DisneyQuest closed to arriving guests due to reaching capacity

The Accuweather radar shows that all of central and northern Florida is receiving heavy, constant rain all day today. Just miserable looking on radar, quite frankly.

What is the building capacity of DisneyQuest? I haven't been in that building in years and years as I don't play video games, but it can't be that many people and it should be posted over a entry door somewhere. Maybe a few thousand at most? That's like one good hour of operation at a high capacity ride like Pirates or Small World or Haunted Mansion. And less than the truly monster people-eaters like Carousel of Progress, PeopleMover, or the WDW Railroad.

Not many people can fit inside DisneyQuest in the grand scheme of things operationally at WDW.

I bet it must be hell in there. I have been at DisneyQuest on very quiet days and still found crowds and lines to be insufferable.

Blink, blink. Breathe, breathe. Day in, day out.
I've never been. Is it worth the price at all? Like, even during slow days at WDW? My family has always thought the price for that place was very unreasonable

Its worth it if you like to feel what a state of the art arcade felt like in 1996. Great concept that never lived up to its full potential.

Edit: just realized someone else asked the same question I was asking about capacity.

really wish they'd renovate DQ

its pretty bad that the new parking garages practically contain more technology than DQ

anyone have any updates on the removal of the virtual reality game and the conversion of that space to eating area, since dining is just what everyone wants to do at DQ after pay 50 bucks to get in.

Since I was there ..Here it is....In all it's Dissapointment!

All ships are still entact


They are now completely gutted and covered with black fabric and are blocked by a huge wooden box

And the Queue areas were convereted to "Seating Areas"


What I find Strange tho is I can understand doing it for the 5th floor...

But why the Fourth as it's out of any seating area from Wonderland cafe..

so dumb,

they could of of switched and opened the 4th floor and only closing the 5th floor, since they rarely opened both levels at the same time anyways.

but if your going to close the space ship definitely should of used the space, put some booths in it or something, would be a fun place to sit in the spaceship, maybe add some star lights

I wouldn't say it was worth the money. The lifts were cool when they had the Genie in them, but it wasn't Robin Williams voicing him which sucked.
We didn't go on a busy day but most of the attractions had massive queues, there were rude, obnoxious little children running around barging infront of people to get to the consoles; I was walking up to one on a few occassions and was pushed aside for some child to have a go. No parents around! The one simulation we did get on was where you had to rescue civilians. We didn't do very well, and it was just an old, tired game.
The whole place smelt funny and we just didn't stay long. About 30 minutes. We only went because it was on our tickets and we had never done it before.

Have been there when it closed for capacity. No fun at all. Zero. My days of waiting more than 10 minutes for a video game passed about 30 years ago.

We enjoy going to DQ, BUT ONLY when we have Premium Annual Passes. If we actually paid per visit, there is very little chance we would go. Our daughter (10) loves Cyber SpaceMountain and the Aladdin Magic Carpet game. Sometimes we do the Pirate ship game. We all enjoy pinball and a few games of Pac Man and Centipede serve to make us feel a little younger. Completing all of that on a less crowded day equals maybe an hour to an hour and a half of diversion, so worth (at most) the cost of a movie - and we only ever go to matinees.

I had the very same experience last year. It was included in our ticket package, so I went to try it. It really wasn't anything out of the ordinary, I was expecting something on a grander scale. It's just outdated and overpriced. If it weren't for those passes, I don't think I would've ever gone. Now more than ever, I'm sure I'll never step foot in there unless they completely revamp the place and keep up with the technology. We are in the next generation of gaming, I would've thought Disney would've been on top of that.

Make it a multi-level themed bars/clubs/lounges/restaurants and call it a day :)

I really do wish they'd completely update it. I haven't been in there in years and years. It seems like such valuable property.

Haven't been in about 5 years. However, even at the time I'd say it was only worth it if you purchased the water hopper and more option making it essentially free. I'd never pay $40/pp or whatever the current price is. One advantage of having bought non expiring park tickets with water parks and more is that the water parks and more last forever even after the park tickets are used up. Still have 6 or 7 left as we only visit a water park or quest every few visits.
