Disney Quest Touring Tips
The single best tip is to go early. (Schedule varies.)
Head to the Explore Zone first before the lines form. The Score Zone and Buzz's Astro Blaster also are popular.
There are four zones of play:
- EXPLORE ZONE: You'll be transported to another world as you experience the Virtual Jungle Cruise while shooting the rapids. Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride sends you through Agrabah as you race to release the Genie. Go in search of hidden treasure on the Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold.
- SCORE ZONE: Your crew visits other planets as you go on a rescue mission in Invasion! An Alien Encounter. The Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam puts you in the middle of the action.
- CREATE ZONE: Express yourself in this artistic center. At the Living Easels you can paint a live masterpiece. Create and ride your one of a kind rollercoaster at CyberSpace Mountain. Toy Story fans will love Sid's Create-A-Toy where you can assemble and take home your own toy. Become a Disney animator at the Animation Academy. Budding musical stars can create their own CD by choosing from over 20 styles and 1000 vocals at the Radio Disney SongMaker.
- REPLAY ZONE: Classic games and rides with Buzz Lightyear's AstroBlaster pitting you against your competitors in a zany bumper car race. Mad Wave Motion Theater gives you a choice of riding a fantasy coaster or steering a high speed race car. The Dance Zone offers the latest dance video games and KidQuest is designed for kids ages 2 - 7. Custom Redemption Games require the purchase of Disney Quest Game Play Cards. Points can be used to redeem prizes.
In additon to the games described, there are video games, pinball machines, and all sorts of fun activities.
one price for access to Disney Quest for the entire day, and you
are free to leave and return. (The only exception is if you decide to play the games where prizes are awarded. The purchase of a game card is required.)
There's no need to leave when you get hungry as you can enjoy lunch, snacks and dessert during your visit.
On the 4th floor you will find the Wonderland Cafe, which
features some absolutely incredible desserts and specialty coffees. While enjoying your treat you can surf the 'net, e-mail postcards to your friends/family and visit the DIS.
On the 5th floor is Food Quest where salads, pizza, sandwiches, and other counter service items are offered.
Disney Quest Ticket
The pricing structure for DisneyQuest is as follows (tax is included):
virtual reality attraction recreates and enhances the
Pirates of the Caribbean experience, allowing you to be
a pirate in search of treasure on the high seas. You enter
into a room that has the front portion of a Pirate ship
with six cannons, three on each side. One person in the
group is the Captain and he or she does not have a cannon
As the show begins, a ghost gives you instructions on
how to be successful in sinking the other ships to get
their treasure. The ghost tells you to get close to the
ships to have a better chance of sinking them. The
advice is good, but it is best to try to get to a ship
side to side not head to head-your cannons don't fire
straight when aiming at center screen. Shoot for the sails
of the boats as well the hulls. When a boat is sunk you
will see it go under and it's treasure will appear on
The ghost reappears towards the end and informs that you
have to fight him to keep your treasure. A ghost ship
then appears and flying skeletons zealously move towards
your bow to get your treasure. You must shoot them; it
is the only way to get to protect your booty. At the end
of your battle, your score is tallied and your ranking
All in all, the Pirates of The Caribbean Search for Buccaneer
Gold is a wonderful addition to DisneyQuest-get there
early though; the line gets long really quick.
you wait years for something, and it still exceeds your
expectations, you know it's a great attraction...Aladdin's
Magic Carpet ride is a great attraction. For a few
years, Epcot guests could experience a virtual reality
magic carpet ride through Agrabah (from Aladdin) as part
of an animation attraction. That was in preparation for
this attraction. Now, guests can experience this for themselves.
You are divided into 3 groups of 4 people each. You are
seated on what appears to be a weird motorcycle with a
control wheel in front of you (this allows you to go up,
down and side to side). You fit the virtual reality helmet
onto your head, and your ready for action. True to VR
technology, you can look up and down, and side to side,
to see your fellow teammates (all of whom appear as Abu
the Monkey, each in a different colored vest). Your job
is to explore through Agrabah to release the Genie, who
is trapped in the cave of wonders. The entire experience
lasts 4 1/2 minutes, and is worth ANY wait to experience. Note: There are only 2 groups of 4 stations in the
Chicago attraction, and there will only be 2 groups in
Philadelphia when it opens.
Explore Zone boasts the Virtual Jungle Cruise. Guests
get into rafts that are positioned in front of large projection
screens. The raft actually sits on an air mattress that
moves to the motion of waves, to give you the real feeling
of being on a rafting expedition. Each guest is also handed
a paddle. As the ride begins, the air mattress under your
raft inflates, which does a good job of simulating water
motion. Guests must use their paddles to control the raft.
For example, if the guests on the right side of the boat
paddle, your view on the screen will go to the left, and
vice versa. You're mission is to see how far down the
river you can get before the end. Your mission begins
in a virtual DisneyLand (complete with castle in the background).
As you proceed, you go back in time to the land of the
dinosaurs. You experience some pretty heavy rapids, going
over some waterfalls, through caves, and much more. The
raft will respond to everything you see on the screen
(including spurts of water where appropriate). All in
all...it's great fun. NOTE:
is not in Chicago or Philadelphia
again, Disney proves that they can do ANYTHING.
To the right of the Virtual Jungle Cruise, you will notice
a bank of monitors with steering wheels. If you look down
as you walk over to them, you will see the floor is glass
enclosed, and covers a maze with small, remote controlled
vehicles moving about. There are small cameras positioned
inside those trucks, and the monitors and steering wheels
against the wall control them. You maneuver your truck
around the maze in an effort to find Inca treasure.
When you find treasure, you simply pull up to it to collect
it. This attraction also issues tickets which can
be redeemed for prizes.
Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam
Requirement : 48"
Up to 12 players stand on platforms that move, and control
their representation in a pinball game that is displayed
on a huge screen in front of them. Also, there is one
ADA station that guests of all heights can use a joystick
to control their pinball.
This is the Sega driving game that was formerly located
in Innoventions at Epcot. Up to 8 players can compete
in a big screen driving game.
Ride the Comix
This gives you the ability to immerse yourself in a comic
book world via virtual reality. You handle a saber,
which you use to fight various villains. The animation
and control in this game are excellent. But..be
warned, if you have a bad back, the seats you rest on
are very uncomfortable, and could give you some problems.
Invasion! An Extraterrorestrial Encounter
This is an attraction where three gunners and one pilot
attempt to rescue as many colonists as possible and neutralize
(yes, neutralize) as many aliens as you can in 3 1/2 minutes. A minimum of two people is recommended.
Radio Disney Song-maker
in the Create Zone, this attraction will allow guests
to create an original song by selecting the style of
music, song title, lyrics, and either a male or female
singer. You will be able to mix and match from
more than 2 billion different combinations to create
a truly unique song . Once finished, you can purchase
your song (complete in it's own Jewel case, and you
can even select the art work for the cover!). The CD can then be purchased at the Guest Gallery!
Height Requirement of 51"
On this amazing attraction, you step up to a console,
and are guided through the process of creating your
own roller coaster by the virtually annoying Bill Nye
the Science Guy. You have the option of inserting corkscrews,
loops, breaks in the track, speed up sections and straight-aways
to build "the ultimate roller coaster". You
can also take the easy way out and use a predesigned
coaster (but that's not as fun as creating your own!).
Once finished, you step up to a pitch and roll simulator,
where you RIDE the roller coaster you just created,
complete with every 360 degree turn and bank you create.
The experience is AWESOME. This will certainly
rank as one of the highlights at Disney Quest.
to 18 guests can take a mini-course in animation.
Guests are seated at computer desks, and are given instruction
in how to draw like a Disney animator. When you're
finished, you can go to the Guest Gallery and pick up
your masterpiece, along with a certificate of completion.
Sid's Create A Toy
you walk up to any one of about 10 consoles and use
a joystick to navigate through all the doll parts strewn
about Sid's room. You can pick up various pieces to
create your own doll. When you are finished, you can
go to the Guest Gallery (which is different from GUEST
SERVICES) area and purchase the doll you just created
!! There are 64 unique items (this refers to common
parts...every arm has a matching counterpart, so it's
only counted once) to use in creating your doll!!
There are some neat features to several of the parts.
For example, the baby doll head has eyes that blink,
skeleton parts glow in the dark, the wheels actually
roll. Toy kits come with extra connectors so you
can stick all the appendages out of one socket, or put
two toys together (this is only available if you purchase
more than one toy..there is no option in the game for
You sit in front of a mirror, then have your picture
taken (which appears on a screen in front of you).
From there you have all sorts of tools to distort your
face, add different eyes, ears, noses, mouths, etc. At the end, you can opt to purchase your picture at
the Guest Gallery.
Buzz Lightyear's AstroBlaster
Requirement of 51"
is a slightly modified version of old fashioned
bumper cars, except here they are called "astroblasters".
Instead of just bumping into your opponent, you
can shoot big nerf like balls at them called "asteroids".
The asteroids are collected as you drive over
them. The objective is to aim at the pink
starbursts on the front and sides of your opponents
astroblaster, when firing. A direct hit
causes your opponent to lose control and spin
360 degrees. The astroblaster has Plexiglas
windows and seats 2.
Midway on the Moon
This is set up in much the same style as a standard
arcade. This is a great location for younger
kids, with games like Skee-Ball which issue you
coupons that can be redeemed for prizes.
IntergalacTicket Trading Post
The tickets that you win on games in the Midway
and at other locations throughout DisneyQuest,
can be traded here for prizes.
