The connection between Disney and McDonald’s has been around for quite some time, but things are getting even more exciting than just a Happy Meal toy.
As the 50th anniversary celebrations are now around the corner, Disney and Mcdonald’s are teaming up in more ways than one. Of course, we already know about the 50 Happy Meal toys that will represent the Fab 50 characters at Walt Disney World Resort. In case you missed it, Disney created golden statues and called them the Fab 50. Statues of iconic Disney characters can be found throughout Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom Park, and EPCOT.
Below is a complete list of all the characters available. Note that you will not see Figment or Orange Bird as part of the Happy Meal collection.
The full list of characters include Celebration Mickey Mouse, Flounder, Timothy Mouse, Abu, Genie, Bambi, Celebration Dale, R2-D2, Celebration Minnie Mouse, Sebastian, Bruni, Tinker Bell, Bo Peep, Cheshire Cat, Miguel, Joe Gardner, Celebration Daisy Duck, Celebration Goofy, Piglet, Lumiere, Frozone, Dory, Dante, BB-8, Celebration Pluto, Lady Tramp, Jaq, Rocket, Edna Mode, Jiminy Cricket, Simba, Winnie The Pooh, Cogsworth, Gus, HeiHei, Mad Hatter, Stitch, Woody, Groot, Olaf, Pua, Pinocchio, Celebration Donald Duck, Dumbo, Pumbaa, Thumper, Celebration Chip, Nemo, and Timon.
But, you can also win a Walt Disney World vacation, which may get some of you Disney fans more excited than the new toy collection. McDonald’s is hosting the “Celebrate the Magic Sweepstakes at McDonald’s,” and it is entirely free to enter!
