BURBANK, Calif. – April 7, 2011 – On May 12 and 13, when hundreds of teams compete across the Walt Disney World Resort’s four theme parks in D23’s Great Disney Scavenger Hunt — the largest scavenger hunt ever to hit Walt Disney World — they’ll be vying for the ultimate Disney prize for the ultimate Disney hunters: a special preview cruise on the Disney Fantasy, the fourth regal vessel in the expanding Disney Cruise Line fleet. The special prize was announced today on D23’s Disney Geek, the weekly Disney news video podcast from Disney’s Official Fan Club.
The 4,000-passenger cruise liner, set to launch in Spring 2012, boasts 14 towering decks, 1,250 staterooms and more than 1,450 cast and crew members. Specially designed with families in mind, the Disney Fantasy provides entertainment for all ages, and is equipped with pools, youth clubs and restaurants. The special preview cruise, leaving from Port Canaveral, FL, will take place in March 2012, and the prize includes accommodations for four, plus air travel, courtesy of Disney Cruise Line.
D23’s Great Disney Scavenger Hunt is part of a full weekend of The Official Disney Fan Club’s events, including Destination D: Walt Disney World 40th. While Destination D is exclusive to D23 Members, the Scavenger Hunt is open to D23 Members and non-members alike. Registration information, as well as additional information on both events, can be found on the D23 website.
D23’s Great Disney Scavenger Hunt will consist of teams of two to four people who will race against the clock as they scour the grounds for answers to challenging but fun questions. The top 10 placing teams will also receive prizes and collectibles courtesy of D23, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, Disney Publishing, Walt Disney Records, Walt Disney Collector’s Society, Walt Disney World and Adventures by Disney.
