Disney World’s 50th Anniversary
The Most Magical Place on Earth is celebrating 50 years! Disney is celebrating big for this special milestone. Character costumes, extended park hours, 50 golden statues of our favorite characters, and so much are just a little of what we can expect to see during the 18 month long celebration.
Check out our full guide to the 50th HERE.
According to Disney Parks Blog:
Platinum-selling songwriter and music producer Alana Da Fonseca answered the call to create an original anthem for the 50th Anniversary, collaborating with award-winning composer Emily Bear and singing phenom Journi on “The Magic Is Calling.”
Da Fonseca’s pop music style, Bear’s soaring orchestrations and Journi’s magical vocal performance come together to create a song that is all at once nostalgic, inspirational and contemporary.
Take a listen here:
“It’s such a tremendous honor to write something that celebrates a place that brings so much joy to so many people,” said Da Fonseca. “There’s magic all around us, and when you’re there, you are feeling it at every turn.”
In today’s update, Disney also shared a sneak peek of what the park icons will look as Beacons of Magic.
The anthem above will be playing in a variety of ways throughout the theme parks as the icons transform at night. “The Magic Is Calling” will also be included in special live entertainment moments across Walt Disney World Resort. You’ll hear the anthem during Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade, featuring the “EARidescent 8” each day at Magic Kingdom Park.
Listen for custom arrangements of the song performed by everyone from the Main Street Philharmonic and Dapper Dans to the Discovery Island Drummers and Voices of Liberty.
Cinderella Castle, Spaceship Earth, Hollywood Tower Hotel and the Tree of Life will each shine like never before and come to life on select nights with their own unique EARidescent glow.
