Buy Your Own Walk Around the World Paving Stone

Share This!

Back in March, Disney announced that they will be digging up the commemorative paving stones that have lined the walkways around the Magic Kingdom since the mid-1990s. You know the ones–those brownish-pink pavers you’d see on your walk from the Magic Kingdom bus stop to the park. One of my favorite WDW pastimes has been reading the pavers and trying to imagine the lives of those people commemorated on the stones.

Now that the pavers are being removed, Disney is giving guests an opportunity to purchase a replica of the stone they purchased a few decades ago, or to create a new paver for their own home. You can order at paver at the Tomorrowland Light and Power Company at the Magic Kingdom or at the Marketplace Co-op at Disney Springs. If you can’t get to WDW, you can also now buy a paver on ShopDisney.com.

They’re available in three sizes: 6-inch pavers for $29.99, 8-inch pavers for $49.99, and a holiday ornament with a loop for hanging for $24.99.

Do you have paver? What meaning does it have for your family? Do you want to purchase a replica paver, or create a new one, to display at your home? Let us know in the comments below.

    You have to applaud the sheer audacity of selling the stones back to the people who they sold them to on the idea that they’d have a permanent* mark in the park

    *”permanent” is subject to revision by Disney Parks management at any time.

    Ours are at Disneyland, but our contract states they would only maintain it for 10 years. It was never permanent. We’ve gotten 14 and 11 years out of them so far. We also had the option to buy a nicer mock brick when we had it installed, which are displayed in our house.

    Wow, Disney marketing surely must be laughing at this one … they know folks who plunked down money the first time around will surely purchase the replica. Disney didn’t just get ya once folks! Your money “magically” disappears at the happiest place on earth.

    Any idea if these replicas are also stone, or are they resin?

      The details on the shopDisney site say they are made of “clay” and intended for indoor use.

    One of our favorite traditions has been to visit our stone when we went to the park. Even though we knew it was never permanent, it’s sad to see it go. Our stone was down the path. I think the only people that walked there were people looking for their stones. Unfortunately, one more reason that makes disney a less appealing option for my family.

    Forget Disney. Ruining every tradition they where built on. Whatever I’m fed up with them. Seeing the brick was one of the most looked forward thing to do. Not the same feeling. Good luck Disney. Your brain trust couldn’t figure out the nostalgia that the past generations have carried over that are now being lost. The idea was to keep wholesome and traditional. Good luck with the next generation and trying to keep up. The tradition is what was special!!!!!
