Episode 22: Our Last Time EVER at Disney Quest – Walt Disney World – September 2016

We will truly miss Disney Quest!  Our boys are gamers so this place is a haven for them… I mean five floors of unlimited video games, what could any kid ask for???  When we visited on this trip we did not know that it would be our last experience.  There had been rumors for a long time that it was going to close but nothing had been announced for certain.  So we went and played for the LAST TIME…

For the past few years we have made a visit to Disney Quest on each of our trips.  We love the Disney Water Parks so have also gotten the Water Park Fun & More ticket which includes Disney Quest, so basically it was free for us to go here since we bought the ticket for entrance to the water parks.  Win, Win!

There are so many things to love about Disney Quest…  One floor is full of interactive family style games like Virtual Pirates of the Caribbean which is a 3D adventure where your family enters the pirate ship and each man a cannon to fight off other pirate ships and gather treasure (I personally loved this one).  There is Jungle Cruise in which your family boards an inflatable raft, yes it literally inflates around you, and you paddle your way through an adventure down the river.  There are these Jeeps that you jump in and grab a gun to shoot the huge mutant bugs that are coming at you from all directions.  This is a great floor!

There is another floor that is nothing but old school arcade games, think PacMan and Skeeball and Wheel of Fortune… and there is a whole corner full of Fix It Felix, Jr. games aka Wreck It Ralph, which of course is closely guarded by a larger than life Ralph.

Yet another floor is full of creative games like virtual coloring books, create a song in a music booth, create a toy which is like what Sid creates in Toy Story (ps this is crazy hard!) and the one we really enjoyed… CyberSpace Mountain!  This is a design your own roller coaster which you then get to ride in a simulator.  It is very similar to Sum of All Thrills at Epcot but more intense.  It was a lot of fun!

And finally there is a floor of modern arcade games.  These are the games you will find in all of the arcades across the Disney resorts and well really everywhere across the country.  There are simulated rides where the seats move and wind blows in your face, jet ski and boat games where you board mini versions of the real thing, war games where you sit in a bubble and the screen wraps around you so things are coming at you from all angles and our boys favorite, the Star Wars racing game where you are like little Anakin racing through the desert and mountain scapes.

This is really a great way to spend a few hours and it will be truly missed by our family!  It is being replaced by the NBA Experience which will do nothing for us as we are not basketball fans.  At least we will have some fun memories from our final visit!

Join us next time as we have a ROARING dinner at T-Rex!
