Your living room is now the happiest place on earth, provided that you have an X-Box 360 with Kinect. Announced and demoed at the E3 conference at the LA Convention Center, Kinect Disneyland Adventure, utilizes the hands-free Kinect controller to give players the chance to walk, and fly, around digital Disneyland, "replicated to a fine level of detail," says Disney's Adam Sussman, according to USA Today.

With Disneyland Adventure, digital children run amuck through the colorful streets of our famous theme park. Much like the real world, gold coins lead the way as users meet characters, take pictures, ride amusements and, at Peter Pan's request, fly through the streets on the way to Neverland.

Wired has a live-eye report of the action:

10:29 — Kinect Disneyland Adventures. They’re recreating the entire Disney park as a Kinect game. You can go to all the attractions, hang out with Disney characters and ride the rides. Two kids are on stage playing “Peter Pan’s Flight.” one kid slams into the wall and totally eats it. It is funny to me. These kids are doing a great job pretending to play this video.

The game is set to be released later this year.
