PHOTOS: Work Begins On Disney World’s Osceola Parkway Welcome Gate!

Disney World is getting a few touch-ups and makeovers throughout the property!

Disney World Welcome Gate

The theme park is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! In honor of the grand birthday, Disney is sprucing up the place a bit. Cinderella Castle got a new paint job featuring rose gold and royal blue accents. The Magic Kingdom parking entrance matches the castle with the same color scheme. Up next, the famous Welcome Gate is getting a new look too!

It was announced earlier that the Disney World entrance sign will be getting a glow-up this year.  We’ve seen one archway begin the construction process. Now, the entrance sign located on Osceola Parkway construction has begun and we got some close-up shots on our way to the theme parks.

The right lane was closed as the workers put on a fresh coat of primer to the Disney World sign.

You can also see that Minnie was wrapped in plastic while the work is being done.

When the project is finished, the welcome gate will look like this concept art released by Disney!


We’re excited to see the finished product very soon. We’ll continue to make our way through the gate and check on the progress!

  1. I think they are wrong putting The Most Magical Place on Earth now, it was before but now with all the changes and getting rid of the Magical perks it will not be the same anymore
