Many fans were in an uproar last week when they heard that ‘College Gameday‘, which is being filmed at the Magic Kingdom on August 24, would not allow signs into the park. Signs are a tradition for ‘College Gameday’ fans, as many claimed it just wouldn’t be the same without them. I am more than happy to announce that Disney is changing its policy on signs for one day only, and there are a few rules to follow. Here is the official press release from ESPN:
- Supporting the time-honored tradition of handheld signs during “College GameDay” broadcasts, we are making an exception for Guests to bring college football signs to Magic Kingdom Park on Aug. 24 only. Signs are only permitted in the broadcast viewing area until noon. After the broadcast, signs may be recycled in the park or returned to a vehicle or resort room.
- Signs must be handheld (no poles, sticks or extensions) and may not contain commercial, derogatory, vulgar or political content. Blank signs or dry erase boards will not be permitted. Signs may not exceed 3’ x 5’ in size. Guests bringing signs to the park will not be able to board the Epcot and Resort Monorail and will be screened at the Transportation and Ticket Center or the Magic Kingdom bus loop. Signs are subject to approval and may not be allowed.
- Valid theme park admission is required.
I am more than excited to let you know about this because ‘College Gameday’ just isn’t the same without the sea of signage. ‘College Gameday’ will be broadcasting live from the Magic Kingdom on August 24, 2019, and simultaneously airing on ESPN at 9:00 a.m. EST.
In case you missed it, here is the official announcement from Coach Lee Corso himself.
