This October, Walt Disney World turns 50 years old. In preparation for the big celebration (including a brand-new fireworks nighttime spectacular), Imagineers have prepared some stunning Cinderella Castle 50th anniversary decorations. This includes the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection of 50 gold character statues around WDW’s four parks, Disney Enchantment (a new fireworks show at Magic Kingdom), Harmonious (a new fireworks show at EPCOT), the new KiteTails experience at Animal Kingdom, and the opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in the France Pavilion at EPCOT. And, of course, Mickey and co. will be sporting their finest 50th anniversary duds as they celebrate across the Magic Kingdom.
FIRST LOOK: Cinderella Castle 50th Anniversary Decorations
Ahead of the anniversary celebration this October, Imagineers have added a 50th anniversary sign and decorations to Cinderella Castle, the most iconic symbol from the parks.
One of our favorite Imagineers, Zach Riddley, commented on the 50th anniversary medallion on Cinderella Castle, and his words perfectly encapsulated our reaction: “I love the gothic touches around the medallion frame. Those shapes and golden color allows this limited time addition to the castle blend perfectly into the architectural composition.”
More Cinderella Castle 50th Anniversary Photos
Our reporter Julie de la Fe captured the stunning photography above. On a recent trip, our communications director, Tatjana Lazar, took even more Cinderella Castle photos as we head into the 50th. Our jaws are dropping.
