Walt Disney World 50th Anniversay Celebration

Walt Disney World 50th Anniversay Celebration

The big roll out for the celebration of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary on October 1st has begun!

(Yes – David & I will be there and we have a theme park reservation for the Magic Kingdom October 1st!)

Beginning Oct. 1, Walt Disney World will throw “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” in honor of the 50th anniversary, bringing new experiences to the four theme parks and beyond. This milestone is such a big deal, they have even coined a new word – “EARidescence” – to describe what you’ll see when you visit. Disney teams are creating all sorts of new decorations that will shimmer and sparkle all day and into the night.

As part of the celebration, Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom will add to its royal makeover from last year. The castle will feature golden bunting and a 50th anniversary crest as part of its festive new look.

The castle will add even more magic at night, joined by icons at each of the other three theme parks as they transform into Beacons of Magic. There will be pixie dust on Cinderella Castle, magical fireflies inhabiting the Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and special new touches coming to life on the Hollywood Tower Hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

And at EPCOT, new lights will shine across the reflective panels of Spaceship Earth, connecting to one another and resembling stars in a nighttime sky. This permanent new lighting will continue beyond “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” as a defining feature of the park.

You’ll also want to keep an eye out for Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, who will have sparkling new looks for the celebration. As hosts of the event, they’ll be dressed for the occasion in custom-made fashions of EARidescent fabric with gold highlights.

Stayed tuned for announcements about more events and extras leading up to the anniversary.
