Pap the Disney Gamer's Highlights: Tortuga Tavern the Magical Portal

So yep, we at From Screen to Theme are having a Taco Week! An odd week for sure, but our theme nonetheless! I admit that for a while, though, I struggled to come up with something for this week's theme. The best I could muster that celebrates all things Mexican and delicious is the Tortuga Tavern at Adventureland.

Now, my friend Reuben already covered the Quick Service restaurant for our Pirates themed week last year, so if you want to learn more about the actual restaurant, you can read all about it here. Now, why am I bringing something unrelated to gaming this week? OK, I lied, there IS a connection between the Tortuga Tavern and gaming, something that is quite magical I should say.

A few weeks ago I wrote about the impact of the new card based game Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, which you can read all about on my March 13th article. One of the things I really love about this game is how it turns seemingly normal, ordinary places within the Magic Kingdom into portals where players can see their favorite Disney characters come to life. To me, it makes the Magic Kingdom even more magical since it is like we are peering into these universes, and any place can help us get there.

Turns out that if you do one of the missions at Adventureland, one of the portals is on the Tortuga Tavern. The portal can be found at the fireplace one you present your key card:

So while some stop on by just to have a nice meal, others are there to defend the Magic Kingdom from the most evil Disney villains ever, proving to us that there is no place at Walt Disney World that lacks that special brand of Disney magic.
