Disney World entrance signs getting makeover to match castle
ORLANDO, Fla. - Walt Disney World says look for some fresh pixie dust at the roadway entrance.
The company says it is giving the archways a makeover and they will shimmer in a new color.
The refreshed look will complement the royal colors of Cinderella's Castle at the Magic Kingdom.
"These refreshed gateways will continue to set the tone for all the stories you’ll tell and the memories you’ll cherish long after your visit," according to Disney Parks Blog. "They’re also part of the broad tapestry of new experiences happening across Walt Disney World as part of the resort’s historic transformation that includes expansive themed lands like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, new attractions like Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, and new places to stay like Disney’s Riviera Resort."

One parkgoer posted photos to the Annual Passholders group on Facebook as crews were hard at work painting the entrance sign at the Magic Kingdom Park Auto Plaza.
"This is happening right now. Painting it to match the castle."
Many viewers weighed in on social media. Some love the new look -- while others don't.
"I love the new colors! What an awesome upgrade!" wrote one commenter.
