Behold The Gifts of Mara – A Classic Disney Experience is Now on the Play Disney Parks App!

Remember when Indiana Jones Adventure first opened at Disneyland in 1995? AT&T gave out these neat decoder cards you could use to translate hidden glyphs throughout the attraction.


Those cards have been out of print for years, but thanks to the magic of the Play Disney Parks app, guests can begin solving the mysteries of the Temple of Mara once again! There are even some new surprises lying in wait for the most courageous of adventurers…


The new game works like the translator tool in the Star Wars Datapad at Galaxy’s Edge. Guests simply enter the glyphs onto a special keypad, and the app will automatically decode the hidden messages. New in this iteration is the addition of maps; each message will grant you a piece of a map, and completing them all will lead you to a message from Mara herself. There are even new messages and symbols that have been added to the queue, providing you with plenty of puzzles to solve during your next visit.

Just, you know… maybe work on the whole “avoiding eye contact with the angry goddess” thing. Seems to be a recurring problem.

You can try out this new experience in the Play Disney Parks app today. Be sure to keep following All Ears for more news about Disney’s interactive experiences, and don’t forget to comment!
