Known as “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” Disney World will begin its anniversary festivities on October 1, 2021 to commemorate exactly 50 years since Magic Kingdom first opened its gates in 1971.
And as we inch closer to the celebration, Disney is announcing more of what Guests can expect during this exciting time, including a new ABC television special called “The Most Magical Story on Earth: 50 Years of Walt Disney World”.
Shortly after Disney announced the new television special, a stage appeared in the Magic Kingdom hub — which could possibly be related to filming “The Most Magical Story on Earth: 50 Years of Walt Disney World”.
Bioreconstruct took to Twitter to share a photo of the new stage that has appeared inside the Magic Kingdom hub along with the caption:

At this time, we do not know what this stage is for or how long it will be placed inside the Magic Kingdom hub, but it could be relating to the 50th anniversary celebrations or the ABC television special. Inside the Magic will update you as we get information surrounding the new stage.
This 18-month event will feature new experiences at all four Walt Disney World theme parks — including Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Guests will see shimmering EARidescent décor, new experiences, and more as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and their friends host the celebration, alongside Walt Disney World Cast Members.
