Magic Kingdom Changes Park Policy for One Day – Will Allow Signs During College GameDay
As I happily reported last week, ESPN’s College GameDay would be filmed live from the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World this Saturday, August 24. The official start to the 2019 college football season kicks off in Orlando on Saturday in a game for the ages between the mighty Miami Hurricanes and the overrated Florida Gators at the nearby Camping World Stadium. Fans were excited about the popular ESPN show broadcasting from the Magic Kingdom until it was realized that a ticket for entrance would be required and fans would not be allowed to bring in signs touting their favorite football team.
While a ticket is still required to enter the Magic Kingdom for the filming of College GameDay, I am happy to announce that the Magic Kingdom has changed its policy for just this one day and will allow signs into the Park. Here is the official release from ESPN/Disney:
Signs permitted during College GameDay broadcast at Magic Kingdom Park on Aug. 24 only
- Supporting the time-honored tradition of handheld signs during “College GameDay” broadcasts, we are making an exception for Guests to bring college football signs to Magic Kingdom Park on Aug. 24 only. Signs are only permitted in the broadcast viewing area until noon. After the broadcast, signs may be recycled in the park or returned to a vehicle or resort room.
- Signs must be handheld (no poles, sticks or extensions) and may not contain commercial, derogatory, vulgar or political content. Blank signs or dry erase boards will not be permitted. Signs may not exceed 3’ x 5’ in size. Guests bringing signs to the park will not be able to board the Epcot and Resort Monorail and will be screened at the Transportation and Ticket Center or the Magic Kingdom bus loop. Signs are subject to approval and may not be allowed.
- Valid theme park admission is required.
