PHOTOS: All Bronze Character Statues Removed From Hub at Magic Kingdom

Yesterday, Br’er Rabbit’s bronze statue was removed from the hub of Magic Kingdom. Though we thought this was just part of the continued effort to remove references to Splash Mountain and Song of the South from Disney Parks, it turns out all of the bronze statues were being removed.

The statues and their pedestals are now all gone.

The dirt where the statues used to be has already been smoothed out.

Whether or not these bronze statues will ever return is unknown, but they are likely being replaced with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection of gold statues for the park’s 50th anniversary.

In this artist rendering Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are featured as special golden character sculptures in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. They will be joined by 50 characters as part of the “Disney Fab 50,” a new collection of golden sculptures debuting Oct. 1, 2021, across all four Walt Disney World theme parks as part of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” honoring the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort.

They are approximately where bronze statues used to be, on brand-new 50th anniversary bedestals.

  1. Wonder if WDWNT will retract their original story about this being “woke” actions of Disney will be retracted? Or if everyone who commented on previous story criticizing “woke” Disney will apologize? lol of course they wont

    1. That statue isn’t coming back, but we suspect the others will. Also, they removed just Brer Rabbit the other day, then the other 7 in the same length of time. A message is likely being sent here.
