And if you’re planning to be there for the marquee anniversary, you likely already know this isn’t going to be your AVERAGE Disney World vacation. And so, you need to pack accordingly.
Magic Kingdom is getting some touch-ups for Disney World’s 50th anniversary!
Cinderella Castle is undergoing a major transformation, and Fantasyland is getting some spiffying up! On top of some fresh paint, shimmering gold leaf decor is being added to some classic attractions. We’ve already seen some signs of this on Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, but when we stopped by today we noticed some MAJOR progress!
That new pink and blue paint job is gorgeous, but next to it, well Fantasyland was starting to look a little less like it flowed with the Magic Kingdom’s centerpiece!

Today, at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) expo, Josh D’Amaro shared several updates on a number of ongoing and upcoming projects for Disney parks around the world.
As the Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products, D’Amaro had a LOT to discuss in his presentation, and we got a chance to get more insight into what the company’s plans are for moving forward following the pandemic. He talked about several new attractions, hotels, and restaurants, but he also briefly discussed something that thoroughly excites us: plans for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary!
