    We were in Disneyland in October. The kids loved the old machines for 1cent that allowed for fortune tellers or old fashioned movies. It was on main st. Going to disneyworld in 2 weeks. Do they have something similar? Thanks

    Hi Bonnie,

    The Penny Arcade on Main Street U.S.A. was one of my fondest childhood memories at WDW and I miss it so much.  They used to have a magic and mask shop next door that me and my brother always spent our time in trying on all of the masks (the Darth Vader, Chewbacca and Storm Trooper ones were my favorites to try on), it was a very sad day indeed when these 2 places closed their doors.  The Penny Arcade had not only some of the newer arcade games (back then), but also the vintage games and the moving picture machines as well (Charlie Chaplin was a hoot to look at).  The only machine that I have found in WDW after the Penny Arcade closed many years ago is a Fortune Telling machine which they had and is now located in a store with memorabilia merchandise in Downtown Disney (West Side), but apart from that machine I don't recall seeing them relocated anywhere else in WDW.

    Best wishes,
