The gateway is known for having multicolored flags and giant cutouts of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, with a blue banner below reading, “Where Dreams Come True.”

Disney offered a computer rendering of what the update will look like, which involves a revamp of the color scheme to blue, gold and gray. The classic cutouts of Mickey and Minnie will remain on either side of the entrance (although they switch sides) with rainbow-colored flags on top.
The banner’s message will be replaced with, “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”
WATCH: Students combat widespread issue plaguing online schooling:
Disney fans — who have a lot of strong opinions — expressed concern on Twitter following the announcement that the changes will ruin the magic and nostalgia of entering Disney World.
“Boring and lacks magic,” one person replied.
“Horrible! Why change a good thing?” another added.
The backlash should come as no surprise for Disney, considering the response to Cinderella Castle makeover in July 2020.
