Disney’s Fab 50 Castle Countdown Is FULL – But We’re Missing #50

With under 25 days away from Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, we’re gearing up for a fantastic Fall with big celebrations honoring 50 years of magic. The 18-month long magical celebration begins on October 1, 2021, and Disney’s preparations are well underway. Two new nighttime spectaculars including Magic Kingdom’s “Disney Enchantment“ and EPCOT’s “Harmonious” are coming to Disney Parks. Disney’s newest attraction, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is coming to EPCOT while over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, “Disney KiteTails” will soon be making a debut. While we are looking forward to all of these experiences the “Disney Fab 50” character collection coming to all four parks is drawing another experience to add to the celebration. We have been counting down the sculpture reveals below. The Fab 50 character collection Castle slots seem to be full, but by our count – we’re missing a statue… character #50. Check out the latest additions and our character list below.

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary, beginning October 1, Guests will have a chance to scavenger hunt through each theme Park including Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom to virtually “collect” golden Disney character sculptures on Instagram. One of the most recent sculpture additions was announced by restaurant owner and Chef, Wolfgang Puck who took to Disney Parks Blog Instagram stories to share the news that #45 and #46 is a golden statue for Lady and the Tramp who will be joining the Fab 50 lineup!

Despite the Castle countdown slots being full – by our count, that leaves us with only ONE character sculpture reveal remaining! Which Disney character do you believe will be #50 for the “Disney Fab 50” lineup or is Disney stopping with a “Fab 49” collection instead of the full 50 characters? Maybe Tinker Bell will be flying above the Castle slots, or maybe a character will take the place of the “50” window on the countdown? There is however a possibility that Genie will be added to the list, as he is part of the new McDonald’s Happy Meal toys in celebration of the 50th. We’ll share the news of the full list coming to each Disney Park as soon as all of the golden character sculptures are revealed!

There isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 18 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family, we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
