Debuting on June 2 2013, Wilderness Explorers is a scavenger hunt similar to A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom. There is no additional cost to participate.
Willing adventurers pick up a Handbook on the bridge that connects the Oasis and Discovery Island in front of the Tree of Life or one of the other signup locations:
The activity usually runs from 10am through regular Park close.
The handbook also includes a map with the locations of each of the 31 activities.
Explorers visit each location where they’ll interact with a cast member and complete a task in exchange for a badge (sticker).
Each task takes about five minutes and takes guests to parts of Animal Kingdom that they might not otherwise visit.
It’s a lot of fun for kids in particular, but adults with an adventurous spirit enjoy it too. The Handbook makes a great, “free” souvenir.
