The Starcade is a two-story video arcade located between the Star Trader and the exit of Space Mountain in Tomorrowland at Disneyland. It opened on May 27, 1977 along with Space Mountain. The games in the arcade use tokens, each one equal to the value of one quarter.

History

Since the late 1990s, the second story has been vacant and off-limits to guests. The speedramp escalators leading upstairs are still visible to guests, but blocked. A large X-Wing starfighter from Star Wars was previously hung from the ceiling above the speedramp escalators, but was moved to the more visible location of the Star Trader, following the opening of Star Tours: The Adventures Continue in 2011. The second story is currently used as storage space for arcade games from Flynn's Arcade, a feature of Disney California Adventure's now-defunct ElecTRONica nighttime entertainment. A large mural also covers the walls of the second story, which can be seen through the windows adjacent to the outdoor queue for Space Mountain. Windows alongside the PeopleMover track treated that attraction's passengers to views of the upper levels of the arcade until that attraction's closure in 1995. Since the PeopleMover's conversion to Rocket Rods in 1998, those windows have been blacked out.

In recent years, the lower level has been used as character meet-and-greet locations promoting Wreck-It Ralph in 2012 and Big Hero 6 in 2014. Overflow retail space from the adjacent Star Trader has gradually taken over much of the lower level, with far less arcade games offered than in previous years. Until the release of Wreck-It Ralph, the Starcade hosted mainly contemporary/modern arcade games. Since that film's release, the Starcade has hosted primarily retro arcade games from the 1970s and 1980s.

At this time, the Starcade is completely closed following the Big Hero 6 meet-and-greet. Whether or not it will reopen is not known, though likely, as its signage is still up.
