April 19, 2019: The Adventureland arch is down, replaced by the small sign on the right.
April 15, 2019: You can see all the wasted walkway space. The new Adventureland sign will be much bigger, maybe 2x.
Disneyland has filed a permit to demolish the current Adventureland sign and widen the pathway in preparation for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge crowds.
According to the permit, Disney will replace the sign with a new one that doesn’t rely on footers in the walking space. The exact wording in the permit calls for a “demo [of] existing marquee and install new with footings and sign”.
This widening should increase the opening into Adventureland by at least 10 feet.
By comparison, look how wide the Adventureland entrance is at the Magic Kingdom:
Now, that’s a nice, wide walkway…plenty of room for guests and strollers!
So many guests standing around here at the ride’s entrance waiting for family to return.
However, we still expect a bottleneck of people by the Indiana Jones ride.
Only looks like this when the ride is closed.
This is all part of a park-wide effort to widen several pathways for the massive crowds expected when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens on May 31st.
