Phineas and Ferb & YOU: A Brand New Reality...(The Downtown Disney Experience)

At Downtown Disney right now there's a new and limited time experience. Daily from 2pm-930 through December 1st, 2012 (just over a month left to go) Disney is hosting Phineas and Ferb and YOU: A Brand New Reality...an interactive virtual reality experience.

And that, my friends was ALL I could find out about it before we went last month. So, we somewhat hesitantly made our way to Downtown Disney's west side and found the experience located just next to Bongos Cuban Cafe and I'm glad we did. Our four year old (like most four year old boys) LOVES Phineas and Ferb and this was a quick, fun souvenir to come home to. 

Here's what happens...

1. You get in line (as with all things Disney).
2. A cast member will direct your little one (or big one) where to stand and may give you a specific pose to make to correspond with the virtual reality characters.
3. S/he will see themselves on a screen above them WITH Phineas and Ferb characters and enjoy a short video interaction.
4. A snapshot is taken.
5. You're given a card with a special code (you have two weeks to go to www.phineasandferbandyou.com, type in your code number and magically a souvenir photo is available for FREE download) 

Our little man had a great time and because the experience was so quick, we did it twice. Also, the night we went lines were none-existent but I suspect because it's such a quick experience, it wouldn't take long to go through a line of people. 

If you're planning on shopping or eating at Downtown Disney (or if you have a little one who loves to watch Dr Doofenshmirtz be defeated) Phineas and Ferb & You is a fun little extra to any trip.
