Perry the Platypus Needs Your Help!

Perry the Platypus’s alter ego Agent P is looking for volunteers for unpaid internships to help him foil Dr. Doofenshmirtz who is up to no good while he is vacationing thru seven countries. Perry is nearby but is locked up in his carrier with his step brothers Phineas and Ferb, and needs assistance until he can get loose.





This is the premise of the new Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure located at Epcot which replaces the former kid’s adventure, Kim Possible.

Volunteers can sign up at 4 kiosks located at the Odyssey Bridge, the International Gateway Bridge, Norway and Italy. The mission is free and all you need to join the ranks is present a Key to the World Card. You will then be handed a FONE (Field Operatives Notification Equipment) which is a small flip phone with a screen.

New recruits will get to choose their agent name…my son chose Agent N for Nicholas. You will also be assigned a country for your mission and a time to report for duty!

There are currently adventures available in 7 of the 11 countries in World Showcase with more to follow in the coming months. The cast member at the sign up location will let you know what countries are available for missions. The country of your mission will be determined by availability. During peak mission times, you may only be able to choose from 1 or 2 countries. Agents assignments are done to keep things evenly spread out so you don’t have all the agents in one country at one time.

We trailed Dr. Doofenshmirtz thru Germany first. Clues are given on your FONE screen which will either show you a picture of exactly where to go and stand, or it will give you verbal instructions on where to go. In the Christmas shop, a nutcracker revealed 4 letters that had to be keyed into the FONE for the next clue and a stop by the outside miniature train village center square revealed another. We were hot on his tail through the crystal shop, the teddy bear shop and then located a clue painted on a building. When we finally caught up with Dr. Doofenshmirtz, we were the least of his worries as a lovely maiden in a clock tower was chasing him with a broom. Mission accomplished!

Later in the day we did a mission in Norway that included having a hidden camera taking your picture and sending it to the FONE and finding a cast member by Maelstrom to say a secret code to, and then he would hand you a card with a code for your next clue.

Agent P is a lot of fun for both kids and adults. It’s free and a nice break for the kids who might not appreciate World Showcase like grownups do. Since there are 7 different countries and the missions usually take 30 minutes or less, parents don’t need to worry about a mission consuming a large portion of the day.  You can even include doing missions as part of your plan for the day!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T.

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
