The Magic Kingdom welcome show returned today in honor of the 50th anniversary with a special performance of our favorite Disney characters!

Walt Disney World Resort, The Most Magical Place on Earth, has officially kicked off its 50th anniversary, The World’s Most Magical Celebration. And, naturally, the very first (and the most magical, of course!) Disney World theme park, Magic Kingdom, is welcoming Disney fans of all ages today with a welcome show at Cinderella Castle to commemorate the historic occasion.

We were among the thousands of Walt Disney World fans who arrived at Magic Kingdom early today for the very first day of The World’s Most Magical Celebration, and we’re so happy to share the magic of Disney World’s 50th with all of you.

Just a week ago, we reported that the iconic welcome show was returning to Magic Kingdom in honor of the 50th, and now we’re happy to share that we have see the return of the show!

During the show, some of our very favorite Disney characters — Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and the rest of their friends — marched onto the Cinderella Castle stage, danced to a happy tune, and welcomed Guests to the theme park for the day. Though the show was short, it still gave Guests a touch of pixie dust to start their day at The Most Magical Place on Earth. And best of all? Mickey, Minnie, and the whole gang were dressed in their special EARidescent outfits!

Take a look at some photos from this adorable welcome show below!
