From Tampa we drove to Orlando to hook up with Shirin and Anna, and we
also got to catch up with Karyn and Derek. The eight of us then spent the rest of the
day at DisneyQuest, where we had a fabulous time. It was a
Sunday night in the wintertime, and the place wasn't too
crowded. Although we couldn't actually walk straight onto any of the
attractions, we never had to wait more than about fifteen minutes for
any one ride.
First, we had to play Aladdin, of
course. The VR Studio's two rides were our main reason for
coming here today. This was Dawn's first chance to see the Aladdin
and Hercules installations, and my big chance to show off to everyone
We all had to put on those silly plastic
beanies while we waited in line.
And then we played, in two groups of four. David, Dawn, Shirin,
and Anna played in the first group (and didn't finish in time);
Michael, Susie, Karyn, and Derek played in the second (and
Michael reached the genie first).
After Aladdin, we played Hercules, then Virtual Jungle Cruise, and
then we needed some coffee.
And then it was back to the games. We spent at least an hour at
the redemption games, mainly playing Whack-A-Alien. Between the
eight of us, we earned well over 300 points, which we never cashed
in--I guess that Pez dispenser will have to wait for next time.
After Whack-A-Alien, we spent a few more hours playing. We did some classic video games, a couple of rounds of Astro Blaster (the bumper cars), the obligatory ride on Virtual Space Mountain, and we finally finished the evening off with a few rounds of air hockey.
