Disney Quest Inquiry

We have 9 people ranging from 6 - 66 going to Disney. To get out of the heat, my SIL suggested Disney Quest. I have been to Disney a crazy amount of times but have never been to Disney Quest.

Is there something to do for all of our age ranges? My MIL strongly opposes video games so I am thinking she wont want to go, but what about the smaller kids? Are there things for a 6 and 7-year-old to hold their interest?

If we don't like it is it fine because we have a PAP, but they would need to pay the fee to go in. It would be a shame for them to pay if there is not much for smaller kids.

Just as a side note - I did view videos on YouTube and I have looked up the offerings on WDWInfo and AllEars, but the details are few in writing and the videos on YT are very dark.

Nothing for the MIL to do if she doesn't like games, although there is a nice place to sit on the 4th and 5th floor that is a good place to relax and read a book while kids play. Do the young kids like games and do they play any game systems at home? My family enjoys DQ for a few hours each trip but we go early, start at the Pirates ride and wor k our way around. DQ is massive and you need to keep track of the kids really well- I am really paranoid and dislike losing sight of my son so I am with him while he is playing.

Another fun place to go and play games insde are the value resorts or the Contemporary. it's not free but it is fun and the others can be ther or outside relaxing or wherever relaxing without paying.

They do like playing video games. I wasn't sure if the stuff at DQ were too difficult or mature for smaller kids.

Go early in the day and the little ones can pretty much play as they like. . Also there is. Food area on the fourth and Fifth floor where you can sit, have soda and read in relative peace and quiet if the olders want to join you.

If youre trying to beat the heat, you could go to Typhoon Lagoon. The entire group could enjoy the wave pool. Theres a kiddie area near it too. Also you could always venture out and ride the slides. Just an alternative idea, DQ would probably work too

Does everyone in your party enjoy bowling? If so I'd consider Splitsville. That way everyone can enjoy the fun together

Isn't there an age restriction?

Just googled it. Other locations do, but DTD does not. Pre-opening reports were saying the 2nd floor might be restricted to 21+ after 9 pm, but I haven't found anything to confirm that.

Thank you! I'm sorry, I could have googled!

Thanks for the suggestion about Splitsville. We may look into that as well.

Remember that every indoor building has AC! We never really had a problem overheating even on really hot days. Just took a break in a show like Hall of Presidents, American Adventure, Finding Nemo, Little Mermaid. Keeps you plenty cool

We went to DQ last year and it was horrible. There are a few interesting games but for the most part they are not worth the price. I don't remember seeing too many games for little ones. I also can safely say that most adults will not enjoy DQ. Definitely make sure to go when it is less crowded. When we went there were not to many people, it was Sept. I noticed that all the good games had lines and people waiting to play. I can't imagine what it is like during a busier time of year.

DQ is extremely loud and has major sensory overload! It is dirty!!!. DQ is just like any other video game place dirty hand marks all over everything. All, I could think about were all those dirty hands and if anyone was sick. Last thing you want is to get sick at disney but, there are germs everywhere in the parks. Make sure you have wipes!

I personally would recommend the water parks. They are so much fun and for all ages. You don't even feel the heat while you are there. There is also Lego Land at DD. Usually all ages love Lego's. They have some amazing displays of lego building.

Have fun!
