    Penny arcade

    There isn't a GREAT deal they've taken out of Disneyworld that I miss but the Penny Arcade would have to be one of them. I went in '90 and had such a good time there and feel they kinda ruin Walt's original idea with Main St. by taking it out and replacing it with yet another gift shop.

    A few of the old Penny Arcade games from Main Street have been relocated to the lobby area of the Board Walk. There are a few others at the train station (up stairs) at the Magic Kingdom. The old nickleodean machines are as they were when they were built with some added safety measures. The horse race and other machines are no longer in service but are for display only.

    I agree. I always remember my dad spending time there when we made our family trips. I was disappointed when I went back and saw it was no longer there.

    They HAD to take the Penny Arcade out. It was taking up valuable space for more t-shirts and junk made in china.
