Rumors across the Disney theme park community were confirmed today as Disney Parks officially announced on their blog that "Disney's Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure" at the World Showcase at Epcot in Walt Disney World Resort in Florida will be retooled this summer as "Disney's Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure." Previously mentioned in an interview Tom Staggs, chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts, the official announcement comes after remarks made today by Walt Disney Company CEO Robert Iger at the annual Disney shareholder meeting in Kansas City, Missouri, when asked if the Disney theme parks were going to add more to appeal to young boys who visit. "We are hard at work at figuring out ways that we can bring Phineas and Ferb in particular into our parks", Mr. Iger responded. "It's one of the most popular animated shows on television today. It has a very large boy audience- and girl audience, by the way- and we think there are some great opportunities there."
Available at seven of the eleven countries at Epcot's World Showcase, the World Showcase Adventures allow guests to use a cell phone as a "Kimmunicator" to receive clues from the characters from Kim Possible as they search for triggers to visual surprises. Given as Kim Possible ended its run on Disney Channel five years ago and its creators, Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle, are now at the award-winning DreamWorks Animation/Nickelodeon production The Penguins of Madagascar, perhaps it's not surprising that one of Disney's first steps in bringing their current hit to the parks as Iger suggested they would is to have Dr. Doofenshmirtz step in for Dr. Drakken and take over the World Showcase (in addition to the tri-state area). Visitors to Epcot will neither have to call or beep Agent P in order to reach him, but either way, they'll be using a special cell to help the platypus save the world starting this summer.
