Yesterday we broke news about the “Walk Around the World” bricks. These hexagonal bricks near the Magic Kingdom Park and the Transportation and Ticket Center will be retired soon. The bricks which were part of “Disney’s Walk Around the World” were committed to be on display until 2011. The arrival experience near these areas will begin to be transformed in the coming months. This will require the bricks to be removed.
Since the hexagonal bricks were not designed to be individually removed, they will not be available to take home. Guests who sponsored a brick may purchase a commemorative version between now and August 31, 2019, while supplies last.
Those that wish to purchase a souvenir version have two options:
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).
If Guests cannot visit in person, they should:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org 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 a Guest had previously missed the opportunity to participate in the original “Disney’s Walk Around the World” program but would like to participate now, souvenir bricks are available to customize and purchase starting at $29.99 (plus tax and optional shipping). These are on sale now at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom Park (separate theme park admission required to enter) or the Marketplace Co-Op (at Disney Springs), or later on shopDisney.com starting this spring.

There are only 3 steps required to design the commemorative brick.
First, guests must choose 1 of 6 different art styles for the top of the brick. Choices are shown below and include Mickey Mouse and 2019 among others. The bottom 3 designs are exclusive for Walk Around the World participants, Annual Passholder, and DVC members, respectively.
Next, guests can personalize their commemorative brick with names or an occasion. Finally, a date is added at the bottom of the brick.
What do you think of the commemorative brick? Let us know in the comments!
