The World’s Most Magical Celebration

Beginning October 1, 2021, the Walt Disney World Resort will celebrate five decades of magic with an 18-month celebration filled with new and refreshed attractions, shows, characters, restaurants, resorts, and adventures.

Taking place across the resort’s four theme parks and beyond, The World’s Most Magical Celebration will welcome guests ‘home’ to experience the magic again.

EARidescent Décor

Walt Disney World 50th World's Most Magical Celebration

The centerpiece of The World’s Most Magical Celebration will be Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park.

In 2020 the Castle underwent a royal makeover that included a new color scheme that included bold, shimmering, and regal enhancement. And in honor of the 50th anniversary, Walt Disney Imagineering developed new colors, gold detailing, and vibrant hues for this makeover, drawing inspiration from Disney Legend Mary Blair’s vision of the classic film “Cinderella.”

Guests will get to take in Cinderella Castle as it is adorned with new gold bunting, sparkling golden embellishments, among other new enhancements, including a 50th anniversary crest.

Hosts with the Most

As hosts of The World’s Most Magical Celebration, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be dressed for the occasion. 

Walt Disney World has shared images of these new celebratory designs that include beautifully embroidered impressions of Cinderella Castle backed by fireworks, as well as a brocade in multi-toned, in EARidescent fabric – punctuated with pops of gold.

Heart of the Celebration

“You can design and create and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.” – Walt Disney

What makes the heart of the Walt Disney World resort beat is its cast members, and during The World’s Most Magical Celebration, they will have their time to shine as they will be spreading even more pixie dust across Walt Disney World Resort.

Magic by Nightfall

As the sun sets, the fun will just be getting started!

At each of the Walt Disney World theme parks, their icon will transform into magnificent Beacons of Magic with their own EARidescent glow.

Walt Disney World has described each as:

Walt Disney World 50th Most

Cinderella Castle will illuminate the Magic Kingdom Park with a dazzling radiance that sparkles with pixie dust.

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, a warm light will emanate from the Tree of Life as magical fireflies gather to usher in the magic of nature.

The Hollywood Tower Hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be awash in a brilliance evoking the golden age of imagination and adventure.

And at EPCOT, new lights will shine across the reflective panels of Spaceship Earth, connecting to one another in a symbol of optimism resembling stars in a nighttime sky. The iconic structure’s permanent new lighting will continue beyond “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” as a defining feature of the park.

I personally cannot wait to see these Beacons of Magic light up the night sky!

Say Bonjour to New Additions

Walt Disney World 50th World's Most Magical Celebration
Disney Parks Blog

While details are still coming to light about “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek did announce the new additions that would be opening in EPCOT’s France Pavilion on October 1, 2021.

In the newly expanded area of the pavilion inspired by the world of Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award-winning “Ratatouille,” guests will have the opportunity to experience Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.

This new family-friendly attraction invites guests into a flavorful world where they will feel as if they have shrunk to the size of Chef Remy to scurry through Gusteau’s famous restaurant.

Alongside of the attraction, La Crêperie de Paris, an all-new restaurant offering both table- and quick-service options, will open with a menu featuring sweet crepes, savory buckwheat galettes (naturally gluten-friendly), and authentic French hard cider.
