If you can imagine a world, believe in it! “Kingdom Hearts” is coming to Walt Disney World Resort.

Walt Disney World Resort has something for everyone, from Disney Princess fans and thrill seekers to international foodies and even video gamers. An all-new “Kingdom Hearts III” experience is coming to Disney Springs, and we bet fans of the popular games are booking their vacations ASAP.

“Kingdom Hearts” is a popular immersive video game series that merges beloved Disney characters with an adventure-filled video game world. And this month, that world is coming alive! Fans of the video games will be given the opportunity to experience the newest game in the “Kingdom Hearts” series before it is released. From December 14, 2018, through January 31, 2019, SQUARE ENIX (the company that also developed the “Final Fantasy” and “Tomb Raider” games) and Disney are bringing the magic of the “Kingdom Hearts” video games alive to the real world of Disney Springs, the popular shopping and entertainment district in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort. Disney Springs guests will be among the first to play “Kingdom Hearts III,” since it isn’t hitting stores until the end of January.

Disney fans and video game players alike love the “Kingdom Hearts” series for its action-packed, magical elements. The games take players on fantastic adventures across the worlds of Disney, Pixar, and SQUARE ENIX, bringing characters from the popular franchises together in one gaming universe. When playing the “Kingdom Hearts” games, players encounter some of their favorite characters from movies like “Toy Story,” “Monsters, Inc.,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” Big Hero 6,” “Tangled,” “Frozen,” and many more. What makes these games so special is the ability to encounter characters from different films or animation studios in one world: as you play, you can enlist help from Donald Duck, chat with Rapunzel, or go on adventures with Jack Sparrow, and it all makes perfect sense in the world of “Kingdom Hearts.” How amazing is that?


While Disney Springs visitors will get a chance to play “Kingdom Hearts III” at the pop-up event, they will also encounter several gaming elements brought to life. The experience features a Keyblade exhibit that features life-size replicas from “Kingdom Hearts III,” larger-than-life art inspired by the characters and worlds of the video game, and digital kiosks where attendees can preorder the game and merchandise before they will be released.

“Kingdom Hearts III” will be available for Xbox One and PS4 beginning January 29, 2019, so don’t miss this “Kingdom Hearts” experience before the game is released. Visit Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort from December 14, 2018, through January 31, 2019, to experience the magic of “Kingdom Hearts” as never before.
