“The Most Magical Story on Earth: 50 Years of Walt Disney World” will be hosted by Disney Legend Whoopi Goldberg. She will take you on a journey spanning half a century and beyond at Walt Disney World. The show will also feature special performances from Halle Berry and Christina Aguilera, performing in front of the beautiful Cinderella Castle!

Viewers will get a look at how Disney and the Make-A-Wish Foundation have worked together for over 40 years.
The special will also spotlight some of Walt Disney World’s most memorable pop-culture moments, from the many sitcoms that filmed episodes in the theme parks to the conception of the ubiquitous “I’m going to Disney World!” campaign.
