PHOTOS: Gold Flags Added as Sign Repainting Continues on Western Way Entrance to Walt Disney World
Some of the last tasks to be done on the Western Way entrance to Walt Disney World are well underway.
Golden flags are being installed above the entrance archway, which we witnessed on our way through. These represent Walt Disney World’s golden fiftieth anniversary, which the resort will celebrate next year.
Traffic has been reduced to one way to accommodate the scissor lift, which construction workers were on, while Mickey and Minnie Mouse look on on their royal blue and gold background, which matches the scheme on Cinderella Castle and the Magic Kingdom toll plaza.
Meanwhile, since our last visit, the “Walt Disney World” signage on the arch has been repainted white to match the sign on the right.
All that seems left to do is install the remaining flags and paint them, as well as install “The Most Magical Place on Earth” sign that will go beneath the arch.
Below is concept art of approximately what all of the final entrance archways will look like.
Of the five Walt Disney World entrances, work so far has only begun on Western Way and Hotel Plaza Boulevard, which does not have an archway.
