Best arcade at Disney Resort??

What would you say the best arcade at a Disney Resort would be? Is there any other resort where you can get tickets and win prizes besides Contemporary?

My kids had a fantastic time at the AoA resort arcade in September. They have lots of games, great variety and the "tickets" loaded onto their arcade card to take to the prize area.

AoA has the best I've seen. And we've been to Poly, BW, FtW, BC/YC, SSR, VB, & Contemporary's arcade.

The other plus that AoA had, besides what the previous poster stated, was that it had seating! The seating is by the only entrance/exit, so I was able to sit down and chill-out with my little one while I waited for my older kids, they had a blast, it was great.

We liked the arcade at All Star Sports, but we're definitely trying AOA's arcade this time!

Contemporary Resort is the best and then,surprisingly,all 5 Value Resorts(all have prize redemption) have the next best far ahead of the Mods and Deluxes.

Disney Quest does have multiple floors and my kids liked it. However, if it hadn't been included in the waterparks and more option we would not have spent the money to go there. We stayed at Pop and my kids loved the arcade. We ate at AoA one night and stopped in at their arcade. I preferred the look because it was brand new, but my kids both still preferred Pops.....

My 8 year old remembers a (Tron) pinball machine at the arcade at POFQ. But it's been a year and a half since he was in that arcade, and I don't think they had the tickets and prizes.

Interesting, thanks for the info. I had a hunch that pinball would be impossible to find at the WDW arcades, especially as arcades turn more into redemption centers. Makes sense that Disney would have the Tron table, at least a year and a half ago when there was more Tron everywhere.
