The 50th anniversary celebrations at Walt Disney World are just around the corner! And as we quickly approach October 1, Guests are now seeing one of the elements installed at Magic Kingdom — the interactive character statues featuring beloved Disney Parks characters!
Disney has been slowly revealing just which characters will be featured in the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues, and this morning, much to our surprise, Imagineers installed some of them overnight at Magic Kingdom!
Walt Disney Imagineering took to Instagram to share photos of some of the new statues that arrived this morning at Magic Kingdom — Chip and Dale, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto:
Here’s your first look at some of the first “Disney Fab 50” Character Collection golden sculptures that were installed overnight inside Magic Kingdom Park. Over the next couple of weeks as we count down to the launch of #DisneyWorld50 on Oct. 1, 2021, guests visiting @WaltDisneyWorld Resort will begin to see additional sculptures appearing in all four theme parks. ✨
Guests can also keep their eyes out for other character statues at Magic Kingdom including Tinker Bell and Winnie the Pooh and Piglet! If you find any of the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues, let us know in the comments below!
Disney will also be installing character statues at the other theme parks — Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios. Be on the lookout for Timon and Pumbaa from Disney’s animated classic, The Lion King, Woody and Bo Peep from the Toy Story franchise, the iconic Orange Bird, R2-D2 from Star Wars, the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, and more!
