We’ve learned LOTS of fun stuff about Disney World’s 50th anniversary.
“The World’s Most Magical Celebration” will begin on October 1st, 2021 (Disney World’s 50th anniversary!) and last for 18 months after. There will be celebrations in all 4 parks — and Mickey and Minnie will even get brand-new costumes! And now, we know even more about how the beloved park icons will transform for the occasion.
We recently told you that the icons in ALL 4 PARKS will undergo a mini-transformation into “Beacons of Magic!” Well, Disney released some new concept art, so we now have a better idea of what these “Beacons of Magic” will look like.
In EPCOT, we’ll get new lights shining across the reflective panels on Spaceship Earth. These will connect and look like a starry night sky. Oh, and did we mention this particular mini-transformation is PERMANENT? Disney confirmed that this look will stick around past the 50th anniversary celebrations.
The Tower of Terror in Disney’s Hollywood Studios will get a makeover, too! We’ll get some “special new touches” as the Hollywood Tower Hotel glimmers with EARidescence (only Disney would make up a word like that). Seems like we’re throwing it back to the glitz and glitter of a bustling young movie town!
And lastly, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will sparkle, too. A warm light will surround the Tree of Life as enchanted fireflies dance around it. Sounds pretty magical to us!
This concept art all looks so exciting! We can’t wait for these transformations to make their debut. As Disney World’s 50th anniversary gets closer, we’ll continue bringing you the latest news. Stay tuned to DFB!
