Disney Quest is Set to Close Once Again...

Roughly one year ago, we found out that Disney Quest would be disappearing as Downtown Disney redeveloped into Disney Springs. Months passed and there was very little information added to that particular story from the Disney Company. While the original plan was to transform the space into The NBA Experience, it was rumored when construction did not begin that contractual reasons delayed the closing and redesign of this particular section of Disney Springs.

While I do not know for sure if that was the legitimate reason, if so, it has certainly been solved because it has been released today that The NBA Experience will in fact replace Disney Quest after it closes for good on July 3rd, 2017. Honestly, we'll see if that actually happens or not. Even if that is the case, it will likely be the very last piece of the Disney Springs puzzle that will be completed. With Planet Hollywood Observatory already open (just a few days ago), and Paddlefish opening in the near future, that only really leaves The Edison and The NBA Experience left on the construction plans.

Either way, it will certainly be a long time before we see The NBA Experience debut. Personally, I know there is a variety of mixed opinions on Disney Quest, and quite honestly I have been a few times when it was free, but I highly doubt I would pay the rather extreme prices required to experience it without such a discount. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed it when I did go, but I can see why they may want to replace it. 

Unfortunately, what bothers me with this story is that they are replacing it with The NBA Experience. Sure, there's a lot of NBA fans out there, but Disney Springs right now is a very interesting variety of unique restaurants and typically this wouldn't  fall in the "interesting" or "creative" category for most Disney guests. Of course, we'll have to wait and see, but unfortunately it appears as if Disney Quest will be going away in the not-so-near future.

Know a Disney Quest fan? Share this post with them so they know what's coming! What is/was your favorite game at Disney Quest?
