    It was an awesome underground (underwater, actually) video game room at the Disneyland Hotel, on the waterfront of their Seaports of the Pacific marina (which was itself awesome). It opened in December 1982.

    Yes it was awesome! Oh how I miss it, as a kid it was a fun place to go by yourself. When you were done you could go play with the boats.

    My son still talks about how much fun he had at the Marina arcade.

    On a typical day we would take a break at the hotel in the early afternoon. My kids would go to the arcade, my wife would browse the shops, and I would cool off at the Sierra Pool. Before we went back to the park, we often ate lunch at the Monorail Cafe or Mazie's Pantry.

    Those were fun times.

    Sounds like the regular schedule for many people. The Hotel was always an oasis to get away from the crowds and there was plenty of fun activities there too....including doing nothing and just relaxing by the pool.

    Seeing those pics reminds me of how much I miss the Marina. Much better scenery than those Monorail slides.

    I have 64 more pictures from the 1980's. Got them from a very special Disney friend who worked there for over 40 years.

    I remember it very well. I would take my kids there after the park closed and we would drop tokens till we were sleepy.
