Disney Quest - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Disney General
Having never been to Disney Quest before, I was keen to take my 7 year old one evening. Located at Downtown Disney it is not as well known as the main Disney parks or waterparks, but can be used as part of your Disney tickets. If you have a pass with a lot of days, or have free days thrown in as part of the deal, it is certainly worth a visit. We looked at going to Disney Quest on a bad weather day as all the activities are inside.
Disney Quest is made up of 5 floors, each one packed and loaded with arcade games (both old and new) and small rides. Once inside the activities are all free and you can stay as short or long as you want.
We went on a Tuesday evening, however we were told to avoid going on a Friday or Saturday, due to Downtown Disney being very busy. On a Tuesday we found minimal queues for the arcades and rides and did not have to wait more than 10 minutes to get on anything.
If you like your arcade games or want to relive some of your youth (by visiting the Retro arcade games) you are really going to like this place. Ideally children need to be older than 5 years old to really appreciate it, but my 7 year old was in his element and really enjoyed himself. To see him play on arcade games I played on when I was a young boy was really good.
For those that don’t want to eat in Downtown Disney before or after they go, there is a small café inside that is reasonably priced, selling burgers, sandwiches and children’s meals. We found this an ideal place to recharge away from the noise of the arcades.
Some of the rides include a river rapids simulator, Magic Carpet ride, Alien attack adventure (using lightsabers) and Disney drawing clinics for the children. Queues for these depended on the time of day, but generally are no longer than 20 minutes. These tend to be busier than the arcades and have longer queues.
All in all Disney Quest is a great place to go to get away from the parks and is designed to keep children entertained for hours with no cost to the parents. To get the best benefit it is best to go later in the day and not at a weekend. Ideally picking a bad weather day is normally best. Not only does it cater well for the younger members of the family it also has plenty of activities to keep the parents busy. There are some of the best arcade machines out there and Disney always keep them up to date when new ones come out. Best of all there is no cost once inside, so you can go on them as many times as you want. If you have never been before it is certainly worth a visit as an evening activity or when waiting for your flight home after vacating the villa/ hotel.
