Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade Will Permanently Close in Disney World

by | Jun 13, 2024 | Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Disney has officially confirmed that the Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade will permanently close in Magic Kingdom later this month. In its place, a new DVC Member lounge will become available.

Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade was an opening day attraction for Magic Kingdom. Located in Frontierland, the Old West-themed activity featured infrared rifles that could be aimed at targets. But it’s now being reported that the location will be permanently shuttering later this month, with plans to be replaced by a DVC lounge.

Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade Closing Date

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the final day of operation for the Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade will be on June 23. Set in a rustic log cabin setting, the attraction allowed you to use a replica 0.54-caliber Hawkins buffalo rifle and shoot at targets with infrared technology. The attraction is currently still avialable at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris, and Tokyo Disneyland. It was an opening day attraction at MAgic Kingdom on October 1, 1971, so will be marking its closure after more than a 52 year run.

As for what will be coming to the area instead, it has been announced that a Disney Vacation Club lounge will take over the space, situated between Diamond Horseshoe and the forthcoming reimagining of Country Bear Musical Jamboree. According to a news release from DVC, the lounge will feature décor “inspired by the bygone ear of exploration and adventure.” Currently, no opening date has been announced for the lounge, which will be the first available in Magic Kingdom. Currently, other DVC lounges are available in the Imagination Pavilion in EPCOT, and at the top of Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

We’ll continue to keep you updated with the latest news, including an opening date for the upcoming DVC lounge that will be making its ways to Magic Kingdom.
