    IIRC you're not old enough actually have experienced arcades from the 70s and 80s but the old Starcade as well as many other So Cal arcades was actually a lot like Flynn's. In this case Disney doesn't have to do a thing. Theming it too dramatically would in fact IMO take away from the feel of it being an arcade being from the 80s. Arcades back in the day, if they were themed at all, would only maybe have had a wall decoration or a picture here and there -- that's it. If you want to have it themed to Flynn's (or in other words 80s style) the best thing is to throw machines in there and minimally theme the environment. Ironically theming it specifically to Flynn's may actually detract from that theme more than enhance it.

    If in fact you do remember these things please accept my apologies. But I think what is happening here is a great addition to the park.

    The Starcade is the best place to wait and do something while your friends use the restroom after riding Space Mountain. You might not spend a half hour there, but I'm glad it's there and fleshed out with games that focus on fun and not prizes.

    Bigger news to me than PFF. Different strokes, you know. Is it only the downstairs or has the upstairs reopened? And are those photographs of all the games or are there more? I don't see Robotron...

    Putting in the arcade games used in Flynn's Arcade in DCA's Electronica is nice for those of us into those 80s arcade games. But this round of nostalgia feels like - Just one more go-around for the Starcade that once had those very games from the start ....... before....................... (???)

    again ....... my wishful thinking.
    Interesting thought. A first step to a better Tomorrowland. I'll sort of believe it when Disney announces the return of the Rocket Jets atop the former PeopleMover loading/unloading station.

    Darn, I never took the time to have my picture taken with Ralph and umm Sara Silverman's character. I'm glad the arcade is back. We've spent a little bit of time there. Ditto on Pac-Man; it's my bf's favorite and it would be a shame if it wasn't back.

    Looks a tad plain in there. Maybe a little space theming on the walls could help...

    Just a rumor, but I was told by a CM that it will be $700 within the next few months.

    Neither of those have any place in Tomorrowland either.
    Well...I just like them putting some theme in instead of just...here are some machines...play them

    The arcades I went into as a kid were dark and felt similar to Flynns this just looks like a open space with arcade games next to the wall....I'm just saying this is Disney....do something cooler...make it feel unique

    Those photos look like they're from a run-down mall, not one of the world's premiere theme parks.

    *sigh* That TL refurb cannot get here fast enough.

    To me Pac-Man is the KING of the 80's Arcade he needs to be in that room where the others are.

    Hardly. Outside Disneyland - where are there arcades anymore? They were once everywhere, but today few exist, and are sparsely attended at best. No one plays the big games anymore - seriously. You have much better games available on your phones today, and don't soak you fifty cents to a buck a whack. Starcade has no relationship to Tomorrowland as they are a passť technology. If they turned Starcade into something like Midway Mania, there may be hope. But as it is - it is an old thought, old toy, old interest, and sums up how hip and edgy Disney Management really is...
