DisneyQuest is an Attraction fit for all Ages

Orlando‘s interactive, 3D, virtual reality arcade attraction, Disney Quest, is located in Downtown Disney’s West Side. Disney Quest offers 5 levels and over 100,000 square feet of air conditioned indoor adventures, games and activities for guests of all ages. The Disney Quest attraction is divided into the four zones that are listed below.

The Explore Zone is located on the first floor of Disney Quest. These adventures will take to to mythical and faraway lands, such as the new Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold. The entire family can participate in this adventure as well as The Virtual Jungle Cruise Expedition. Most of the rides/adventures in this zone are relatively tame and can be enjoyed by all family members.

Most of The Create Zone, which is located on the second floor, will be a favorite of the younger children. Here you can use your imagination as well as your creativity as you design your own song at the new Song Maker, or learn how to draw Pluto at The Animation Academy. The most popular attraction on this floor, and possibly for all of Disney Quest is Cyber Space Mountain. Here, guests are able to create their very own roller coaster, then experience their very own inversion-packed ride first-hand. This ride is not recommended for younger children or anyone that experiences motion sickness.

On Disney Quest’s third, forth and fifth floors, you will find The Replay Zone. This zone contains many of your standard arcade games such as Skee Ball, Air Hockey and Space Invaders, along with some classic games with a new twist. At Buzz Lightyear’s AstroBlaster, they have taken your typical bumper cars and added cannons with which you can ‘blast’ other cars. Here you can also find the interactive jet skis, motorcycles and cars, with surprisingly, not too long of a wait.

Located on the the forth and fifth floors, The Score Zone, contains futuristic, virtual reality game playing. Guests can participate in the life sized Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam, or slay super villains as they Ride the Comix. My favorite is Invasion! An Extra TERRORestrial Alien Encounter, where a group of four work together to rescue stranded colonists on an alien planet.

In case you haven’t heard, Disney Quest has been busy making changes and improvements to their interactive, 3D, virtual reality arcade attraction, located in Downtown Disney’s West Side.

For starters, Disney Quest has discontinued using ‘Smart Cards’, a system where you used points for rides/games/adventures. Now, all games are included in the admission price. (The Smart Card kind of reminded me of the olden days when the Magic Kingdom used coupon books for individual rides at the park. If you ran out of ‘E’ tickets you would have to purchase more, or forgo the really good rides and head on over to Cinderella’s Carousel.)
Another Disney Quest improvement is the annual pass for Florida Residents. Now for roughly the same price as two admissions, you can visit the attraction as much as you like for one full year, with no blackout dates.
Two new adventures were added over the summer:
Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold, is an interactive adventure that requires one captain and from one to five crew members to man the cannons. The object is to work together during this five minute adventure to capture as much gold as you can from other pirates, while trying to secure your booty against Jolly Roger and his Ghost ship.
Song Maker utilizes touch-screen computers to allow guests to create their own musical creations by mixing and matching lyrics and music styles. There are over 1,000 vocal performances available to to help with with the song creation. The final copy of the song can be reproduced on a CD that is available for sale.
