We are just over 70 days away from “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” at Walt Disney World! This 50th Anniversary celebration is going to be one to remember. Kicking off on October 1, and lasting a full 18-months, we simply can’t wait for all the excitement! We’ve already shared that a new nighttime spectacular is coming to Magic Kingdom, EPCOT’s Harmonious nighttime spectacular and new Ratatouille attraction will debut, and the list of festivities just keeps coming! Disney is slowly revealing the exciting characters that will make up the “Disney Fab 50” sculptures… and we now have a few more to add to the list!
During the magical celebration we’ll be able to hunt through all four Walt Disney World theme parks to find 50 golden character sculptures. As previously shared, the number one “Disney Fab 50” announced is of course, Mickey Mouse!
Now, we’ve learned Goofy is the second announced “Disney Fab 50” character, and will be located at Magic Kingdom! As shared by Disney, “Gawrsh! Bill Farmer, voice of Goofy, has revealed that Goofy is part of the “Disney Fab 50 Character Collection” that you’ll soon find across the four @WaltDisneyWorld theme parks during “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” starting Oct 1 #DisneyWorld50”
So, we have Mickey and Goofy… who’s next? Best buds, Timon and Pumbaa! Disney shares, “Don Hahn, producer of Walt @DisneyAnimation Studios’ The Lion King, has revealed that Timon & Pumbaa are part of the “Disney Fab 50 Character Collection” that you’ll soon find across the four @WaltDisneyWorld theme parks during “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” starting Oct 1 #DisneyWorld50”. You can be on the look for Timon and Pumbaa to be located at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Get ready to scavenger hunt through all four parks to virtually “collect” each golden Disney character sculpture on Instagram! We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the “Disney Fab 50” scavenger hunt, and who the remaining Disney characters may be. Do you have a character you’re especially hoping makes the list of 50?
