Disney World unveils 50th Anniversary wrappers for buses and Skyliner gondolas

The Twittersphere is alive and well this morning and over the past day or two with photos of the brand new 50th Anniversary Celebration wrappers for Disney World buses and Skyliner gondolas, and so far, we think we like them!

Disney World buses feature a bright blue background and Mickey and Minnie in their 50th Anniversary Celebration outfits, and the numbers 5 and 0 are easy to spot as well. We love the swirls of 50 years of magic along the length of the bus too!

Here’s a look at the bus in motion, thanks to @CUL8RTrashCanss

@ScottGustin shared these photos of the 50th Anniversary Celebration wraps for the Skyliner gondolas, complete with the words, “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” and, of course, the “50” where everyone can see!

It doesn’t look like every gondola is getting the 50th-anniversary special treatment.

Most of the photos we’ve seen feature only a yellow Skyliner gondola with the new wrapper. Whether that’s because it takes some time to get the wrappers on approximately 300 gondolas or because Disney World has decided to only outfit some of the gondolas with the wrappers, we aren’t sure yet. It’s still a few weeks until the anniversary.

The newly-designed wrappers for both the Walt Disney World buses and the Skyliner gondolas have only been out for a couple of days and are just another part of the “World’s Most Magical Celebration,” commemorating the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World on October 1.

The excitement over the upcoming anniversary celebration continues to build, and more surprises are in store for Walt Disney World fans.

What do you think about the wrappers for the buses and gondolas? Do you think Disney will continue with wrappers on more gondolas? Let us know your thoughts and what you like or what you’d change about the new designs.


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!
