In case you haven’t heard, for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, Guests will be able to enjoy the first-ever interactive character statues featuring beloved Disney Parks characters!
We already knew that Timon and Pumbaa from Disney’s animated classic, The Lion King as well as two members of the Fab Five — Goofy and Mickey Mouse — would be included in the 50 interactive statues. Now, we are learning of another interactive statue, which will feature two characters — Winnie the Pooh and Piglet!
Pooh and Piglet are iconic Disney characters who always bring the child out in all of us. It’s safe to say that the second you think of Winnie the Pooh, you are brought back to your childhood and so it makes perfect sense for these two characters to be highlighted in one of the 50 statues.
Disney Springs took to Instagram to share the announcement of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet being the fourth statue for Disney World’s 50th, writing:
Exciting news! George A. Kalogridis, Walt Disney World 50th Global Ambassador, has revealed that Winnie the Pooh and Piglet are part of the “Disney Fab 50 Character Collection” that you’ll soon find across the four @waltdisneyworld theme parks during “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” starting October 1! ✨ #DisneyWorld50
These 50 golden character statues will honor those who have shaped Disney for us in one way or another, and now we know Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Timon and Pumbaa, and now Winnie the Pooh and Piglet will all be on display to commemorate this milestone. We cannot wait to see who else is added to this incredible lineup so far!
Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get information regarding the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection.
