PHOTOS: Work Begins on Magic Kingdom Toll Plaza Transformation 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.

Starting today, 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.

Three lanes have been closed off for the start of the repainting process. Imagineers were seen out last week analyzing the gate, comparing potential options using color boards for reference.

Have they also finished the roadwork leading into the park? I remember being at MK two years ago and there was a bunch of road construction at the time.

The inital phase of the project is done, there is a new flyover on the left side of the plaza to take you to the resorts with no more dangerous intersection along the way.

Still blows my mind. $25 effing dollars to park. Parking lot robbery.

It’s crazy. Im still waiting for the other shoe to drop and for APs to lose free parking.

I love the current toll plaza. Seems like they could spend the money better somewhere else.
