Ode to Disney Quest

Disney Quest, Disney Quest,
I long to return there lest,
Iger and Rasulo (forgive me if I have the wrong name)take away my favorite fest.

Pirates of the Carribean,
We were 50 points from bein',
Record holders of the piratey crew.

On Cyber Space Mountain,
Though on fun I was countin',
I managed thrill points of only two.

Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters,
I avoided much disaster,
For in the Replay Zone did I play.

Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride,
If not for fun I'd lose my pride,
But my companions still saved the day.

In Ride the Comix,
I battled Virtual Pix,
With a ten ton laser sword by my side.

In the Jungle Cruise- Virtual,
We had but one set ritual,
Through the same path, we had to abide.

Despite my desire to be in several other places on Disney property (trust me, you'll hear about them all)- this post is in response to hearing the news that Disney Quest will be closing to make way for ESPN Sportszone. I've heard also that the Chicago Disney Quest is closing (or has closed), and this information may be confused with that news. If so, I appologize for panicking everyone. From what I can tell though- this is happening to the Disney Quest at Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World. Believe me, I'm going to be VERY sad to see it go. And very happy indeed if I find out that this is an unsubstantiated rumor.
Please forgive my poor poetry, and if I've left out your favorite attraction- too bad. I'm only writing about what *I* like about Disney Quest- I didn't ride/play everything, and I didn't actually like Invasion! . Mostly because I thought it would be based on Alien Encounters from Tomorrowland (another wonderful attraction that Disney decided to close. Oh, and TimeKeeper. And many others, but those are the recent ones.) and found out that it wasn't.
That's all I have for this post.
