We strolled along Downtown Disney, stopping at the Magic Shop where we saw a couple of card tricks. From there we went over to Disney Quest…. Jordan loved Disney Quest… We were there for hours…. His favorite part was a Pirates of the Caribbean ride/game that he went on several times and got Joe so involved in it that he went on it 3 times with Jordan and another man there with his son…. There was so much to do there for my family, that it was incredible. It was my personal least favorite of all that we did on the trip, but mostly because there wasn’t a lot that I could do there, but more on that later...

We had lunch at Disney Quest, which was the Cheesecake Factory Express… I was disappointed as I love the Cheesecake Factory in Boston, MA and as this was an Express restaurant they did not have the wonderful salads that I thought that they would have, so I kind of set myself up for that one… What we did have was good though…

My father got a little adventurous at DQ and decided to Jump in the back of the raft with Jordan and go on a virtual white water rafting ride through a treacherous jungle filled with prehistoric dinosaurs! They were both given paddles with wheels and placed in front of a screen in a raft on a section of inflatable “water.” The way that they paddled was the way that the raft went… The ride was rough and a couple of times I thought for sure that my Dad was going to be tossed overboard! Lol! It ws sooooo funny watching them! I think my father laughed the entire trip, which they “virtually” did not survive.

We stayed at DQ until well after dinner time…

While Disney Quest has something for most, it is not very handicapped accessible.

DQ does have a couple of elevators, but they sounded creaky on our last visit (December 2007) and that is probably because they were! Myself and my family actually got stuck in one! We did make it out, but management was less than friendly… Although Disney has apologized for our ordeal, I’d like to see a work order for a ramp for those of us who would rather take the stairs but cannot! Lol!

Most of the activities available are for the able bodies, although there are a few things that nearly anyone can do, especially if you are able to transfer out of your chair… so if you are in a group of people and want to check it out all is not lost. If you are on your own and in a chair, especially an electric chair or ECV this is probably not the place for you. Do check out the Disney website to see the layout and read the descriptions of the activities before you decide and be prepared to enjoy the experiences of those around you.
