Disney officials say that this similar to what was done at The Adventureland entrance last year as part of Operation Stardust. The project was developed to create more room all over the park for the opening and handling of crowds for Star Wars Galaxies Edge.  The permit states that the project is valued at around $200,000. Work has not begun on the Frontierland entrance project, while Disneyland remains closed.  In line with direction from government and health officials, the temporary closure of the Disneyland Resort includes construction sites and refurbishment projects, Disney officials said.

Frontierland. It is here that we experience the story of our country’s past. The color, romance and drama of frontier America as it developed from wilderness trails to roads, riverboats, railroads, and civilization. A tribute to the faith, courage, and ingenuity of our hearty pioneers who blaze the trails and made this progress possible.

—Walt Disney, July 17, 1955
