Appropriate age for Kim Possible?

I'm trying to get a feel for the Kim Possible adventure in Epcot. Is it appropriate for young kids (say between 3 and 8), or older children?

It is best for those that can read and follow directions. If you have a non-reader, you will have to do it for them. My 12 year old really enjoyed it.

My 8 year old was able to do the missions by himself, but we had to help the 5 year old. They both (and us parents) had a great time.

Thanks for the replies! Would it be a waste of time for a 2.5yr old do you think? I'm just trying to think of ways to keep the kids interested in Epcot a bit longer, but if this is generally geared for older children, I'd better not...

From what I remember (we were not impressed with it) our DD10 had no problems with it at all. It requires the ability to follow directions, read, and gives veiled hints at things to look for to "progress" to the next task. There's definitely some creative thinking that has to go on, so I don't really think it would be for the really young ones. However, if you make it a "group" or "family" event, then everyone can contribute, which may work well for you.

DD7 and I did a few on our trip. For the most part she would have been able to do it alone, but it was way more fun for us to do it together. 2 1/2? Not so sure they would get it, although there are "magical" things that happen at certain spots, so it may be fun for them to look for those.

My 6 and 8 year olds did it together with a little help from us. Lots of fun.
A two year old might enjoy the kidcot stations and making/decorating the masks.

I with you! I'm 41 and I think I like it just as much (actually even more) than my boys!

My 7 year old loved it, as did her almost 3 year old sister. I'm sure we'll be doing more when we go back in November.

My wife and I also enjoyed it. I felt it really added a lot for kids at Epcot.

My boyfriend and I loved it and we're both 22! The little ones should love seeing all of the stuff happening.. even if you have to help them with the Kimmunicator (the little cell phone they give you). Plus, you usually sign up for a mission and go get it at a certain time so there isn't really a wait and then you can choose to do as many missions as you want! You might as well try one and see how it goes. We loved that it got us looking at all of the little parts of World Showcase that we would normally miss

Your 8 y.o. will enjoy it for sure. The 3 y.o. I think it depends on the kid. I have a nephew who is 3 and he would love this. The waiting on instructions, would annoy him, but showing him the pictures of what is supposed to be found and then looking for it he would be all over. Plus if he was with his older siblings, the fact they are excited would hold his interest as well. My DD on the other hand would not have enjoyed this at three. After the first couple of clues she would have been bored.

We let our 13 and 10 yr. olds go off on their own to explore and complete as many missions as they could. They had a blast and asked if they could do it again this year. It was wonderful, they were off doing their thing and DH and I could explore the pavillions without hearing "when are we moving to the next one?" We took our time and they had cell phones so we knew they were ok, and were told to stay together, they had the best time, and enjoyed their new found independence.

Our DD6 and DS4 loved it. They still talk about. It is a must do for us.
In fact my 50 year old sister just booked her 1st trip, she will be joining us. She is looking forward to doing one to.

My guess is your 8 year old will enjoy it. Your 3 year old may enjoy pushing a button and making something happen. I'd definitely do it.
