I have two excited boys (13 & 10) who had a question about DisneyQuest,when you pay the admission fee, should they be prepared with a pocketful of quarters to use when playing the numerous arcade games? They can't wait to visit this huge gameroom.

No pocket full of quarters required! The vast majority of games and activities at DisneyQuest are included in the price of admission. There are a limited number of games of skill where you can win prizes, which do cost a small amount to play. Even for these games you don't need quarters, but you do need to purchase a game card. Any of the other games, including video games, are included in the cost of admissions.
I was at Disney Quest a few weeks ago for several hours doing "research" (tough "work", huh?), and I didn't spend a cent beyond the cost of admission. I had a great time, and I'm sure that your "excited boys" will have an even better time.
By the way, DisneyQuest can be a great option on your first or last day at WDW, since it really only requires about 3-4 hours to experience most of the games and activities. I was there for a little over three hours and easily did all of the "headliner" activities, and several others as well. Of course your experience with "excited boys" may vary! ;-)
Also, while you are there be sure to try out "Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold" -- it uses almost the exact same 3-D gaming technology as the new Toy Story Midway Mania attraction in Disney's Hollywood Studios. It is a very fun group/family activity! ºoº
