Hello friends and Kungaloosh!
If you know what that means then you are a true Walt Disney World Adventurer (even though the actual “Adventurers’ Club” at Pleasure Island is no more… sniff), and you will certainly enjoy this episode of New Mexicast TV!

This story follows these skippers on a scavenger hunt through Adventureland in Walt Disney World as they hunt for the “Mystic Golden Idol.” Their guide, and tormentor, is the memorable character, Colonel Wayne Percival McSwagger:
