Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary will be here before you know it!
SO much is happening for the celebration, including a new fireworks show, new golden character statues around the parks, a new ride opening, and a ton of merchandise being released, just to name a few! We’re less than 50 days away from October 1st, the start of the 18-month-long celebration, and now, we have even more to look forward to thanks to Disney’s latest announcement!
An original anthem has been created for Disney World’s 50th anniversary!
Disney revealed that the anthem is named “The Magic Is Calling” and was created by platinum-selling songwriter and music producer Alana Da Fonseca, award-winning composer Emily Bear, and singing phenom Journi. The three came together together to make a song that is, “all at once nostalgic, inspirational, and contemporary.”
“The Magic Is Calling” will be used for the celebration in a variety of ways. It will connect to all four parks by playing when each theme park icon transforms into a Beacon of Magic at night, using different arrangements of the song. It will also be included in special live entertainment moments across Walt Disney World, like during Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade every day in Magic Kingdom.
And there will even be custom arrangements of the song performed by groups like the Main Street Philharmonic, Dapper Dans, Discovery Island Drummers, and Voices of Liberty!
You can take a look at the behind the scenes of the making of “The Magic Is Calling” in the video below:
