As Disney prepared for the 50th Anniversary Celebrations at Walt Disney World, they also extended these golden touches outside of the Disney Resort.  Many Guests that visit Walt Disney World, first find themselves walking through the Orlando International Airport. As soon as travelers land in the airport they can step into the magic of Disney.

The terminal train stations feature an overlay with an art display showcasing the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection.  Guests can celebrate their “very merry unbirthday” while posing with a golden teacup inspired by the Mad Tea Party attraction.

This is such a fun way to enjoy the magic of Disney once you land at the Orlando International Airport. Check out all of the fun details of this overlay HERE.

Many Guests are excited to visit Walt Disney World this holiday season. Back in November, we shared that both tickets and Park Pass Reservations were unavailable for many dates around the holidays.

Disney also recently paused sales for NEW Annual Passes. With the busy holiday season approaching and park pass availability limited, many Guests will not be able to visit the parks. This pause in select Annual Passes was a way to help manage attendance. Check out which passes were affected HERE.
