Entrance to Magic Kingdom Set to be Overhauled Means Removal of ‘Disney’s Walk Around the World’ Bricks
Epcot isn’t the only park at Walt Disney World that will be receiving a makeover to its entrance. The entrance to the Magic Kingdom will also be receiving an updated look in the coming years. However, this overhaul means that the “Disney’s Walk Around the World” bricks will be removed.
The “Disney’s Walk Around the World” bricks are also set to be removed from the Transportation and Ticket Center.(TTC) When Disney World fans purchased these bricks, they were promised that the bricks would be on display until 2019. So, it sounds like the people participating in this program received more than their money’s worth!
How to Receive Your Commemorative Brick
The “Disney’s Walk Around the World” bricks were installed in a way that they cannot be removed separately. Since you won’t be able to go and pick up your exact brick that was on display, those who have bricks can purchase a commemorative version from now until August 31, 2019 or while supplies last.
There are two ways to purchase your souvenir brick:
If visiting in person:
- Guests can stop by City Hall inside the Magic Kingdom or at Guest Relations at Disney Springs. A Cast Member will verify your information.
- Once your sponsored brick is confirmed, you will be give a one-time use voucher to be used by August 31, 2019. The voucher will allow you to purchase one commemorative 6″ inch brick for $10 plus tax. The voucher can be redeemed at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. inside the Magic Kingdom or at the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs.
If needing to request brick virtually:
- Those who previously purchased a sponsored brick can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (407) 828-2701. You will need to verify your information by providing your name and hometown.
- Once your identity is confirmed, you will receive a unique code to purchase your commemorative 6″ inch brick through the shopDisney.com website. The bricks will be available this Spring and the code will need to be redeemed by August 31, 2019. The code will only allow you to purchase one brick.
