Walk Around the World bricks
Have you ever noticed these bricks as you are entering Magic Kingdom? Find Walk Around the World bricks among the pathways to the Contemporary & Ticket and Transportation Center at the Entrance of Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The program officially ended in the year 2000, with sporadic bricks sold since then (2006- 2007). Disney guaranteed guests hexagon brick to remain for 10 years after purchase. Today, some still stand at 20 years older or more. Including, my families above (picture taken, 2016), which was purchased in 1995.
Now that the 10-year guarantee is up, Disney will not repair worn down or broken ones. Instead, replacing broken ones with blank bricks. If your brick is off to the side, away from a main walking path or just lucky you may still be able to find it today! The future of these are unknown.
Unfortunately no kiosk or map is available for locating a Walk Around the World brick. However, if you can find an old photograph first letter & numbers are a guide. First look at the first letter represented to know which path to look at: (C)ontemporary, (E)ast and (W)est. The next 2 numbers will give a reference to general area by following surrounding bricks (keep in mind they will not be in order as bricks are removed and replaced).
Leave A Legacy
At Epcot a similar program named Leave A Legacy began in 1999 and ended in June/2007. More than 550,000 tiles were bought by guests and are still on display today. Unlike the Walk Around the World brick, the Leave A Legacy in Epcot still has a kiosk to find your tile. Go to the Legacy Locator Station inside the Camera Center at Spaceship Earth to find a Leave a Legacy tile. Fun Fact – each member from the 90’s boy band, NSync have a Legacy tile.
