Disney World amends sign rule for College GameDay's Magic Kingdom visit
College GameDay will be filming from the Happiest Place on Earth on Saturday morning, overlooking Main Street U.S.A from Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom theme park. It’s the first ever trip to the site and will help kick off the first college football Saturday of the season.
When the news was first announced that Magic Kingdom would be the host of College GameDay, it was met with mixed emotions. Due to Disney’s strict policies, no signs or flags were going to be permitted into the park.

That, of course, has always been a staple for the popular pregame show. Now, though, Disney is walking back some of its previous rules.
ESPN’s Press Room announced that signs and flags will now be permitted for the College GameDay show on Saturday morning. There are still specific guidelines for the signs, though.
Supporting the time-honored tradition of handheld signs during “College GameDay” broadcasts, we are making an exception for Guests to bring college football signs to Magic Kingdom Park on Aug. 24 only. Signs are only permitted in the broadcast viewing area until noon. After the broadcast, signs may be recycled in the park or returned to a vehicle or resort room.
Signs must be handheld (no poles, sticks or extensions) and may not contain commercial, derogatory, vulgar or political content. Blank signs or dry erase boards will not be permitted. Signs may not exceed 3’ x 5’ in size. Guests bringing signs to the park will not be able to board the Epcot and Resort Monorail and will be screened at the Transportation and Ticket Center or the Magic Kingdom bus loop. Signs are subject to approval and may not be allowed.
Valid theme park admission is required.
College GameDay will set the stage for Saturday night’s double-header of college football action. The night starts with Miami-Florida from Orlando, followed by Arizona-Hawai’i.
