What's Going on With DisneyQuest?
A couple of weeks ago, I made my first visit to Disney Springs. I enjoyed what Disney's done so far and think it outpaces Downtown Disney by a mile. The place was packed, so I can see a long-term winner here (should be worth noting it was 2 days before Christmas though).
Having said that, I was shocked to see DisneyQuest was still open. I thought that was supposed to close last year. Whatever happened to that and the plans for the NBA restaurant/experience?
Just looked it up- I guess Disney and the NBA had a falling out, so they're looking for something else to replace DisneyQuest instead of the NBA Experience thing. So they're just keeping it open until they can find a replacement.
Interesting, I wonder what NBA had in mind that it needed the full building space. Or why Disney couldn't redo the exterior to be more eye-appealing.
Frankly, I am a bit surprised they just don't copy the ESPN Zone from Anaheim and put it there.
I don't know if I'm in the minority here, but I just went for my birthday this past weekend and I still am in love with Disney Quest. Sure, most everything in that building is dated, but it's all still very fun and charming like Pirates, Cyberspace Mountain, Astroblasters, and Mighty Ducks. It's the last place in Disney World that still has an Animation Academy after the Star Wars Launch Bay conversion at Studios. So I, for one, am glad that it lives at least another year and NOT being replaced, as far as we can tell, by a sports-themed venue.
Anthony - There is already an ESPN Zone at WDW at the Beach and Boardwalk complex. There was also an All Star Cafe at the Wide Wide World of Sports Complex, now ESPN branded too. I don't that that was successful.
Surely there's an opportunity here. I understand it's some form of dated arcade right?
