Disney Quest closing in July

In not so surprising news, the closing date for Disney Quest was finally announced as July 2, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

Given that they have pretty much left the place to 'rot' over the last 2 years or so, it was pretty evident they were going to close it sooner than later.

What do you reckon will go in its place?

I saw the NBA experience popping up again. But I thought they canned that idea. Haven't really been online too much today but it was on the Disney Blog page.

I think they should put a multi-level Toy Story Mania that lasts an hour in there. Seriously.

Or character laser tag.

Oh my gosh, either of these would be amazing! And probably a much bigger draw then NBA.

We've visited Disney Quest many times but will never set foot in the NBA thing.

NBA? ... meh.

Honestly, besides the restaurants, there are less and less things that interest me at Disney Springs. I can foresee a time where it will no longer be part of our trip plans.

Only thing that interests me is the Marketplace. I like the shops there. So basically we spend maybe half a day there laugh

There was an NBA restaurant at City Walk when it first opened, may still be there. It was never crowded. Having trouble understanding how this is going to be a draw. Indoor basketball courts? This is a head scratcher.

The NBA restaurant has gone now as has the NASCAR restaurant. The Chocolate Emporium has taken its place I think.

We used to go to Downtown Disney for Disney Quest first and foremost. After that we visited for the long-gone Pollo Campero and for Earl of Sandwich, also the Ghirardelli shop (candy, not ice cream), World of Disney, and Raglan Road for a drink and some music at the bar. For Disney Springs we'll go for Earl of Sandwich and Blaze Pizza, the Ghirardelli store, World of Disney, and Raglan Road if we want some music with our drinks. Maybe D-Luxe Burger if we try it and like it. So Disney Springs will not be a must-visit location for us. But I'm sure they won't care. Disney Springs has clearly been redesigned to appeal to hard-core recreational shoppers, and we hate shopping.

There is still so much there I want to check out.... The rooftop coke bar, one of those shakes at the new "Observatory", Blaze, Deluxe, The Edison when ever it opens, and a few more.

We are not big basketball fans even with Blondie playing now lol. I guess if she keeps it up we MAY take her there but she doesn't even watch it on tv...

We do love UNI QLO very cool shop and great prices on t-shirts. Actually, most things in there are well priced.

I can't say that I'll ever go to the NBA Experience, short of getting a press invite, but it's really not something that I would pay for. Just not my thing for any reason. However, sports are big business for Disney these days and I can see it being a draw to plenty of people. Just not me.
