The sign to the side of him was painted royal blue with white lettering. Donald is no longer wrapped in plastic, which indicates work is complete on this side of the entrance, though construction equipment remains.
Lanes will close one at a time as work begins on the center archway, where in addition to the new paint, the “Where Dreams Come True” banner will be replaced with one that reads “The Most Magical Place On Earth.” The colorful flags will also be replaced with gold ones and the image of Cinderella Castle removed.
The Western Way, Hotel Plaza Boulevard, and Osceola Parkway entrances have already received their 50th anniversary refurbishments. World Drive and World Center Drive are all that remain, and will likely be complete within the next several weeks. Keep checking WDWNT for updates.
