‘Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure’ to Replace ‘Kim Possible’ at Epcot
The official Disney Parks blog confirmed earlier today that it will introduce the popular Disney Channel series ‘Phineas and Ferb’ to Epcot later this year when it replaces the also-popular ‘Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure’ with ‘Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure,’ starring Perry the Platypus’ alter-ego, Agent P.
The change was reported earlier this year by @TouringPlans on their Twitter, with an expected timeline of June (the Disney Parks blog mentions only summer as the transition time), but was recently confirmed by Walt Disney Parks Chairman Tom Staggs in an interview with Travel Weekly (via Jim Hill Media).
Earlier today at the 2012 annual shareholder’s meeting held in Kansas City, MO, Disney President and CEO Robert Iger made note during the question and answer session that the company is looking at ways to integrate boy-favored properties into the Disney Parks, noting ‘Phineas and Ferb’ especially. Currently the title pair operate as meet & greet opportunities at both Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort.
