  • Midway Games May Be Gone Quickly

    Well to the glee of most of you here. It has just popped up on the Disneyland calendar that the Midway Games will be closing for renovations June 20. However, I'm doubting it will be a refurbishment, I'm guessing it will probably more along the lines of taking some dynamite and blowing the whole thing down.

    I'm guessing this would take the whole summer and more of the off-season to do. Should be very interesting to see what they have in store for that area.

    I hope they are gone. Those game rigged just like Carnys do it. Disney shouldn't do that.

        Actually from what i have heard they are removing only one or two. The ones closest to the new attraction. This will allow for the reconfiguration of the CM backstage acces tunnel that will now be removed and is inside the construction zone. The other ones will start their placemaking project.

          Removing a couple? Interesting... it should be interesting to see what Disney does with these as years go on and DCA changes.

            Hopefully this is the placemaking project finally gaining steam. Nice to see work starting on more than just Toy Story.
            I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

              I hardly see anyone go to those things anyway. Maybe if they actually had cool disney prizes...

                  Thank goodness... the midway games, and probably Paradise Pier in its entirety, were probably the least "Disney" aspect of the entire resort.

                    Get rid of them. You can go to Knott's and Six Flags to play those crappy games.

                      And at least at Six Flags you're getting ripped off realistically. You know when passing that you've got no chance.
                      There's no such thing as too many books. Now go bring the 18-wheeler around.

                        I have never been able to figre out why Disney would give away non-Disney plushies. Spend money trying to buy generic plushie crap or save the money for a real Disney item? Hmmmm what to do....


                        Sheesh the games should have got old Disney gear before the Character Warehouses.

                          Yeah, my take on the midway games is that you should get at least one free play with admission (then pay after that), and the prizes should NOT be generic carnival prizes. Lame.

                            Even if it is one or two that are being removed- it is still one or two less then before!:yea:

                              No kidding. that's what keeps me away. I mean, COME ON! You're a Disney park! Give Disney prizes! What genius decided on the non-brand crud! Even the OC fair gives better prizes (I love my Bart Simpson I got this past summer)
