    Hi! We are interested in visiting downtown disney,1 st time there,sounds amazing,dd 13 would love disney quest how much time do you think is needed to play there?how much time to spend at dtd?we have dinner adr nightly at res,don't want to miss any of them


    Our family has has an annual pass to DisneyQuest for the past year and have loved every minute of our time there!  If you haven't been before, you could spend almost an entire day there alone playing vintage video games like Galaga and PacMan, and virtual attractions like my favorite: Cyberspace Mountain, a roller coaster simulation ride!

    Although you can probably gadge how long you'll want to play the arcade games, Cyberspace Mountain takes a solid 30 to 45 minutes because sometimes you'll stand in line to build your roller coaster, and you'll always stand in line to ride it. Our family has yet to be able to ride the Pirates of the Caribbean Battle for Gold because the line has been too long (at least 45 minutes to an hour) to ride. Give yourself a solid 3 to 4 hours minimum as you will enter on a middle floor and it'll take you a while just to get your bearings!

    DisneyQuest opens at 11:30 a.m. and sits on the West Side of the Downtown Disney campus--and on the opposite end from Disney Marketplace, where most of the best Disney shopping is located. Because most of the shops around it don't open until 10:30 a.m. (restaurants open at 11:00 a.m), I like to start my day at the Marketplace. Most shops at Disney Marketplace open at 9:30 a.m., I grab lunch there and then take the 10-minute stroll to DisneyQuest. If you have time, head back to the Marketplace to hit your favorites and leave as the dinner crowd arrives!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
