Guest Bricks in Disney’s Magic Kingdom to Be Removed Soon

Walt Disney World continues to prepare for its 50th Anniversary coming up in 2021 and while we’ve already seen upcoming projects for the entrances to Epcot and Animal Kingdom scheduled, Disney’s Magic Kingdom is next on the list by removing the personalized Walk Around the World bricks that currently greet guests at the entrance.

The Walk Around the World bricks are going to be removed in phases both from Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Ticket and Transportation Center.

The reason for taking the bricks out is that the entrance to the Magic Kingdom is getting upgraded, including new security check-ins and that will occupy some of the real estate the bricks are currently on.  The contracts on the original bricks were set to expire in 2011, so we’re already 8 years past the date.

At this point you’re probably wondering: “What is going to happen to MY Walk Around the World Brick and can I get it back?” The short answer is no. Unfortunately the way they were originally installed doesn’t allow for guests to be able to take their brick home.

While this is disappointing for any guests that have purchased one of these bricks that they will be taken out, the positive side is that Disney is offering replica bricks that you can buy and take home to remember forever.

There are two options for guests, those visiting the Magic Kingdom in person can pick up their brick in the park, or you can order it online and have it sent to you.

Guests Visiting the Park:

  • Starting March 18, Guests can stop by City Hall at Magic Kingdom Park or Guest Relations at Disney Springs to verify their previous brick by sharing the name and hometown of the Guest who sponsored it.
  • After verification, they will be given a one-time use voucher to present by, or before Aug. 31, 2019, at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. (at Magic Kingdom Park – separate theme park admission required) or the Marketplace Co-Op (at Disney Springs), enabling you to purchase one commemorative 6” brick at a special price of $10 (plus tax).

I understand completely the problem with returning the bricks. I bought ours in 1995 and knew then that I NEVER owned it. I sponsored it. Not the same thing for sure. . Most of the people I see upset were not the original sponsors. I’m just glad I can get a copy. ?

Thanks for the comment Beth! Yeah that's a good way to look at it, they never were really owned by the families, but by Disney so they can do whatever they like with them. At least there is a way to get a replica to take home!

My brother & myself have 2 bricks we always this would come that they would be removed.but when we first got them we knew they where only to last 10years they have been down 25years & 20years & we knew we would never be able to get the brick once removed that was part of the deal.

Hi Michelle, thanks for commenting! That's a good way to look at it too. A lot of people don't really understand the original deal and families have definitely got value for their investment as they've been there much longer than originally planned!

When does Disney’s greed for profit end?????

Hi Lucia, thanks for the comment. That's a whole other topic my friend but I don't see this one as being so bad. People are upset the bricks are going away and want to remember them. Maybe Disney could offer them a free replica, I just don't see that as realistic

I’m really upset. It was so special to go find our brick each time we were at Disney. As my kids got married and had children it was a special time to show our grandchildren the stone with our name on it. And I guess I thought it would be special for them to show others their brick.

Thanks for the comment Maryanne! Yes I can understand it must be difficult for you, they were a great memory for many families and it's a shame they are taking them up. Are you going to get a replica one?
