Disney World to Close Arcade Counters

Walt Disney World has started to close arcade counters, according to a report by the Orlando Sentinel.

The prize redemption counter at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort has already closed, with plans to close similar counters at Disney’s All-Star Sports, Pop Century, Contemporary and Art of Animation Resorts.

The Tomorrowland Arcade at Magic Kingdom will completely close on Feb. 8.

The reason for the change is unclear, though many suspect is has something to do with a state law introduced in 2013. The law prohibits unauthorized games of chance, and based on wording, includes arcade prizes.

The arcades may remain open at Disney World Resort Hotels, though prizes will no longer be available.
