    Is the beginning of this article missing? One paragraph is repeated twice, and it doesn't read like an opening.

    Yea, I noticed this too, Kevin, did you stay up last night or was it jet lag?

    Not me - I submitted it with just one paragraph - it must have been duplicated in the editing process. I agree it's not a very effective first sentence, though.

    I wish each land had a thematically appropriate game for each individual land rather than 1 giant game that really only fits Fantasyland forced throughout the park where things won't make thematic sense.

    Re: 1/3: Get into the Groove

    Sorcerers will use special cards instead of cell phones, and the storyline has something to do with defeating Yzma and Kronk from Emperor’s New Groove (I know, I know… not my favorite, either).
    Hey, speak for yourself - some of us love that movie.

    The game looks fun, and like at Epcot, it looks like the Imagineers did a pretty good job of finding places that are out of the way, and that don't currently receive a lot of attention or foot traffic from guests.

    Thanks for the article, Kevin.

    The Midship Detective Agency interactive game on the Disney Dream, while fun, isn't that elaborate. All the actions are done with the card, which contains some kind of 3D barcode. For example, by moving the card in various directions in front of the camera, you clean away dust or by moving it up you move a lever on-screen.
