If you've been to Disney World at any point in the last 5 to 10 years, you've no doubt seen construction walls, cranes and more on your vacation. Disney has been aggressively expanded Walt Disney World with new attractions, hotels and more. But it's the in between parts that also need the same treatment. Disney's Hollywood Studios has seen the introduction of a whole new bus loop, entrance roadway and of course the Disney Skyliner. Epcot will soon get a big infrastructure makeover at the park's entrance. And it seems Magic Kingdom and the Ticket and Transportation Center will also get a little tender love and care.
As work continues to transform the arrival experience, the bricks from “Disney’s Walk Around the World” near Magic Kingdom Park and the Transportation and Ticket Center will begin to be retired in the coming months. These bricks were sold with the commitment that they would be displayed until 2011. Since the bricks were not designed to be removed individually, they will not be available to take home. Instead, guests who sponsored a brick may purchase a commemorative version between now and Aug. 31, 2019, or while supplies last.
If you sponsored a brick and would like to get a souvenir version, here’s what to do:
If visiting in person:
Stop by City Hall at Magic Kingdom Park or Guest Relations at Disney Springs to verify your previous brick by sharing the name and hometown of the Guest who sponsored it.
After verification, you will be given a one-time use voucher to present by, or before Aug. 31, 2019, at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. (at Magic Kingdom Park – separate theme park admission required) or the Marketplace Co-Op (at Disney Springs), enabling you to purchase one commemorative 6” brick at a special price of $10 (plus tax).
If needing to contact Disney virtually:
Email email@example.com or call 407-828-2701 with the name and hometown of the guest who sponsored the brick.
After verification, you will be provided a code to use by, or before Aug. 31, 2019, on shopDisney.com to purchase one commemorative 6” brick at a special price of $10 (plus tax and shipping) starting this spring. Please note, this code is for one-time use and will only be valid on shopDisney.com and may not be redeemed in person or at any other location. (Limit one voucher or code per verified guest.)
For Guests who did not participate in the original “Disney’s Walk Around the World” program but would like to purchase a personalized brick, souvenir bricks are available to customize and purchase starting at $29.99 (plus tax and optional shipping). These are on sale now at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom Park (separate theme park admission required to enter) or the Marketplace Co-Op (at Disney Springs), or later on shopDisney.com starting this spring.
