Richard Quartermaine Muntz (aka RQM in abbreviating circles) is… well, we’re not quite sure. Little is known about this little known seeker of little known facts about the little known secret Society of Explorers and Adventurers* in Disney Parks. Very little.
As new information is gathered, this page will explore the man behind the mystery behind the bookshelf behind the mystery behind the man. Come back often and soon.
NEWS FLASH: The intrepid detectives at the Did You Know Disney Podcast, Alex Stewart and Freddy Martin released the first in an upsetting series of recordings on or about February 15, 2019. These transmissions appear to be proof positive of Muntz’s existence but these sort of things are rarely all they’re hyped up to be. Probably just fake news.

And now, here’s what we know so far…
At this hour, explorers, world-travelers, and tiki aficionados are preparing to gather at Disneyland in Anaheim, California on March 3, 2019, and in Orlando, Florida on March 10, for an ancient ritual called “Adventureland Day,” which promises to reveal even more about this shadowy character.

Facts are fuzzy, but the Society of Explorers and Adventurers (the S.E.A.) are a secret club described as “a society comprised of mariners, scientists, engineers, and artists dedicated to the advancement of navigation and exploration of the seas…” but there’s so much more. Apparently, clues of their existence can be found throughout the amusement parks built by another mysterious figure known as Walter Elias Disney, but we can’t be sure if that’s his real name. We’ve seen his type before.
Recent discoveries within the archives of Marshall College and the personal records of Dr. Alyssandra Jones yielded this undated recording of a voice believed to be Muntz. He appears to be preparing for a quest to recover a map fragment from known felon Gephart Goldthwait, an associate of collector and grave robber, Felix Casablanca.
Adventurelanders can acquire their own copies of the map & cypher from AdventurelandDay.com, but it is yet unknown if these are authentic or forgeries.
The Diary Entry
From the diary of Anastasia Falls, uncovered at an abandoned safari camp deep in the jungles of Adventureland:
Had a visitor to the camp this evening. Someone I’ve never seen in the jungle before, a Richard Quartermaine Muntz. He claimed he knew my father. He was trying to get as much information about him and his life as possible but wouldn’t say why. He claims my father has been missing. That’s not possible. I’ve been receiving letters from him for many months now. It has been many years since I have seen him with my own eyes though. This only further reinforces why I must take the advice given to return home.
Other information may be leaked on the Insta-gram at Did You Know Disney or Skipper Freddy. The jungle drums also suggest Mr. Muntz may have his own robot phone and post under his own name. So mysterious.
