We previously shared the exciting news that as part of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” honoring the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort, Disney would be introducing 50 fabulous Disney characters that will be cast in gold and displayed across the parks. Now, Disney shares more details on the “Disney Fab 50” series, including a special reveal of the first sculpture – Mickey Mouse, of course! Plus, check out the exciting details about the Disney Fab 50 scavenger hunt below!
As shared by Disney: “During the magical celebration, which begins on Oct. 1, you’ll be able to find these golden character sculptures throughout all four of the Resort’s parks. And leading up to their appearances, friends from around the Disney company will be announcing which characters you can expect to see – starting today with Bret Iwan, the voice of Mickey Mouse.”
The Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse sculptures are also being dedicated to Disney cast members of the past, present and future. After all, our cast – along with Mickey and Minnie- are truly considered the heart of the upcoming anniversary celebration.
Want to know more about this Scavenger Hunt? Disney has announced, “You can also virtually “collect” each golden Disney character sculpture on Instagram. To add a sculpture to Instagram Collections, just tap and hold the bookmark icon. Then, on the “Save to” screen, tap the collection where you want to save the image or create a new collection. Happy hunting!”
