Preparations are in full swing for the 50th anniversary of Disney World. Disney Cast Members will receive a special little something to wear on their uniforms to celebrate the occasion! See the sneak peek below.
The celebrations will begin on October 1, 2021 and will run 18 months. That means the special events and entertainment will be over sometime in the spring of 2023 – likely the end of March!
Cinderella Castle is in the process of receiving a full makeover. Crew members painted it during the closure last year, and since then Imagineers have added ribbons, jewels, and special drapery. See the most recent update HERE.
Attractions will also receive touch ups of paint and shimmering gold leaves on signs. Right now, the majority of the work is being done in Fantasyland but crews will likely move on to other areas of the park.
We also have a sneak peek of the new costumes Mickey and Minnie will be sporting for the celebrations. Their new outfits features special “ear-idescent” fabric with unique embroidery of Cinderella Castle. Shimmery blues, purples, and gold hues will be featured.
More will be shared in the coming months as we inch closer to October. Check out everything you need to know about the celebrations HERE.
Honoring Cast Members
As we continue to see special touches like gold leaves on attractions and all the bells and whistles on the castle, we will also soon see new additions to the Cast Member uniform.
I love interacting with the Cast Members and learning more about them. Every Cast Member has a name tag with their name and hometown. Disneyland Cast Members recently received new name tags that say “Bringing Back the Magic.” Now, it’s Disney World’s turn for fun new name tags!
Check out the sneak peek below. You can see it has the same purple and blue tones as the rest of the anniversary theming.
