Walt Disney World Signage - Road Traffic Sign displays

This image shows the Walt Disney World Signage - Road Traffic Sign displays that guide you around Walt Disney World.
Walt Disney World Signage
The signs are uniform throughout the Disney

property. The land area of Walt Disney World is truly vast and routes from one location can take you on a long journey.

If you get lost trying to find your Hotel, not all are signposted at every sign. Best thing is to head for the nearest Hotel name that you see. Ask at the Security Checkpoint at it’s entrance and they will point you in the right direction. As a last resort, head for Downtown Disney. When you see the huge Car Parking Lot with Cirque du Soleil on the left or you get to the entrance to Typhoon Lagoon (on your right). Make a ‘U’ turn and all Walt Disney World area locations will be on the signs that you approach.
