Starcade

Hi all!

I just came back from DL yesterday and I wanted to report that all those 1980s video games that were over in Flynn's Arcade during Electronica are all over at the Starcade now!

I was walking out of Space Mountain and Fix It Felix caught my eye as I had just finished watching Wreck It Ralph the night before (good movie by the way). As I walked in I noticed all the other video games and a BIG smile came over my face!

The cool thing was that most of the people playing the games were adults 30-50! Let the kids have the hi tech games....I'll be over here playing Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Donkey Kong!

They are on the first floor where the Wreck It Ralph meet and greet used to be.

Nothing says "tomorrow" like video games from 30 years ago.

This is such a waste of space. Would be so much better if they put in a restaurant into this space or maybe a small Star Wars themed attraction or heck even character greeting.

Star Tours takes place a long time ago, Buzz Lightyear isn't the future, Astro Orbiter is.. well 'nuff said. Point is little to nothing in Tomorrowland says "Tomorrow" at all.

I'll take the arcade! I'm very excited to play some of those games when I visit.

You are kidding!! The 6 year old is obsessed with Wreck It Ralph and is very curious about all of those old games. We are going to Disney on Monday and I can't wait to show her. Thanks!!!

I dont think there is enough room for any sort of restaurant or attraction unless they took out the Captain EO theater and the Star Trader.

I personally LOVE the fact the old video games are there. I can play those! These new games require so much more coordination that I dont have!

I had heard rumors of them eventually moving the Jedi Academy to the theater. I dont know if thats true or not.

I spent a decent amount of time in the Starcade during my last trip, which is the first time I can ever recall spending any amount of time in there. On previous visits it's all been claw machines and the table scraps of the arcade industry, so it was a welcome change to see some of the old-school arcade machines in their place.
