Permits filed for demolition of DisneyQuest

7 days ago in "Disney Quest"

Closed Disney Quest

DisneyQuest on the West Side at Disney Springs permanently closed on July 3, and permits have already been filed for its demolition.

The Notice of Commencement states 'Demo of structure and additional work" but does not provide a start date. Permits typically expire one year after being issued, and the the expectation is that the demolition of DisneyQuest will begin soon. (Thanks to danlb_2000 on the forums for spotting the permit filing)

Days after its closure, Disney auctioned off most of the video games that once were part of the indoor gaming attraction.

Replacing DisneyQuest will be The NBA Experience - a one-of-a-kind basketball-themed experience featuring hands-on activities that put guests of all ages right in the middle of NBA game action. There will be immersive NBA video productions and numerous interactive experiences, as well as a restaurant and a retail store. Plans were originally announced all the way back in 2015.

Disney has not yet provided an opening date.

Although not officially announced, it is expected that The NBA Experience will not take all up all of the former DisneyQuest footprint, and that at least one of other tenant may take up space in the area.
