Kinect: Disneyland Adventures launching on Nov. 15 (watch out, Halo!)

Kinect: Disneyland Adventures promises to bring Walt's whimsical park right into your living room, a quiet place devoid of souvenir shops, crowds and eternally smiling helmets. Disney says the embellished recreation of the park, constructed by Frontier Developments, will be available on November 15. (That'll be almost seven months after you last visited the real Disneyland -- you remember it because an errant, underarm fat-swing knocked the ice cream cone out of your hand.)

When you're not safely navigating the park with Kinect, you become a participant in several minigames that re-imagine famous Disney attractions. In the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, for example, your boat careens through caves while you deflect bombs with an on-screen oar.

Another secret, unlockable minigame has you jumping and swinging your arms wildly as Walt Disney, moments after he's woken up and shown 10 minutes of Chicken Little.%Gallery-126304%
