Construction is a BIG thing right now in Disney World since the 50th anniversary is coming up soon!
And, while we’re super excited for all the restaurants, attractions (Tron Lightcycle Run, baby!!), and more coming to the parks, we happened to spot a change today that gave us some major feels.
And, as we stopped by to find that it’s open again (yay!!!), we made a pretty sad discovery. Where did the old adorable carpet go???
While Big Top previously had colorful carpet that looked like stitched together tarps and was themed very circus-like…
…now it’s been switched to a dark gray carpet that doesn’t match the theme like the original did. Sad face. ):
The biggest problem with this carpet (other than the fact it’s not nearly as cute) is that it makes the already dark circus tent appear even darker. Tbh, it slightly gives us the creeps with how dark it is.
Buuut, not all hope is lost! The carpet may have been switched due to a possible flood in the store according to a Cast Member (who said that “unfortunately, Dumbo was splashing around”). The floor near the entrance to Big Top looks pretty unfinished, so we’re hoping that the new carpet is only a temporary fix.
Please bring back the fun themed carpet, Big Top!! We’ll keep you updated on any news on Big Top Souvenirs here! And, you can keep up with all the construction around the parks by subscribing to our newsletter!
