The “Walk Around the World” bricks are starting to be removed at the Magic Kingdom

Construction walls are up near the main entrance of the Magic Kingdom as Disney continues to remove the old “Walk Around the World” bricks. The bricks are being retired as Walt Disney World updates and reconfigures areas around the Magic Kingdom and the Transportation and Ticket Center.

So far, we’ve already seen a large section of the personalized stones removed near the Transportation and Ticket Center. Now, walls are up near the security screening area at the Magic Kingdom as work prepares to get underway.

The “Walk Around the World” stones have been a mainstay at these locations for years, but they were only expected to be displayed through 2011. Disney announced in March that they were retiring the bricks and removing them over the next several months.

Disney is currently making changes to the arrival areas at all four theme parks ahead of its 50th anniversary in 2021. That includes the removal of the “Leave a Legacy” monuments at Epcot, alterations to the tram drop-off locations at Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, and of course preparations for the Disney Skyliner.

Things will probably look a lot different the next time you enter a Walt Disney World theme park.
