    How much money are the arcades?

    Hi there, Kaylee!

    Thanks so much for your question! I always get excited when I have a chance to point guests toward cool Disneyland Park history.

    While there isn't a traditional video game arcade inside the Disneyland Resort theme parks anymore, you can enjoy some very cool vintage and antique games with just a bit of change! The games I'll share here are all priced between a penny and fifty cents (prices subject to change). Let's take a virtual stroll around Disneyland Park to find them.

    On Main Street, U.S.A. you can visit the Penny Arcade that shares space with Candy Palace to find four vintage arcade experiences:

    • The fortune teller, Esmerelda, will enlighten you about your future. In fact, she's so eager to share her knowledge that if you download the Play Disney Parks app she will give you a fortune for free!
    • Test your strength with the True Grip Challenge. It's a lot harder than it looks!
    • View a vintage flipbook-style short through the Mutoscopes.
    • Help Pinocchio put on a show (this puppet still has strings) at this game toward the back of the shop. Don't miss the incredible Welte Orchestrion nearby, it is amazing to watch! 
    Moving over to Frontierland, you can take a shot at the Frontierland Shootin' Exposition. I love reading all the clever tombstones and signs hidden in this shooting gallery. There are almost 100 targets to choose from, so everyone is bound to hit something! You might also find a game starring Sherrif Woody in the Pioneer Mercantile where you can make him "reach for the sky" or dance. 

    Finally, there are two opportunities to put your pocket change to good use in Adventureland. Head over to the Adventureland Bazaar to have Shrunken Ned (he's the "head" shrink of the jungle, you know) share some of his slightly questionable medical advice. He just needs a look at your palm...and payment, obviously. Or work your way to the back of the shop to discover Aladdin's other lamp, where the resident genie will share a glimpse at your future. Listen close, he's a fast talker!

    Kaylee, whether you use your coins to learn your fortune or make a wish I hope you will have an amazing visit to the parks! 

    Keep moving forward!
