  • Starcade repainted

    I noticed yesterday that the bottom floor of the starcade was repainted. Those '70s style sports graphics are gone and replaced with space scenes. If you look upstairs, you notice they started repainting the walls blue and white. The old space mural with the astronauts is still up there.
    When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true, but because of distance, not for millions of years.

        Unfortunately, yes. As well as the white tile around the planters.

            I've always wondered why someone would go to Disneyland and want to play arcade games.

                Since they are repainting and freshening the Starcade up, I think its safe to say that they are opening this entire area up again. Now the question is what? Will it be an arcade again? Will it become another pin trading spot? Or will it be something else? What does everybody think?

                  I took some rather crude images of the new Starcade murals and ramp, but it's such a zoo in there that I gave up after just two photos... and bad photos at that:

                  Maybe this can give you folks some fuzzy (and I do me FUZZY) ideas about what's in there now. I too am curious about the top level of the Starcade.

                    Pin trading upstairs would be fine with me. Gives the pin traders a comfy area to "work" and get those tables out of the way in Store Command.

                      So is the X-wing still up stairs? Maybe they should move all the X-Box and Play station games from inoventions (I think thats what it's called) and put them up there.

                        Ahhh...that is, indeed, the magic of Disneyland. You can spend the entire day...not ride a single ride...and not spend a single dime...and still have a fun-filled day!

                            The X-wing is still hanging up there. It looks really dusty and the ceiling is looking rather scary. We should be able to see the x-wing when space mountain reopens.

                            I say make the area a mini-DisneyQuest. They could put in a bank of virtual space mountain simulators up there. Also put in POTC and the magic carpet VR game.

                              that'd be a lot of fun...I hope they do something similar.

                                Upstairs might be a good place for AP processing, too.

                                  I thought the upstairs level was closed due to structural damage caused by the Rocket Rods...?

                                    well, if they are painting up there, there must be plans for it to reopen. It was probably closed to save money, and now it will reopen since Space Mountain will I'm sure by insanely popular, breathing life into Tomorrowland.

                                      They could also just be painting so that when people look in the windows while in line for Space they don't wonder what that weird delapidated warehouse ride is with a dusty x-wing hanging from the ceiling.

                                        Is that an old "The Lost World:Jurassic Park" arcade machine I see in one of those pics? Jeez thats almost 10 years old nothing "Tommorow" about it. Ironically enough, this is coming from a HUGE Jurassic Park fan
