Commemorative Bricks Being Retired as Magic Kingdom Transforms at Walt Disney World Resort

Commemorative Bricks

As you enter into the Magic Kingdom, you may have noticed commemorative bricks lining the walkways. These were part of “Disney’s Walk Around the World”, giving guests a chance to leave their mark on the Disney property. Much like at Disneyland Park, these bricks were sold with the commitment that they would remain in their homes until 2011.

As Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom continues to transform, many things continue to change around the resort. This includes reconfiguring walkways, and tram loading and unloading zones and more. Disney is also enhancing security by adding more bag screening stations, metal detectors and other measures to aid in the screening of guests.

As part of this transformation, Disney has announced that the bricks from “Disney’s Walk Around the World” near Magic Kingdom Park and the Transportation and Ticket Center will begin to be retired in the coming months. Unfortunately, the commemorative bricks were not designed to be removed individually, so guests cannot take any home. Luckily, there is another option! Guests who sponsored a brick may purchase a commemorative version between now and Aug. 31, 2019, or while supplies last.

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).

Contact Disney virtually:

  • Email guest.services@disneyworld.com 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 didn’t participate in the original program, don’t worry! You can still get a brick of your own! If you would like to purchase a personalized brick, souvenir bricks are available to customize and purchase starting at $29.99 (plus tax and optional shipping). Head to Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom Park (separate theme park admission required to enter) or the Marketplace Co-Op (at Disney Springs) to purchase a brick of your own. Can’t make it to Walt Disney World? The bricks will be available on shopDisney.com later this Spring.
