Disney Quest: A Kid's review

Last year, we got premium annual passes - and those passes not only gave us access to the four main Disney parks but also to both water parks and Disney Quest.  I have quite enjoyed hanging out at the water parks - but Disney Quest was really not on my to-do list.  Last summer, my husband would go with my girls.  But.  I came to realize that because we go to the parks a lot, my girls were really old enough to navigate the Disney transportation system and get themselves to Disney Quest and then back to our resort.  Thus I was off the hook for a visit.

But.  During our last visit, I thought I'd take one for the team and check it out myself - and get some pictures for you.  In a nutshell, Disney Quest is a five story arcade and a kids dream come true.  We were there on a rainy day - so on that day, I'd say it was not my favorite place.  But.  If games are your thing - there is a lot of fun to be had here.

Here is what my 11 year old daughter has to say about Disney Quest:

Do you like adventure?  What about creativity?  Have you ever wanted to create your own roller coaster?  Then Disney Quest is the place!  In Disney Quest you can have the interactive experiences of being a pirate, an imagineer, or even an super hero.  

There are five floors in Disney Quest with many things for you to do.  On the first floor you can enjoy exploring the late cretaceous period.  Also, you can become a pirate in the Virtual Pirates of the Caribbean.  The lines on this floor can be 45 minutes long - so you might want to make it your first stop.

(The above picture is from the virtual Jungle Cruise - or your visit to the cretaceous.  You can't see the screen - but you paddle according to the screen - and your raft reacts accordingly, too.  It looks way cool.)

On floor two, you can draw the classic Disney characters like Mickey or Minnie.  The other major attraction on this floor is designing your own roller coaster.

On floor three you can become a comic book hero.  

(I actually can't recall which floor this was taken on - but there are a lot of virtual games - and here you can see the set up for one)

On floor four you can relax and have a snack.  

And finally on floor five, you can play classic arcade games.

Disney Quest is perfect for a rainy day.  You NEED to go to Disney Quest.

So...there you have it.  The opinion of a tween.  So...what about you?  Have you ever been to Disney Quest?  What part do you think you'd like to try?
