It’s an exciting time to be at Walt Disney World!

With fireworks once again lighting up the sky, entertainment making a come back, and restaurants and experiences reopening, it’s a thrilling time to be in the parks say the least! We’ve been watching as Magic Kingdom’s Cinderella Castle has been transformed with stunning décor in preparation for the 50th.

Stunning! While we weren’t sure about the special 50th anniversary décor on the Cinderella Castle at first (especially when the décor fell off!), we personally love the look now that it has the final touches. It will be the perfect centerpiece for Magic Kingdom’s new nighttime spectacular, Disney Enchantment, beginning October 1, and a great focal point as we say goodbye to Happily Ever After nighttime spectacular.

Cinderella Castle looks like it is the star of the show when it comes to the 50th Anniversary, just check out Walt Disney World’s latest commercial encouraging guests to come join in the celebration:

You don’t have to ask us twice! We’ll be there ready to experience the celebration throughout the 18-months! Are you making plans to visit the “most magical place on earth” during this very special 50th Anniversary celebration?

About Mike/ Jamie

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 to Fastpasses 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. Usually 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 16 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.
