A permit has been filed with the city of Anaheim for more construction at Disneyland Park. The permit is for the entrance of Frontierland. It is asking for the replacement of the two 15 foot high gates and replacement of the 16 foot wide Frontierland sign. It is also asking for the widening of the bridge going into the land.
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.
