With the brand new changes coming to the guest entrance areas of Magic Kingdom and the Ticket and Transportation Center, Disney has announced that the Walk Around the World bricks will start being removed soon. These hexagonal bricks were once available for purchase, and so many Disney fans in general jumped on the opportunity to have their names etched as a piece of history at the park. These treasured bricks felt like owning a piece of Disney property that you could come and visit. Each brick serving as a milestone marker of your family growing, a commemorative moment, or person who was no longer with us to reminisce on. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched guests look for their name, or their family brick, or the brick of a loved one and the joy in their faces to finally find it.
If you currently have a brick at Disney, we have learned that starting today until August 31, 2019 you will be able to get a commemorative version to take home with you. To get yours, either visit the City Hall at Magic Kingdom Park or Guest Relations at Disney Springs to verify your previous brick using the name and hometown of the Guest who sponsored it. You will then be given a one time voucher to have a commemorative brick printed, and you can pick it up from Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom Park or the Marketplace Co-Op. The price for individuals who purchased a brick when they were originally available is $10 plus tax.
If you can’t come to the park in person, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 407-828-2701 with the name and hometown of the Guest who sponsored the brick. You also have until August 31, 2019 to claim your brick for the price of $10 plus tax, and shipping/handling to have it mailed to you. Additional instructions on how to receive your commemorative brick will be provided by guest relations.
The good news is, if you never got a brick, but have always wanted one, Disney is now giving you the opportunity to own your own and take it home.
We spotted a kiosk available at the Marketplace Co-Op today that allows you to have your brick printed on the spot, much like the personalized D-Tech phone cases. In fact, that’s right where you can find the touch screen kiosk to order your brick.
You have two size options to choose from – a 6” brick for $29.99 plus tax , or an 8” brick for $49.99 plus tax. Soon there will be an ornament option available for $24.99 plus tax, and you will also be able to order a brick on-line through Shopdisney.com, all with customization included.
These bricks are available at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom Park or the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs, right where the D-Tech location is. Check out the process in photos below:
It does make me sad to see these bricks go, but I’m glad Disney is giving those who originally had one the opportunity to have a commemorative version made. You still have a piece of Disney magic to cherish forever.
