Have you checked out Disney Quest?

Whether vacationing at Disney or if your locals like us, Disney Quest is a great change of pace from the parks and a great option if the weather turns bad. This does seem to be the case quite often this summer.

It is housed in a five-story, windowless building. Guests enter the first-floor lobby and are transported via a magic elevator to the third floor atrium at the start of their visit.

The five floors of gaming will keep everyone in the family busy for hours as they have many rides, attractions, and varieties of games that everyone can enjoy.  My children are 9 and 7 and there was plenty for them to do!

Myself not being much of a “gamer” feel that I cannot possibly give too much detail on the actual games but I did enjoy the Pirate’s of the Caribbean.  I especially enjoyed that you play this with the whole family.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold: Man a pirate ship and destroy other ships, sea monsters, and fortresses to collect gold. One player captains the ship by steering and controlling the throttle, while up to four gunners control the cannons to destroy other ships.

I also went to the Virtual Jungle Cruise: Paddle an inflatable raft (with real paddles) as you make your way down a prehistoric river, avoiding dinosaurs and occasionally getting sprayed with water. It is based on, Jungle Cruise. This was just….ok.

Animation Academy – Be a Disney animator! An instructor takes you through the process of drawing a Disney character step by step.  This was fun and great for any aspiring artist or not!

On the 4th floor you will find the Wonderland Cafe, which features some absolutely incredible desserts and specialty coffees. You know those huge cupcakes you see throughout some of Disney’s dining venues….yup you can get one here!  I did like it here because you do get to sit back and relax.

On the 5th floor is Food Quest where salads, pizza, sandwiches, and other counter service items are offered.

Regular hours of operation are as follows:
Sunday – Thursday: 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Friday – Saturday: 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Visitors under age 10 must be accompanied by a responsible person age 16 or older. Certain games offering prize incentives require purchase of tokens to play. There are not many of these, my boys didn’t even ask to play these with all the other options they had.

Strollers are not allowed but it is handicapped accessible.

There are so many games here, I merely mentioned a few and other attractions that it is worth a visit!
