My Last Hurrah at Disney Quest
Many of us already know about the many changes that have been taking place all around the Walt Disney World property. One of these changes is the closing of Disney Quest, the five-story arcade full of digital fun that originally opened in 1998! Over time I have noticed that those who know about and love Disney Quest and those who had no idea it even existed is about 50/50, therefore, I wanted to highlight some of my time on my very last visit to this awesome interactive arcade.
Forgive me if I am wrong about which floors held which games, I did my best to recall.
Since this was the last time I will most likely be able to play Ms. Packman over and over again an unlimited amount of times without paying a ton of money I made sure we started our day with the classic games on the fifth floor! I shamelessly spent most of the time at the Ms. Packman game while on the fifth floor, however, I also ended up enjoying some rounds of Donkey Kong, Frogger, Mario Bros, and a few other classics.
Down to the fourth floor, we decided to avoid the “kiddie gaming area” as I called it and keep over near the other arcade games with some of the older kids and adults. This is where my boyfriend and I had some fun with the mini golf video game! Now, don’t judge us, I too usually snark at the golf games but we actually had a lot of fun and it was a close game. However, us princesses, we tend to always win (LOL he actually USUALLY beats me). After some mini golf, we took it to the streets and raced some cars – virtually of course.
The third floor held my shortest, but favorite, gaming session we had. Fix It Felix Jr. While I personally am just terrible at this game, it still is my absolute favorite experience Disney Quest had to offer. Where else do you get to play a game that is based on the world that one of your favorite Disney movies takes place in? The only thing that may be better would have been a Sugar Rush game!
Now, some of you probably are wondering why I haven’t talked anything about the interactive Disney games such as the Pirates of the Carribean game, the Jungle Cruise game, and the Aladdin game. The reason for this is these types of games give me terrible motion sickness, unfortunately, I had to sit them out. However, we still had an amazing, fun-filled time with the games I highlighted here and much more.
With the closing of Disney Quest, I am anxiously awaiting to see what Disney has in store for us! This moment may be bittersweet, but I have yet to be disappointed in the changes Disney has brought to Walt Disney World!
