Wilderness Explorers

An Attraction in Animal Kingdom

Last updated: April 13, 2024

At a Glance

Walt Disney World offers several interactive games in its theme parks, and Wilderness Explorers is the best of the bunch—a scavenger hunt based on Russell’s Boy Scout–esque troop from the movie Up. Players earn “badges” (stickers given out by cast members) for completing predefined activities throughout the park. For example, to earn the Gorilla Badge, you walk the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail to observe how the primates behave, then mimic that behavior back to a cast member to show what you’ve seen.

Sign up near the bridge from The Oasis to Discovery Island. You’ll be given an instruction book and a map showing the park location for each badge to be earned.

Cast members have been specially trained for this game and can tailor the activities based on the age of the child playing: Small children might get an explanation about what deforestation means, for example, while older kids may have to figure out why tigers have stripes. It’s tons of fun for kids and adults, and we play it every time we’re in the park.

The Wilderness Explorers program is a big hit with kids, as a Melbourne, Australia, mom relates:

Wilderness Explorers was the highlight of my son’s day. Much time is spent collecting badges, but it is well worth the investment of time!
