On October 1, Disney will celebrate a monumental milestone — 50 years of magic at the Walt Disney World Resort. Disney Enchantment fireworks will light up the night sky at Magic Kingdom, the Harmonious nighttime spectacular will premiere at EPCOT, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will officially open at EPCOT, and celebratory decorations and experiences will be everywhere.
However, Disney does not want to limit the incredible experience to only those Guests who can make it to the theme park. They want everyone who loves Disney to celebrate the magic — and they are making it so you don’t even have to leave your couch!
Also on October 1, ABC will air the special The Most Magical Story on Earth: 50 Years of Walt Disney World. From the day ground was broken in Central Florida to what Guests are immersed in at the Parks today, The Most Magical Story on Earth will take you on a historic journey.
