Additional Details Just Released Regarding Disney World’s 50th Anniversary!

Today, Disney has treated us to additional information regarding their plans for the celebration of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary.

“The World’s Most Magical Celebration” will kick off on October 1st, 2021, and will last for 18 months. Cinderella Castle will be decorated with ornaments, a special anniversary crest and gold bunting. At night, the castle will appear to be covered in pixie dust.

Mickey and Minnie’s costumes for the big anniversary will feature varying shades of EARidescent purple and teal fabric.

Gold shoes and bows for the golden anniversary are nice touches!

Each park icon will become a “Beacon of Magic” as they receive a new look via projection technology for the occasion. At night, the Tree of Life will appear to be covered with glimmering fireflies, and “special new touches” will come to Hollywood Studios’ Tower of Terror.

The lighting effects for Spaceship Earth, meant to resemble a starry night, will be permanent.

Today’s details are in addition to last night’s sneak peek preview which revealed bits and pieces of possible projections on the Disney World park icons, as well as glimpses of Mickey and Minnie’s special costumes for the celebration.
