it's a small world exterior refurbishment - November 2 2020
Posted: Monday November 9, 2020 9:11am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

'it's a small world' at the Magic Kingdom is currently behind scrims for an exterior refurbishment.

The entire facade of the building is behind the scrim, suggesting fairly extensive work. The ride remains open for business as normal during the work.

Costs too much money.

That has always been there, just given different colors throughout the years. It was blue in the 70s and 80s.

Not that I’d necessarily want it to happen, but since the Disney character treatment was rumored for WDW at one point, couldn’t they easily install some of them one by one? They’re not complicated figures, and they could just fabricate everything they made for Tokyo and send it over to MK. To me this seems like something they could do as a part of the 50th, without having to spend too much CapEx. It would also align well with the paint scheme enhancements taking place right now, and WDW’s IASW could use some love.

That area is frequently a bottleneck, so if that pink-striped gazebo is part of the redo, it won't help pedestrian flow.

Seems like it. I mean, WDI did file a permit for new graphic installation, so I’m assuming something new is coming.

I think that entrance is temporary now...
