Walt Disney World turns 50 in October. In celebration, the typical Orlando International Airport arrival experience will get a little more magical.
According to the Disney Parks Blog, Disney Cast Members are working with the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) and Orlando International Airport (MCO) to transform the arrival experience this fall. The transformation will include:
- A large art installation in the terminal train stations, full of your favorite Disney characters.
- An immersive photo op in a recreated Disney ride vehicle.
- A bright glow of “EARidescent” light patterns in the airport.

“Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World share a commitment to the Central Florida community. We proudly recognize the outstanding accomplishment of our longtime partner as they celebrate this impressive 50th Anniversary milestone,” remarked Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of GOAA. “Collaborating on a commemorative presence at Florida’s busiest airport means we get to be the first moment of celebration for guests flying into Orlando to be part of the spectacular fanfare.”
