT and sent Perry to Animal Kingdom, which could really use something like this. Kim’s more international anyway, and Perry is a platypus, after all.

    Sad day for Team Possible.

    We will be there in late May, I wonder if the change will happen by then? My kids loved the Kim Possible adventure, but are HUGE fans of Phineas and Ferb and especially Perry :) So glad to hear MK isn’t the only park getting some fresh new activities!

    Seems like a new, interesting concept. I can’t wait to see how it’ll play out.

    No offense, but when you put in the entire name, “Disney Phineas & Ferb: Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure”, the word “Disney” alone just doesn’t work well right before the title and it has a rather odd ring to it. This is exactly why the “apostrophe s” is more effective. However, if we know it’s a Disney property, we probably won’t have to place the name “Disney” above or right next to a particular title. Okay, I’m done.
