Good Evening!
This day in Disney history October 8th, 2010: ElecTRONica and Flynns Arcade opened in DCA.

Disney catapulted us back to 1982, the days of crimped hair, when PAC-MAN was king, and
acid wash jeans were HOT!
ElecTRONica lit up the Hollywood Pictures Backlot area of the park in electrified shades of blue and green, with a combination of loud DJ-spun dance music, live dancers, unique shows, and kinetic video projections. The seemingly temporary setup found a cult following among teens and young adults who made frequent repeat visits to Tron City.

Anyone keep any of these?

A few highlights:

Video from opening night:

ElecTRONica ended April 15th, 2012. Mad Tea Party replaced it, beginning on June 15th, 2012.
Do you miss it?  Or prefer the Mad Tea Party? Why?

Thanks for reading and watching! Miss y'all! Hope you had a great day!

Still sad this is gone.  I was vaguely obsessed with Tron growing up, so Tron Legacy and ElecTronica were so darn fun!  Just walking past Flynn's arcade made me smile!  Thanks for a great post!  - cmogo  74.4 #4049 10:12PM
Me too! I always got goosebumps when I walked down the backlot! Such fun times! :) - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 10:50PM
I hope the rumors are true and they bring it back with the release of the new movie!!! I loved it! IMO much better thn the T party. The furniture was awesome, the music was better and the overall vibe was much cooler and dare I say chic lol. The arcade was definitely fun and I like how they brought it out into Hollywood area with the stages and the disc throwers. Thanks Duchess! And see u Sunday πŸ˜€ - missariel33  2115.5 #72 10:14PM

Never got to see laserman.  Saw ElecTRONica a few times tho...  Still one of my most favorite movies of all time..  My 4and6 year olds are Tron fanatics too.   Always pretending to play Disc Wars - Disneylanddad702  467.1 #464 11:26AM
That Was My Hang Out Area To Restwhile Everyone Was On The Rides. I Usedto Dj Before So It Was Nice Just To Enjoy The Music. Thanks Again Duchess For The Great info - gonzofam  303.5 #887 2:32PM
Mads and i always walked by it but never went, since i was under the impression it was adults only. Really bummed that we missed it, although I do enjoy the mad t party. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 2:34PM
