Disney’s BoardWalk Slide Gets New Mickey & Pals Design with No Sign of Clown

UPDATE: The Instagram post noted below has been removed. As you’ll see in the photo below “Kiester” is spelled incorrectly and should read “Keister”. As soon as this was noted on the post, the full post was removed. It looks like Disney will need a new paint job on that portion of the re-imagined slide!


As previously shared, Disney’s Boardwalk Resort Keister Coaster slide was removed for refurbishment back in October. A Disney Imagineer has taken to Instagram to show the progress with a sneak peek photo of a new graphic, with the clown seemingly gone for good.

As shared on Instagram from Imagineer, Zach Riddley, Walt Disney World Site Portfolio Executive:

“Our @waltdisneyworld and @WaltDisneyImagineering teams are almost complete with the brand-new design at the end of the Keister Coaster slide at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort. In this sneak peek photo of our team installing the new graphic, you can see that now Mickey Mouse and his pals are the ones clowning around as they splash down into Luna Park Pool. I can’t wait for guests to join along in the fun when the slide reopens soon!”
