Tarps have been removed from over the decorative Monorails on the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT Monorail archway signs at the Transportation and Ticket Center, revealing their updated paint. The tarps covered the signs for a few weeks.
Old Color Schemes of Monorail Archways
Ahead of the 50th anniversary in 2021, the Transportation and Ticket Center was given an all-new color scheme of EARidescent blue and gold. This included repainting the entrance archways to the Monorail and ferryboat stations, which were previously purple and teal.
The archways became royal blue with “Monorail” in white lettering. The park names were in royal blue lettering against golden signs.
As seen in these photos from January 2023, the flat Monorails on top of the archways still had a coral stripe across them.
Magic Kingdom Monorail Archway
After this latest updated, the decorative Monorails have been repainted to reflect the latest Walt Disney World Monorail refurbishments.
The Monorails have blue stripes with black deltas beneath the central windows.
EPCOT Monorail Archway
Transportation and Ticket Center
The Transportation and Ticket Center acts as a gateway to Magic Kingdom, and can also transport guests to EPCOT. It’s where all guests with cars must park before getting on a Monorail or ferryboat to reach Magic Kingdom.
In addition to repainting archways, Disney removed the gates featuring characters, opening up the space of the Transportation and Ticket Center.
The TTC’s new color scheme matched the 50th anniversary decorations, as well as the updated Walt Disney World entrances and Magic Kingdom toll plaza. Blue and yellow road signs are also replacing the resort’s outdated purple road signs.
