Three More Characters Added to Disney’s Fab 50 Sculpture List

We are less than 40 days away from “The World’s Most Magical Celebration”! It’s hard to believe that after months and months of anticipating the arrival of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary we’re finally ALMOST there! The 18-month long celebration kicks off on October 1, 2021, and is sure to be packed with highly-anticipated experiences such as the new nighttime spectaculars including Magic Kingdom Park’s “Disney Enchantment” and EPCOT’s “Harmonious”. Our attention turns to a special new character collection that will be landing soon in the parks! While visiting any one of Walt Disney World’s four parks, Guests will have a chance to hunt for Disney’s new “Fab 50” character collection. There will be a golden statue for each Disney character included in the Fab 50 lineup that will be spread throughout the Parks, and we’ll have a chance to spot them! The countdown to which 50 characters make it into the “Fab 50” is underway as Disney has now revealed 37 of the 50 character sculptures so far. Check out the newest additions below!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and runDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways, and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. 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.
