Emporium Windows Receive 50th Anniversary Treatment
With just ten days before the Walt Disney World Resort kicks off its 50th anniversary celebration, the Emporium debuted its new window scapes today. Featuring a plethora of EARidescent merchandise for the occasion, the new windows dazzle Main Street U.S.A. with their gold and deep blue shades.
The entire wall of windows lining Magic Kingdom’s main street now display a bold border of the thematic colors that mark “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.”
The new displays feature an array of vintage photo frames with classic Disney characters in their anniversary best.
The 50th annivesrary logo also features prominently on a number of the windows in a bunting-esque design. Cinderella Castle takes center stage on a number of windows as well.
The buntings feature an array of “EARidescnet” fireworks with bright shining stars in the center. Of course, what Walt Disney World celebration would be complete without a nod to the nighttime extravaganzas that define Disney World evening entertainment.
Outlines of the timeless Main Street U.S.A. storefronts also dot the bottom of the border. They provide a perfect framing for the enormous variety of merchandise dispalyed, which just released yesterday for the 18-month occasion.
Though many windows feature the bold and dazzling hues that will define this monumental occasion, other portraits offer a more vintage look at park icons. Many of the more subtle designs use a white background to make the golden, irridescent hues shine more brightly.
Festivities Abound at the Emporium
Further back from the curb, the Emporium also continues to provide ample fall spirit through its pumpkin-lined windows, leaf-draped awnings, and incredible drapings in seasonal orange, yellow and brown.
The 50th anniversary celebration officially begins on Oct. 1, marking the opening of the Magic Kingdom to guests 50 years ago on that date. Dubbed “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” festivities to mark the milestone will continue for 18 months to give guests plenty of time to experience the magic.
