What’s New

A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas To Debut This Spring

An interactive pirate quest will debut at Magic Kingdom® Park at the Walt Disney World® Resort this spring. In A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas, you will use a pirate map and magic talisman to complete five different pirate raids throughout Adventureland. The goal is to help locate different Treasures of the Seven Seas and fight off pirate enemies like the Royal Navy and Captain Barbossa, among others. If you help Captain Jack succeed in all the missions, they’ll be welcomed as part of his new crew. If not, they’ll face the wrath of the cruel sea – alone.
