This looks like so much fun! Another interactive experience coming to the parks to add on to the list of Agent P in Epcot and Sorcerer's of the MK (in MK of course! LOL), wonder what will come to the Studios??

Sonya, I think you should get a job in Imagineering! Great ideas! :) We were watching videos from some of our earlier trips and one of them included the girls visiting the Kidcot stops in AK (or whatever they were called there) - we had a lot of fun with them too but I don't think they've been active in recent years - my nephew and cousin's DD would have had fun with them. So this is a great way to update what's there!

This sounds like a much needed overhaul of the kidcot type stations that were at AK. My girls loved those. They were "hosted" by Timon & Pumba, you got a little explorer book and there was a station in each area. At each station there was a CM with an activity - I remember a log with replica bugs in Camp Minnie Mickey, a backyard biome at Conservation Station, something about fossils I think over in Dinoland..... When the kids completed the task, they were given a stamp in their book. Once they had all the stamps they went to one of the bigger gift shops near the Tree of Life and received an award. For the studios? hmmmmm they could do a spinoff of the whole spy thing from Cars 2 (of Spy Kids - though it's outdated), or Woody's quest to find Andy, a Muppet caper would be awesome. What about Wreck It Ralph - he has an adventure doesn't he? National Treasure would be really cool, but that would be even better done as a cross park thing where you get clues from different areas of all 4 parks.

That sounds like the kind of thing my DD would really get into. Wonder if they'll have it going by April...
