Disney has announced a new cavalcade and some new park statues for the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World on October 1, 2021.  Both of these offerings will be coming to the Magic Kingdom.

First up is the Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade.

This new Anniversary offering will feature Mickey and Friends wearing new “EARidescent” outfits.  The cavalcade will be traveling through the Magic Kingdom a few times a day.

Here’s the write-up:

Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be your hosts for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” and they’ll be decked out in sparkling new EARidescent fashions for the 50th anniversary. As you can see in the photo above, their best pals want to get in on the shimmer, too, as Donald Duck and Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto, and Chip ‘n’ Dale will be sporting their own custom-made EARidescent looks beginning Oct. 1. You’ll get a chance to see them when they travel through Magic Kingdom Park several times daily in the new “Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade.

Disney Fab 50 Golden Statues

Another addition for the 50th Anniversary celebration are new statues in the hub area.

In this artist rendering Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are featured as special golden character sculptures in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. They will be joined by 50 characters as part of the “Disney Fab 50,” a new collection of golden sculptures debuting Oct. 1, 2021, across all four Walt Disney World theme parks as part of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” honoring the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort.

Here’s the write-up:

These eight friends will also be featured in special golden character sculptures debuting Oct. 1 at Magic Kingdom Park; in this artist rendering, you can see Mickey and Minnie shining in the sunlight near Cinderella Castle. There will be 50 characters total in this series of sculptures that will be displayed across all four theme parks. We’ll soon reveal more of the “Disney Fab 50” as excitement builds for the big day, as well as the surprising ways you’ll be able to interact with these beautiful sculptures as part of the 50th anniversary celebration.

You can interact with the sculptures?  Well let’s hope that means actual interaction and not just take pictures for social media, especially Instagram and Tik Tok, with a special hashtag for interaction.

Or Scan the code to see an animation you can put on your picture to share to Instagram with a special hashtag.

I’m just trying to figure out how they’re going to but 50 statues in and around that area without being too disruptive.  But we shall see.

Hopefully they hold up better than the castle decorations, but they’ll match Walt and Mickey.
