WE love Disney Quest and I highly recommend it .

We always find tons to do, and enjoy all the time we spend there (and it's a lot ~ we have annual passes to DQ).

I went in 2009 and I thought it was very dated.

It came as part of my ticket, i would have been gutted if I had payed extra to get in.

My kids like it, ages 9 and 11 and 4. But it is extremely hard keeping up with all of them with its building layout and makes me a little bit nervous trying to keep them corraled into one area.

I went with my family in 2010 after going to one of the water parks. We had a blast, we were able to play all the old games that my wife and I grew up playing. Astroids, Defender, Q-bert, Centipede, Missile Command, Tron and Mappy. I would recommend if the family loves video games. I would agree that it is very noisy and very warm inside the building but worth it to try the new games that are coming out in the near future.

Never understood the people that say a lot of the games are dated. Um, I think that it the point of a lot of the games!! If you love classic games then you will love DQ! You are not going to find WII like games there--but the classics that are better anyway!

I spent hours there with my bf last trip and we both loved it! We went on a day that wasn't crowded and it was nice to get away from the Disney crowds and Florida heat!

Has anyone gone to the New Year's Eve event at Disney Quest. My DS 16 and his DBF 17 are big xbox fans. Would they enjoy a evening there?

DH and I love playing the classic games while our DDs play other games. We really enjoy it. It is a change of pace that is good. I don't think we would pay the cash price for it, but we have a ton of unexpired "water parks and more" tickets that we use when we want to go.

I didn't care for it. With that said, I have three kids DS9, DS7, and DD4...and DH40. If i could do it differently, I would have sent my husband with my oldest son and I would have taken the other children somewhere else. It was noisy, load, and very crowded. Many of the adults needed to be taught a lesson on sharing. If you do this, at 22, I think you will enjoy it.

Disney Quest ?

Do you have to pay for each individual thing that you do? Is there a layout for the place somewhere online?

It was ok. We went there for DD's 16t bday. I guess it was neat one time, but it wouldn't be something I would want to do everytime I went.

If you are into arcade games it can be very cool and worthwhile. Many of the best 80s games are often in severe disrepair and barely work and that is very frustrating.

I would use a extra day on a pass but would never pay the full admission...

I wouldn't pay for it, but since it is part of our passes, we always go once or twice if we are staying at least 5 days. The Pirates of the Caribbean game makes it worth it for us. It is somewhat of a virtual reality experience, as you step inside a simulator where you are surrounded on 3 sides by screens. it is really cool.

My kids (ages 13 and 11) really enjoy it. We stop there for a while, walk around Downtown Disney a bit, perhaps eat a meal out....and everyone always says that they had a good time.

We enjoyed it alot when we went in september. We had waterpark and more option on our ticket. I dont think we would pay extra just to go to DQ though. If you have it as part of your ticket then for sure go and have a blast, if not then you could probably skip it and not feel like you are missing anything.
