Kinect: Disneyland Adventures is a Kinect-centric exploration game and minigame collection developed by Frontier and published by Microsoft for the Xbox 360 on November 15, 2011.
Set in a near-complete digital recreation of Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, Disneyland Adventures allows players (as customizable kids) to explore the park and interact with numerous Disney characters in various ways (such as dancing, hugging, and asking for autographs). It makes heavy use of the Kinect (including voice commands, motion control, and player recognition) and allows drop-in drop-out play for up to two players simultaneously. In addition, players can play numerous minigames based on both the park's attractions and Disney films.
The game was later ported to the Xbox One and PC by Asobo on October 31, 2017 as Disneyland Adventures, adding traditional controller support (no longer requiring the Kinect peripheral) and enhanced visuals (making use of the 4K and HDR support on the Xbox One X).
Players explore the park with the help of an anthropomorphized golden ticket. Movement is controlled by holding one's arm out in the intended direction. Fast travel to any attraction or area of the park can be done by using Kinect's voice recognition to pull up a map, and saying the location's name. Disney characters are found throughout the park, and can be engaged in conversation by waving when nearby. Once they're talking, players can hug, dance, high-five, or ask the character for an autograph. Quests are given to the player by the characters or the golden ticket, and consist of finding appropriate items (horseshoes for Jessie from Toy Story, for example) or speaking to other characters. Coins can be earned or found strewn about the park, with which costumes for the player's avatar can be purchased.
While the park itself is faithfully modeled, and rides are visible, entering a ride leads to a minigame that is themed to the ride, but not a recreation of the ride itself. Space Mountain, for example, consists of a space-shooting sequence through asteroid fields and the like. Players are given a bronze, silver, or gold medal depending on the number of points scored during these games.
Preorders (from GameStop) or plush dolls (from Toys "R" Us) come with scannable tags. Storefronts in the park have an option to scan these tags, which give the player gender-specific costumes and other items, as well as quests.
