Disney World is gearing up for its 50th anniversary celebration. Starting on October 1, this 50th anniversary will be represented around the Resort by 50 fabulous characters from some of Disney and Pixar’s most beloved stories.
Today, August 8, Disney revealed that the Cheshire Cat will be joining the Fab 50!
Jeff Vahle, president of the Walt Disney World Resort, took to Instagram with the help of some fantastic Fantasyland Cast Members to announce this special statue.
The Cheshire Cat will join other characters such as Pooh and Piglet, Dante, Timon and Pumbaa, and many others to create a stunning display of golden statues in honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary milestone:
It was my pleasure to join Ben and LaTara to reveal that Cheshire Cat is part of the “Disney Fab 50 Character Collection” you’ll soon find across the four @WaltDisneyWorld theme parks. Remember, “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” starts October 1!
Fans have been loving each and every announcement, and since there will be 50 characters in total, we still have plenty more to come!
