As we continue to get closer and closer to the start of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary on October 1, 2021, more Disney Fab 50 Character Collection sculptures make their way into the parks, with the latest being seen at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park doesn’t have as many sculptures as Magic Kingdom, but they do have some great ones including Bambi & Thumper, Simba, Pumbaa & Timon, and Dory & Nemo.
You can find the sculptures all around the Tree of Life near the entrance of the park.
Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary:
- All four parks will be decked out with special celebratory decorations, including new lighting packages on the four park icons. These “Beacons of Magic” will transform the icons every night.
- Over at Magic Kingdom, a new fireworks show, “Disney Enchantment,” will light up the sky while “Harmonious” takes place as EPCOT.
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom will get into the celebration with the new show “Disney KiteTails.”
- 50 golden character sculptures will debut at all four theme parks, along with “Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade” at Magic Kingdom.
- Walt Disney World Resort announced new nametags for Cast Members to celebrate the 50th anniversary including those who were honored with the Walt Disney Legacy Award.
“The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” starts on October 1, 2021 at the Walt Disney World Resort and will continue to be celebrated for 18 months.
