Iconic Magic Kingdom Toll Plaza will be Painted in All-New Colors in Preparation for Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary

As we approach the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, a number of improvements and refurbishments are underway across property to prepare the resorts and theme parks for the golden anniversary celebration. While the icon of Magic Kingdom, Cinderella Castle, has already received a makeover, soon another icon of the park will be getting an all-new color scheme.

The first thing guests see when approaching the Magic Kingdom is the park’s iconic toll plaza. Starting Monday, the Magic Kingdom parking gate will undergo an 8-week long refurbishment and repainting project to give the entrance a whole new color scheme for the anniversary.

Imagineers were seen out earlier in the week analyzing the gate, comparing potential options using color boards for reference. Work is set to begin next week, with three lanes to be closed off at a time for the repainting process.

Many guests have been disappointed at the lack of the pumpkins that typically adorn the plaza around Halloween time, however it seems they were skipped this year for the upcoming improvements.

Are you looking forward to seeing a new look for the Magic Kingdom toll plaza? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Stop changing Everything!! By the time we all get to come back we won’t even recognize our home anymore 😭

  2. When DL hit 50, we had the “Happiest Celebration on Earth” and WDW got new attractions, jewels on the castle and so much more.

    New paint on the toll plaza? I’m hoping WDW’s 50th is going to be bigger deal than that.
