Walt Disney World is continuing the improvement of the Transportation and Tickets Center by adding more security lines, metal detectors as well as reconfiguring walkways, and tram loading and unloading zones. Unfortunately this does come at a cost. The iconic ‘Disney Walk Around the World’ bricks located near the TTC will be removed.
What are the ‘Disney Walk Around the World’ bricks? If you are not familiar, these are the personalized commemorative bricks that are located around the Magic Kingdom entrance as well as the other locations near the theme park. These bricks were originally sold from Summer 2000 to when they sold out a few years later. Along with the purchase came the guarantee that they would be displayed till at least 2011. The time has come where they need to be removed. Unfortunately due to the nature of the construction they cannot be saved and will be destroyed. Disney has come up with a way for you to save your memory and have a new souvenir brick created for your own home.
Beginning today guests who previously purchased a brick may buy a commemorative version between now and Aug. 31, 2019, or while supplies last. These bricks will come at a discounted rate of just $10 (plus tax).
If you purchased a brick in the early 2000’s and would like to get a souvenir version, here’s what to do:
If visiting in person:
- Stop by City Hall at Magic Kingdom Park or Guest Relations at Disney Springs to verify your previous brick by sharing the name and hometown of the Guest who sponsored it.
- After verification, you 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).
If you will not be visiting Walt Disney World during this time you can follow these directions:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 407-828-2701 with the name and hometown of the guest who sponsored the brick.
- After verification, you will be provided a code to use by, or before Aug. 31, 2019, on shopDisney.com to purchase one commemorative 6” brick at a special price of $10 (plus tax and shipping) starting this spring. Please note, this code is for one-time use and will only be valid on shopDisney.com and may not be redeemed in person or at any other location. (Limit one voucher or code per verified guest.)
If you did not previously own a ‘Disney’s Walk Around the World’ brick you can purchase one of the personalized commemorative bricks starting at $29.99 (plus tax and optional shipping). These are on sale now at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom Park or the Marketplace Co-Op (at Disney Springs), or later on shopDisney.com starting this spring.
