There are so many exciting changes coming to Walt Disney World Resort, including updates to the entrance walkways, tram loading/unloading, bus loops and more. There will also be additional bag screening stations, metal detectors, etc. added to help screen and ensure guests safety in a faster, more efficient manner. Due to this work, this means that the bricks from “Disney’s Walk Around the World” located near Magic Kingdom Park and the Transportation and Ticket Center will need to be retired. The bricks were sold with a commitment that they would be displayed until 2011. Because the bricks were not designed to be able to be removed individually, guests who sponsored a brick will have an opportunity to purchase a commemorative version between now and August 31st, 2019, or as long as supplies last.
Per Disney Parks Blog, 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 Augugst 31st, 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).
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Who out there had one of the bricks in the original “Disney’s Walk Around the World” walkway?
