Disney Parks Blog initially announced the debut of DuckTales World Showcase Adventure in 2019, inviting Guests to join Scrooge McDuck, Donald, nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Launchpad, and Webby in search of priceless treasures using the Play Disney Parks mobile app.  During the experience, Guests would take a trip around World Showcase, discovering exotic destinations, exciting mysteries, and maybe even a few thieves, villains, and supernatural guardians of ancient artifacts.

While this fun experience was put on hold due to the COVID-19 closures at Walt Disney World, Disney recently revived the excitement for the project, stating that it would arrive at EPCOT as part of its 40th-anniversary celebrations. The latest update finally revealed the arrival date for this exciting interactive project, arriving at the Orlando theme park this week!
