Disney is planning a $200,000 renovation of the Frontierland entrance gate in Disneyland park. Here are the details we know so far.
- A new report by the OC Register states that Disney plans to replace the Frontierland bridge entrance gates and widen the bridge.
- The permit calls for the replacement of a pair of 15-foot-tall faux wooden gates and a 16-foot-long marquee along with the widening of an existing bridge at the Frontierland entrance.
- The renovation is meant to improve the flow of guests in and out of the land.
- These renovations will not begin until the park reopens, although an exact reopening date for Disneyland Resort has not yet been announced.
- This information was obtained via public records filed with the City of Anaheim, where Disneyland Resort is located.
- Disney completed a similar renovation of the Adventureland entrance at Disneyland park last year just before Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened.
Disneyland Construction Halted
We reported last month that Disney has decided to halt all construction projects at Disneyland Resort until further notice as the parks continue to stay closed for the time being. This meant that construction on the all-new Marvel-themed land — Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure — had to be halted, though Disney has not yet said if this will impact the grand opening date.
Other Permits Recently Filed
This permit for the Frontierland entrance renovation is only one of the many permits that Disney Parks and Resorts have filed recently.
We shared this past week that more permits were filed for Reflections – A Lakeside Disney Lodge (one of which may suggest the plans for the Princess and the Frog restaurant coming to Disney World). Other permits concerned the construction of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster coming to EPCOT. And another permit suggests that Disney plans to possibly extend the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival, which was cut short due to park closures.
This is a developing story and we will update Inside the Magic as more information becomes available.
