Magic Kingdom auto-plaza refurbishment - October 12 2020

The Magic Kingdom's auto-plaza is currently in the middle of a much-needed refurbishment, bringing a familiar color palette to the first arrival point for guests visiting the Magic Kingdom.

Work is starting from the left-side of the plaza, and brings in the deep blue and gold that we have seen at the new-look Cinderella Castle.

The majority of the lanes remains open to cars, but expect a couple to be closed for work over the next couple of weeks.

It should say “Vacation Kingdom of the World”.

With the redesign of the entrances, leave it to another WDW blog (not that one that shall not be named but another one) to ask, "Is Walt Disney World no longer the place that dreams come true?" (The slogan "Where dreams come true" is being replaced with "The Most Magical Place on Earth"). Talk about a gag-filled clickbait headline.

I wonder if they are going to repaint all the CONSTRUCTION WALLS IN EPCOT to match too :(

This is so important as there is no other work to be done in the parks especially in EPCOT :(

I agree. This new toll booth looks pretty good, which makes sense considering the biggest complaint about the castle paint job is how much it flattened everything. Maybe that was the second complaint. The biggest is that it’s straight-up ugly. ;)

I like it! The deeper blue, iridescent castle and "welcome" letter bases look elegant.

I'm of the same opinions. This repaint is fabulous...the castle in MK is terrible.

Even though I wasn't a fan of the actual castle repaint, I think this sign repaint is a big improvement.
