    Hi, I was planning to take my 7 and 5 year old sons to Disney Quest, but was told by a friend that they are to young for it. Do you think a 7 and 5 year old would have fun their?

    Hi Nachole,

    I went to DisneyQuest a couple of weeks ago with my family.  My boys are 6 & 9.  I think you'll find people who think DisneyQuest is appropriate for those ages & other that will think you should wait until they are a little older.

    If your sons are gamers, they may love it.  They have 5 levels with different games & attractions on each level.  You'll find everything from old school games like air hockey & Guitar Hero to a Virtual Jungle Cruise and a human pinball game.  There are some super cool attractions like Buzz Lightyear's AstroBlaster (bumper cars with asteroid-firing cannons) & CyberSpace Mountain where you design and ride your own roller coaster.

    It is loud in DisneyQuest so for any one who has any issues with sensitivity to noise, this would not be a good choice. Some of the attractions have height requirements - the tallest one is 51". 

    If your tickets include the Water Park Fun & More Option, then its certainly worth it to check out DisneyQuest if you have a day with some free time.  If your tickets don't include that option & you'd be paying admission, I'd wait until they are older and are able to enjoy some of the unique interactive attractions that have height requirements.  If your resort has an arcade, I'd visit that instead.

    If you do decide to go, I'd recommend going on a morning and arriving when it opens. It can get especially crowded on inclement weather days when people are looking for something to do indoors.   Regular hours of operation are currently Sunday - Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday - Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. (always subject to change).

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
