The Orange County Register has reported that Disney recently filed for another permit as part of their massive enhancement plan, Project Pixie Dust. Following the demolition and rebuilding of the Adventureland entrance arch, Disneyland is now planning an extensive replacement of the gates and marquee at the entry to Frontierland. Estimated at approximately $200,000, the project includes the replacement of the 15′ tall faux wooden gates and 16′ long marquee, in addition to the widening of the existing bridge at the Frontierland entrance.
The Frontierland entrance renovations are yet another part of Disney’s overall strategy to improve Guest traffic coming in and out of the different lands of the Park.
Although construction at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort has halted due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Disney continues to file permits for previously-planned work. Construction has not yet begun on the Frontierland entrance, and activity on other projects, such as the reimagining of Snow White’s Scary Adventure at Disneyland, has been stopped.
