Disney Quest in Orlando has been around for quite some time now and has been a favorite day and night time stop for kids and families of all ages. Disney Quest is a Indoor Interactive playground, located in Downtown Disney and has all of the lastest, greatest video games and simulation rides anywhere around. Disney has more money than they know what to do with and it surely shows here at Disney Quest. Night time is my favorite time to go as the whole Downtown Disney area takes on a Vegas feel. The light and sounds are even more exotic as you stand out front of the Disney Quest building. When you enter the building, you are greated by a Disney cast member who escorts you into your transport elevator that will take you to the first Disney Quest zone. Once you enter, you feel like you are in some sort of Willie Wanka future arcade world except with no candy. There are 5 play zones and here are a few tips to get the most out of your day.
The single best tip is to go early. (Schedule varies)
Head to the Explore Zone first before the lines form. The Score Zone and Buzz’s Astro Blaster also are popular. After that, take your time and explore all the levels of this wonderful playground. You will find something for everyone, regardless of how old you are.
- EXPLORE ZONE: You’ll be transported to another world as you experience the Virtual Jungle Cruise while shooting the rapids. Aladdin’s Magic Carpet Ride sends you through Agrabah as you race to release the Genie. Go in search of hidden treasure on the Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold.
- SCORE ZONE: Become a superhero as you Ride the Comix! in a 3D comic book battle. Your crew visits other planets as you go on a rescue mission in Invasion! An Alien Encounter. The Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam puts you in the middle of the action.
- CREATE ZONE: Express yourself in this artistic center. At the Living Easels you can paint a live masterpiece. Create and ride your one of a kind rollercoaster at CyberSpace Mountain. Toy Story fans will love Sid’s Create-A-Toy where you can assemble and take home your own toy. Become a Disney animator at the Animation Academy. Budding musical stars can create their own CD by choosing from over 20 styles and 1000 vocals at the Radio Disney SongMaker.
- REPLAY ZONE: Classic games and rides with Buzz Lightyear’s AstroBlaster pitting you against your competitors in a zany bumper car race. Mad Wave Motion Theater gives you a choice of riding a fantasy coaster or steering a high speed race car. The Dance Zone offers the latest dance video games and KidQuest is designed for kids ages 2 – 7. Custom Redemption Games require the purchase of Disney Quest Game Play Cards. Points can be used to redeem prizes.
In additon to the games described, there are video games, pinball machines, and all sorts of fun activities. You pay one price for access to Disney Quest for the entire day, and you are free to leave and return. (The only exception is if you decide to play the games where prizes are awarded. The purchase of a game card is required.)There’s no need to leave when you get hungry as you can enjoy lunch, snacks and dessert during your visit. On the 4th floor you will find the Wonderland Cafe, which features some absolutely incredible desserts and specialty coffees. While enjoying your treat you can surf the ‘net, e-mail postcards to your friends/family. On the 5th floor is Food Quest where salads, pizza, sandwiches, and other counter service items are offered.
Remember that the lines at Disney Quest can be pretty long on busy days and evenings, so get your discount Disney Quest tickets here at The Official Ticket Center.
