August 16, 2019 – Tourism Vancouver has launched an immersive “Disney Descendants 3 in Vancouver AR Adventure”, created by Vancouver-based QuestUpon and now available for free download on the Apple App Store and Google Play store. The self-guided adventure is inspired by Descendants 3, the third movie in the Disney Channel’s global franchise, which premiered on August 2. All three movies in the franchise were filmed in Vancouver and Vancouver Island.

Supported by Disney, the “Disney Descendants 3 in Vancouver AR Adventure” encourages Descendants fans to visit key filming sites such as Britannia Mine Museum and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, as well as Hatley Castle and the BC Parliament Buildings on Vancouver Island. Visitors can then use their phones to unlock site-specific film clips, movie- and tourism-inspired trivia, scavenger hunt-style missions, and AR animations. To access the experience, users need to download the free QuestUpon app and select “Descendants 3 in Vancouver”.
