Disney Quest - Rainy Day Ideas at Walt Disney World

Are you looking for ways to make rainy days at Walt Disney World magical?

One place that's a huge hit on a rainy day is Disney Quest.

Disney's INDOOR Interactive Theme Park includes five floors of virtual fun and puts you in the middle of some of your favorite Disney adventures.  This place is a gamer's dream come true!

There are four zones:  Explore, Score, Replay and Create.

Disney Quest holds 1900 people and was filled to capacity on the day before my visit because it was a very rainy day.  On normal days, you should not have a crowd issue at all.  Some of the highlighted attractions include bumper cars with asteroid-firing cannons - you can choose to be a driver or gunner and spin your opponent out of control in Buzz Lightyear's AstroBlaster.  You can be a part of a human pinball game in Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam.

Would you like to volunteer to rescue stranded people and battle attaching aliens in "An Extra TERRORestrial Alein Encounter...or maybe ride Virtual Space Mountain.  You can even get on a motorcycle-type ride at Aladdin's Magic Carpet ride and put headgear on to virtually put yourself right into the screen of Aladdin's world.  Become a Pirate as you sail the Caribbean, battle pirate ships, rough water and the ghost of Jolly Roger to get treasure...and there's always that chance that you'll end up in Davy Jones' locker.  You can also ride a Virtual Jungle Cruise...the possibilities in Disney Quest seem endless!

Plus, if you're a "child of the eighty's" than you will be very happy with the BLAST FROM THE PAST games that you can find here and play again.

 You can also try your hand at learning how to do animation here.  Several times a day they hold a 30 minute Animation Academy.  In the classes, they teach you to draw Disney characters.  On the day that I was there, you could learn how to make Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy & Pluto.  After you're done, you can purchase your artwork in the Gallery.

There are a few food options and I even saw outlets near seating for phone charging opportunities.  The food was mainly burgers, hot dogs, wraps and fast food choices.
Hope you enjoy your day if you visit and always make the most of every day at Walt Disney World...rain or no rain!
