PHOTOS: World Drive Entrance Makeover Almost Complete for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary

The makeover of the World Drive entrance to Walt Disney World is almost complete. The Goofy, Donald, and Mickey marquees were repainted in the past several weeks, and now work is wrapping up on Minnie’s marquee.


Minnie’s background is now blue and the columns are grey.


She remains wrapped in plastic as some of the marquee’s accents have yet to be completed with a layer of shiny gold.


Meanwhile, most of the lettering on the archway has been painted white. Only “Walt” remains red with a white outline.


The rose gold flags and new banner will be installed once painting is finished.


On the back of the archway, we can see that blue painting is complete.


Some parts of the columns framing Minnie’s marquee still need to be painted grey.

The only other Walt Disney World entrance still in need of a makeover is on World Center Drive. We expect to see work begin there soon.
