Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary is all it seems like anyone can talk about these days! While it’s going to be a magical celebration launching on October 1 within the Walt Disney World bubble, Disney has decided to carry the excitement beyond the “bubble”. This fall, guests traveling via Orlando International Airport will have a chance to experience a new Disney shop AND special 50th Anniversary décor while at the airport!

As shared by Disney: “With so much excitement ahead, we want you to feel immersed in the magic as soon as you arrive in Central Florida, which is why a talented group of cast members is hard at work transforming the arrival experience at Orlando International Airport (MCO) with the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA). Coming just in time for the 50th anniversary celebration this fall, airport passengers will discover many exciting Disney touches, including a wide-spanning art installation in the terminal train stations featuring favorite Disney characters, new magic engaging passengers as they walk through a glistening glow of projected EARidescent light patterns, and an immersive photo opportunity with a re-creation of a Disney ride vehicle to capture special memories as they make their way through the airport. As part of this special transformation at the airport, we’re excited to also be working with GOAA on a new Magic of Disney store location opening with the South Terminal Complex in 2022.”
