8 Things You Need to Know About A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas at Magic Kingdom

We love this concept that Disney has added to their theme parks where they have interactive experiences in the park that the guest gets to self-guide and direct with no lines, no waiting but still a ton of fun!  A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas opened in 2013 and has been a hit for guests of all ages.  If you haven’t played this one, here are 8 things you definitely need to know about the experience:


8 – Where you will go to play.

The action takes place at Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom. All of the fun and gameplay is within this area of the park, so you won’t have to travel back and forth across all of the Magic Kingdom to play. This is a great way to spend time if you are waiting for a FastPass+ in the area or before/after a meal!

7 – What is the experience?

A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasure of the Seven Seas is one of the best ways to explore Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom. You are given a paper pirate map and RFID-chipped cards that serve as your “magic talisman.” The objective is to help find all of the Treasures of the Seven Seas and fight off various enemies that you encounter along the way. There are 5 possible quests to play, so you can continue with the fun once you complete one quest.


6 – The costs to play.

We can’t say this about much in Walt Disney World, but this is one of the things that is actually completely free. You do have to pay for your park admission to get into the Magic Kingdom, but once you are in, there are no extra costs to play and no limits as to how many times you can play. So definitely check this one out without fear that it will blow the budget.

5 – How to get started 

You will just visit the game headquarters in Adventureland. It is just past the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and across from Pecos Bills/Tortuga Tavern area. You will find a touch screen computer, and it will help get you set up and introduction and give you your map and “magic talisman.” From there, you will be able to play with your family independently and follow the directions for the adventure.


4 – How long it will take.

Each mission takes around 20 minutes to complete. If you play all 5 of them, it would take almost 2 hours to complete them all. You don’t have to play them all at once or even in the same day. You can even start and stop one of the adventures as you have time to finish it so that you can fit the fun within your day. The

3 – The 5 different maps you can play.

There are 5 different maps that you can play. They each have their own storyline and objective for you to find, so you get a different experience with each one that you play. They are:

  • A King’s Ransom
  • Blackbeard
  • Guardian’s Curse
  • Haven Defense
  • Heads You Lose


2 – Keepsakes for playing.

Each game that you play has a different “magic talisman” card that you use for the adventure. You get to keep these cards and can add them to a scrapbook or a collectible. You also get to keep the paper maps, which also make great souvenirs that could even be framed as art! You can keep an eye out for more to be introduced or added to the game in future visits to Walt Disney World.

1 – Who can play?

Everyone! There are no requirements to be able to play. Even the smallest of kids can hold the map and enjoy the experience with the help of their parents. The adventures are probably more challenging for kids than they are adults. However, it is still fun for adults to experience the interactive and immersive experience, especially if you are a fan of pirates!

About Christy Caby

Hi! I’m Christy, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. He proposed at Disney, we honeymooned at Disney, we started bringing our boys before they were born and then as early as 8 weeks old. We then continued to vacation to Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what makes more sense than just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way. I love to share this love and passion for all things Disney with the world and hope that I can help others appreciate the magic that Walt Disney World has to offer!
