Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary will be here before we know it!
On October 1st, the 18-month celebration will begin and it’s going to be HUGE. Disney has announced new projections on Main Street, U.S.A., a new character cavalcade, and a NEW FIREWORKS SHOW in Magic Kingdom! We’ll also see the opening of long-awaited attractions like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in EPCOT! And, we just found out about another special part of the celebration that will honor some classic Disney characters.
On October 1st, 50 classic Disney pals will be getting special golden character sculptures around all 4 parks! Yes, you read that right, FIFTY characters! Some of the characters include Mickey and Minnie Mouse, who will be displayed near Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom.
Other characters we know are getting statues are Donald and Daisy Duck, Goofy, Pluto, and Chip ‘n’ Dale!
Disney says they will soon reveal more of the “Disney Fab 50” as excitement builds for the big day.
They also said there will be surprising ways we’ll be able to interact with the sculptures as part of the celebration.
We can’t wait to see what other characters will be getting statues! Maybe we’ll see the princesses or some beloved Pixar characters like Buzz and Woody! We’ll keep you updated as soon as we find out who more of the statues will be, so stay tuned to DFB!
