Walk Around the World Bricks to be removed around the Magic Kingdom and TTC.
The hexagonal Walk Around the World Bricks at the entrance to the Magic Kingdom and Transportation and Ticket Center will soon be retired and removed.
These personalized bricks were sold in the 1990’s and were originally committed to be on display until 2011. The Walt Around the World program allowed guests to leave a message etched into a sponsored brick which was then laid in the walkway.
Guests who purchased a brick will be able to buy a souvenir version through to August 31 2019. To do so, you need to contact guest relations at the Magic Kingdom or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 407-828-2701 with the name and hometown of the guest who purchased the brick. A voucher will then be issued to buy a 6″ commemorative brick for $10. The original brick will not be available for purchase.
The removal of the bricks comes at a time when Disney is reworking the arrival experiences at all four theme parks to improve the guest experience with security check points and tram stations.
