The Penny Arcade is one of the opening day attractions/shops at Disneyland in California. As the name suggests, the Penny Arcade features sorts of video games from the early 1900s featuring the fortune teller Esmeralda (one of the three fortune-telling machines at Disneyland), Mutoscopes, Cail-o-Scopes, and other old school-style arcade games considered to be extremely rare to find nowadays, which guests can interact with to remind them of playing at arcades back in the early years compared to arcade games used in modern times.
In addition to the facility itself having old school-style arcade games, the Penny Arcade facility also houses the products - usually candies, pastries, or souvenir tins which guests can buy inside the facility. In the back of the facility is a self-playing pipe organ which plays Disney songs automatically at occasional minutes. Manufactured in Freiburg, Germany in 1907, the pipe organ itself was purchased by Walt Disney in 1953 to which the instrument has remained in the Penny Arcade since 1955.
Within the Play Disney Parks App recently released in 2019, guests can approach Esmeralda's machine for them to receive a story regarding the fortune tellers when activating them to get further interactions through the mobile app. To do so, guests must physically approach Esmeralda when at the park so that they can get further interactions with her via mobile app.
The Magic Kingdom version of the Penny Arcade was a former arcade area at the Main Street U.S.A. area, which was one of the opening day attractions/shops at the park on October 1, 1971. Like its Disneyland counterpart, it featured all sorts of old school-style arcade games such as having a fortune teller, Mutoscopes, Cail-o-Scopes, and other old school-style arcade games which guests could interact with at the area as well as modern video games. The attraction premanently closed on March 19, 1995 and was replaced by Main Street Athletic Club, which opened on June 28, 1995.
The Tokyo Disneyland version of the Penny Arcade is located at the World Bazaar area, which was one of the opening day attractions/shops at the park on April 15, 1983. The World Bazaar's counterpart of Penny Arcade not only features fortune-telling machines but also other old school-style arcade games such as claw machines (specifically the 1930s era variant of claw machines) or other old school-style arcade sports games.
