MouseAdventure is a popular and fun quest–based event produced by MousePlanet and held twice a year at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California.
In the late-1990s, former staff member Kevin Yee created an ambitious game he called “ADD–Quest” (for the alt.disney.disneyland Usenet newsgroup). Basing it loosely on Disney's “Minnie's Moonlit Madness” cast member event, Kevin almost singlehandedly developed the core elements of this multi-faceted, puzzle–and–hunt game. Brought under the organizational umbrella of MousePlanet, the first official MouseAdventure debuted in Spring 2000.
MouseAdventure is continually evolving, and you are likely to encounter something new, even if you are a MouseAdventure veteran. Past events have included such activities as:
Eyespy photos – Identify mystery pictures taken within the park.
Trivia (usually optional) – Test your knowledge of the Mouse with questions related to Disney minutiae.
Scavenger hunt – Find, obtain, and retrieve various items.
Quests – This is the core of the event. Solve codes, logic puzzles, and other enigmas and head off on your adventure in the park as you peel the layers that reveal the final answer of each quest.
The event itself can last between three and six hours, depending on the game format. Counting the time from morning check-in to the awards presentation in early evening, MouseAdventure pretty much takes up the entire day.
