ORLANDO, Fla. — The arches that span the roadways leading into Walt Disney World are getting new looks, the resort has announced.

The structures, flanked by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse characters, are primarily yellow and red now. The new look will lean on a rich blue, gray and golden scheme meant to echo the recent paint job at Magic Kingdom’s Cinderella Castle, according to a post Monday on the official Disney Parks Blog.

A rendering provided by Disney suggests that the wording will change from “Where Dreams Come True” to “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” The concept also seems to lose the castle-in-the-clouds centerpiece atop the arch.

All the entrances of this style will get a makeover, including the one where Hotel Plaza Boulevard ends at State Road 535.

Work has begun on the new color scheme, which also appears at the Magic Kingdom auto plaza booths. The project will be completed in phases.
