PHOTOS: World Drive Entrance Painting Completed for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary
“The World’s Most Magical Celebration” is just around the corner at Walt Disney World, and that is clear as soon as you arrive on property at Walt Disney World Resort. The World Drive entrance originally featured red lettering against a gold background and red pillars but has slowly been moving to a new color scheme over the course of this month. Now at completion, this entrance features white lettering against a blue background with gray pillars, somewhat mimicking the original color scheme of Cinderella Castle. Take a look down below:
One big change we see today is the addition of the new marquee. The marquee formerly read “Where Dreams Come True” today the gold banner reads “The Most Magical Place On Earth”.
The “Walt” in “Walt Disney World” was the last bit to be repainted white.
This new blue/gold/gray color scheme now welcomes guests to Walt Disney World Resort and “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” in honor of the 50th anniversary of the resort.
Our favorite characters also received a few touchups. Up until a few days ago Minnie Mouse remained shrouded in plastic. Today her polka dots are on full display.
Donald Duck and Goofy’s marquees were the first to receive touch ups.
The new World Drive entrance remains as bright and welcoming as ever, even from behind.
