    Walt Disney World lands Monopoly board spot

    Amy L. Edwards | Sentinel Staff Writer

    Orlando's Walt Disney World has replaced Illinois Avenue on the new Monopoly: Here & Now edition, the makers of the game board announced this morning.

    At $2.4 million for the Disney property, Orlando beat out other large American cities such as Phoenix and Honolulu, whose landmarks will cost $2.2 million each.

    New York City's Times Square took the top spot, replacing Atlantic City's Boardwalk, and will cost $4 million.

    Hasbro, maker of Monopoly, let people vote online in the Spring for the top landmark to represent each city and where the property would be located -- highest to lowest rent. The city with the most votes took the coveted priciest spot.

    The Here & Now edition also features new game pieces such as a laptop, McDonald's French fries and tennis shoes.

    Cool! I'm happy to see it made it. I voted a while back when they still had the polls open.

    Is that what our culture has become? An ode to all things fried? A McDonald's french fry piece? Lord have mercy! I am happy to see WDW on the game though. But I think they could have come up with better pieces.

    I guess it's kind of cool. It's just that I am kind of growing sick of the endless diffrent monopoly games there are already on the marketplace.
