Stunning Disney World Commercial Debuts for 50th Anniversary
A new Walt Disney World commercial celebrating the theme park’s 50th anniversary just aired on Disney Parks Blog and it’s simply magical! We watched it a couple of times already and can’t contain our excitement for what will certainly be a magical celebration!
The commercial begins with a closeup of the clock on Cinderella Castle reading 11:59. Viewers then see what appears to be an old room filled with file cabinets and remnants from Walt Disney World’s iconic history.
Walt Disney World’s Iconic History
Cinderella’s slipper, Peter Pan’s hat, the Enchanted Rose from Beauty and the Beast, and “variety of artifacts from beloved Disney stories, characters and attractions” are clearly visible in this room. Most prominent, however, is Mickey’s sorcerer hat lying on top of a file cabinet.
We then get a closeup of the file cabinet labeled “50th Magic” and subsequently see the clock strike 12:00. As soon as that happens, the file cabinet bursts open and a swarm of pixie dust comes flying out!
Beams of Pixie Dust
The pixie dust goes from high atop Cinderella Castle and then up Main Street U.S.A. toward the front of Magic Kingdom. The sequence then shows a Cast Member hanging a “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” flag with a 50 on it outside the entrance of Epcot near Spaceship Earth.
We then see a family and thrilled young children run to a window as the pixie dust swooshes by. The Tree of Life in Animal Kingdom is then lit up by the pixie dust much to the surprise of onlooking giraffes. You can hear a beautiful instrumental of “A Whole New World” during this sequence.
