Disney Gossip: Frontierland Shootin Arcade to Close for New DVC Lounge

The Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is poised to close permanently this summer. The closure will make way for a new Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Member Lounge according to WDW Magic.

While Disney hasn’t officially confirmed the closure or replacement details, the move aligns with a January announcement about a new DVC lounge opening at Walt Disney World in 2024. Disney described the lounge as “a great place for members to relax and recharge during their day of fun!”


This isn’t the first time the arcade’s closure has been rumored. In 2021, operating hours were removed and the arcade switched to free play, but it ultimately remained open. This time, sources indicate the closure is imminent, pending Disney’s official statement.

Frontierland Changes Ahead

The potential DVC lounge is part of a larger wave of changes coming to Frontierland. This includes the opening of the Country Bears Musical Jamboree this summer and a likely retheme of Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, possibly tying into the nearby Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

Disney recently hinted at further developments in a blog post, stating, “Hold your horses, we’re not done yet. We have a lot of growth and investment planned for our theme parks in the coming years and look forward to sharing more announcements about Frontierland … so y’all come back now, ya hear?”
