Being that both Mickey and Minnie will be the hosts of this big event, they’ll be dressed for the occasion in custom-made fashions of EARidescent fabric with gold highlights.

Park Icons Transformation

Disney also announced that four of the park icons will get special looks for The World’s Most Magical Celebration – Disney World’s 50th Anniversary. Let’s take a closer look at that now!

The four Walt Disney World park icons will transform into Beacons of Magic with pixie dust on Cinderella Castle, magical fireflies inhabiting the Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and special new touches coming to life on the Hollywood Tower Hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. At EPCOT, new lights will shine across the reflective panels of Spaceship Earth, connecting to one another and resembling stars in a nighttime sky. This permanent new lighting will continue beyond “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” as a defining feature of the park.

Here’s a look at the concept art!

These park icons will look amazing in every park to celebrate the big event! As for the Epcot Transformation, Disney has confirmed that this new overlay will be here to stay even after the celebration making it permanent!

As you can imagine, we expect a whole lot more information as we get closer to October 1 regarding special shows, opening dates, and merchandise!
