In March, as the refurbishments on Main Street, U.S.A., were underway at Disneyland park, we took you behind the scenes in the Disneyland Arcade Shop for a look inside – literally, inside – the Welte Orchestrion. This impressive instrument has called the Main Street Penny Arcade home for decades. As you may recall from the original post, Disneyland Electromechanical team members Dave Allan, Ken Knibb, Joel Viado and Jeff Garcia were working to restore the Welte as close as possible to its original condition and counting down the days to its return to the Penny Arcade upon the location’s April reopening.
Well, I’m happy to report that the Welte Orchestrion is back in its place in the Main Street Penny Arcade, entertaining Disneyland park guests once again with its classic tunes. Take a look in this video from my fellow Disney Parks Blog author, Shannon Swanson!
