Niiiiiiiiice! The blue background for Mickey looks goooooood! I didn’t realize how dated the old version looked until they updated it.

I just really wish they were going back to the original WDW font/logo. But it looks nice.

Honestly I actually enjoy this refreshed look. The 1990s VHS colors had become dated looking. I love the iconic signage and the new paint gives it a fresh lease on life.

This looks pretty nice! I like it better than the Barbie pink version from a few years ago; at least one of the new paint schemes turned out okay. ;)

I do enjoy some parts of that era, and I'm glad part of it is making a comeback in terms of design and style, but I think for the overall entrance to the entire resort it's too much. I know it's just capitalizing on the trend, but some of the merch they sell at Disney Style has that vibe, like PI shirts and dad caps. Plus the return of the "Peace, Love, Mickey" logo.

How I miss it, so.

Glad it's getting a facelift. The old look screamed Downtown Disney, Eisner-era 90's Disney to me.

Looks like the whole thing could use repaving, actually. Some noticeable cracks and it looks like relatively old asphalt. Probably should have done it while everything was closed for the pandemic.
