    The Disney Parks Blog just posted this as well.

    Can't wait.

My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Does anyone know if they completely gutted the Penny Arcade? If I recall correctly they were rehabbing the organ. Other than that, though, the article seems to say "Hey, bigger Candy Palace! Better offerings at Gibson Girl! Oh, and the Penny Arcade is here too."

    I'm a bit concerned about exactly what state the reopened Penny Arcade will be in. If they expanded the ice cream and candy areas, doesn't that mean there will be less room to hold all the old penny games and machines? The size of the Penny Arcade has already been greatly reduced over the years, I don't want it to eventually suffer the same fate as WDW's.

    You know what's funny? When I first started reading Al's column (wherever it was) it was years and years and YEARS ago--I think I was on AOL!--and the topic that caught my eye was his complaints (I think) of the downsizing of the Penny Arcade. I guess some things never change.

    This'll be a great treat on my trip on the 5th. Looking forward to finally seeing the arcade again. Maybe I'll grab some ice cream too on my way out or something.

    From what I can tell, Refreshment Corner's indoor seating has been eliminated, having been taken over by Candy Palace. Also, the ice cream counter spans the entire back wall of the Gibson Girl. Here's a pic looking towards the right side of the counter:

    Well the Penny Arcade was already downsized so i don't think the machines would take up much space and if they did just move it the Crystal Arcade I think Disney can loose some plushies and T-shirts to keep arcade on Main Street.

    Not quite. The arcade offerings have been downsized somewhat; but not eliminated. What will be gained is better guest flow, higher capacity (hopefully faster moving and shorter lines). Plus due to being re-designed, these locations will now be up to current food safety codes. This remodel is a good thing.

    Seriously, how can they downsize it anymore than they already have?
