Disney World 50th anniversary toys coming to McDonald’s Happy Meals Sept. 14

Disney World’s 50th anniversary is just one month from today, and Disney’s not alone in the celebration.

Beginning September 14, McDonald’s Happy Meals will reportedly include one of 50 WDW 50th anniversary-themed toys, each one resembling one of the Disney’s Fab 50 statues that have been released over the past several weeks.

In fact, with the exception of Figment from EPCOT’s Journey Into Imagination attraction and the famed Disney Orange Bird, the other revealed Fab 50 characters are accounted for in these photos of the new toys.┬áIn place of Figment and the Orange Bird, 2 different toys are substituted, but we aren’t sure why the two iconic characters aren’t part of the McDonald’s toys line-up.

According to, the anniversary celebration toys will be available in Happy Meals purchased at McDonald’s, beginning on September 14 and through October 25, 2021.

The site gives credit to a contributor, simply named “Timothy” for sending the photos of the Disney Fab 50 toys in to the site to use in a post about the surprise kids’ meal toys, so it’s possible the photos were leaked and that news about the toys wasn’t to be released until a later date.

Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration is one that has been in the works for a few years now, and the celebration promises to be one impossible to forget and fitting for the 50th anniversary of the Most Magical Place on Earth.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
