PHOTOS: Animation Courtyard Arch Receives New Paint In Preparation for New Park Logo Sign at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Today, the Studio Arch that leads into the Animation Courtyard of Disney’s Hollywood Studios received an all-new paint job. The iconic arch now sports dark blue and cream-colored accents over what used to be tan and beige coloring.

We sense a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in anguish for Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The new paint job comes ahead of the arch’s upcoming redesign. Concept art for the new archway was revealed alongside the park’s new logo as part of the 30th anniversary celebration earlier this year in May. The arch is also set to receive the new logo in the coming months (or potentially sooner.)

The smaller arches flanking the sides remain unchanged so far, but according to the concept art, the upper frames should also be receiving the same dark blue color to match the main central arch.

Here’s a closer look at the new paint, with the teal tiles still in place from before.

The new color scheme continues on the back as well.

For reference, here’s what the archway used to look like prior to the new paint scheme.

What do you think of the new look for the Animation Courtyard arch? Are you looking forward to the upcoming logo changes?
