    Rusty Castles gone!:)

    This news is at least a few days old, as the is when I first noticed it. The "Where Dreams Come True" Castles, on the WDW arches as you enter property have been removed! Are they being cleaned? Will something new (Nighttastic???) replace them? Regardless, they were getting rusty so I am glad they were finally removed. I would have been ok with cleaning them, but removal is fine too. They have become a case of their removal is considered (at least by me) an incline by a degree

    I am sure they will be replaced soon with another (probably Volunteering) theme.

    I'm not sure volunteering will make it to summer, let alone December.

    Does anyone have a pic? I don't really know what this looks like?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Rusty Castles gone!:)

    Does ANYONE have photos of the Magic Kingdom Toll Plaza entry, circa 1970s/1980s?

    Anyone? Bueler? Bueler?


    UPDATE: I've found ONLY ONE picture, circa 1972. Behold how I remember those good old days.....

    no, not banners. These were giant 3 deminsonal, light up signs over the road ways centered on the archs what welcome you onto Disney Property as you drive unto the WDW complex. At least the ones on Oseola Parkway and Epcot Center Drive Entrances are removed. from the Giant Arches that extend out and over the roadways.

    One of these days I will have to learn how to attached a picture They are worth 1K words.

    They blocked traffic last night (closed it to one lane) so that they can do something to these signs. I'll check and see if they did anything today.

    Nice shot! yes exactly. The castle was rust stained so badly you could even see the discoloration as you drove under it at 50 MPH. Anyway, yes, the cloud and castle top piece have been removed. didn't notice anything new today.

    I was leaving the Magic Kingdom tonight and noticed that they had a construction spotlight shining up in front of the arches. The three flags on the right (as your entering) were missing.
