    We are considering getting 1 day pass to DisneyQuest. I am disabled, use a wheelchair, due to lower back problems. Considering my diability, is there enough to see and do there to be worth the cost of admission for 2 adults or should we skip this?

    Lori:

    My family enjoys DisneyQuest, even have annual passes, but I am honestly conflicted as to whether it would be a good value for y'all to buy a one-day pass.  My dad is a para and transfers are possible, but not always a possibility.  A guest would definitely get more out of the arcade--especially its headline attractions like CyberSpace Mountain--if you can transfer.

    There is one elevator that accesses all of the floors, but the drawback for a wheelchair user might be the thick carpets (except in the arcade area that has rubber flooring, albeit, it's quite bumpy) and narrow passages on the arcade floor, which can be almost impassable on rainy days when folks line up for games.  If you enjoy classic arcade games, they have the typical ones you're familiar with, however, many are not at the lower heights of a wheel chair user.

    Several of my favorite games you would not have to transfer for: Pinball Slam, Pirates of the Caribbean or Aladdin.  And you can certainly design your own coaster for CyberMountain--AND to specifications that would accommodate your back, (I'm thinking you may not want to go upside down!).  However, even though there is a lift to get you to the loading bay for the coaster simulators, you still will have to transfer down two steps into the simulator and out afterward.

    In a nutshell: if you can transfer and handle some jarring from the interactive rides, I'd do it.  If not, I'd visit ESPN Club and its arcade or the one at your resort.  Last thought: www.allears.net has a good description of the attractions inside DisneyQuest along with a short list of those that require transfers. It would be worth a skim under their heading "Beyond the Theme Parks."

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!
