Latest Progress on Disney World Entrance Archway Reimagining for 50th Anniversary

We head out to the Western Way entrance to Walt Disney World and a color temperature that we’re going to call “morning glow” to take a look at the 50th Anniversary update. First, here’s a look at the concept art for the gateway reimagining project.

As you can see in the photos below, crews are making pretty good progress on the repainting project and may even finish with this archway by early December.

Below is two versions of the same image, but white-balanced differently. The first one assumes the “morning glow” that we experienced, while the second image attempts to remove it.

We’ll stick with the “morning glow” for the rest of the images. Mickey appears to have received his final look, while Minnie is still in the reimagining stages.

Across the median, Donald is also getting a new coat of paint.

Focusing a bit more on the Walt Disney World marquee, we can see that the gradient application seems to be complete on either side as we await the arrival of the new “The Most Magical Place on Earth” tagline to be installed.
