Everyone knows and loves the iconic Walt Disney World sign when heading into the Magic Kingdom toll plaza. Driving under the words “Walt Disney World: Where Dreams Come True,” with Mickey on one side and Minnie on the other. Chills, excitement, tears — there is no other feeling like it.
Driving under the Magic Kingdom sign at the entrance to the first Walt Disney World theme park gives us that same exciting feeling, although now it looks like that sign could be changing.
Spectrum News reports that according to recent permits, Walt Disney World will be adding a new variable message to the sign at the Magic Kingdom toll plaza. The Magic Kingdom toll plaza is the area which vehicles and Disney buses drive through to either pay for parking and park at the Transportation and Ticket Center or to get to the front entrance of the Magic Kingdom.
The recent documents filed with Orange County state:
- Disney to add variable message sign, according to permit
- Sign will be installed at Magic Kingdom Toll Plaza
- No other details released
If you aren’t sure what variable message signs are, they typically consist of electronic traffic signs that are used to give drivers updated information. Disney could use this in a variety of ways. From letting guests know the current park house to informing drivers of special event hours (such as on nights that hold Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party) and other information.
As of right now, it is unclear exactly where or when the sign will be installed, but we can expect a change at some point in the future. Also, note that the permit states that a sign will be added but does not mention that the current sign will be removed. At this time, it is also unclear exactly when or where the new sign will be added, but we will share an update as more information is revealed.
