PHOTOS: Exclusive Preview of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration
Surprise! We have some pretty magical news! Greg and Elyssa were invited to an exclusive preview of the 50th anniversary celebration and MickeyBlog will be bringing you all the exciting details along the way!
50th Anniversary Preview Event
The media preview event is taking place today through Friday. The lucky participants will be enjoying a variety of special experiences and sneak peeks and we can’t wait to see what’s in store!
Greg and Elyssa checked in to Coronado Springs this morning and wasted no time getting started on their magical journey.
The lobby at the resort’s convention center got a magical 50th anniversary overlay for the special event. Banners with the 50th anniversary logo framed the gorgeous registration desk.
Guests who attended the event were each presented with a celebratory swag bag (we’ll get to those in a bit!) And check out those floral arrangements! Disney went all out for this exclusive preview.
A beautiful EARidescent backdrop was set up for photo ops, which of course Greg and Elyssa had to take advantage of!
Photo props were even provided to make the moment extra magical. From left to right, the choices were glasses with “50” on top, a Mickey bar, #DisneyWorld50, Spaceship Earth, the Tree of Life, Cinderella’s Castle, a Mickey ear hat, and Tower of Terror.
I can’t imagine how excited these two must be! What an opportunity!
On to the swag bags! What an assortment! Each commemorative backpack was filled with some pretty great stuff, including an adorable notepad that resembles an opening day ticket to Disney World and a Jungle Cruise skipper hat.
Greg and Elyssa also received commemorative Mickey ear hats, complete with their names embroidered on the back. How adorable is that!?
New 50th Anniversary Updates
We also got a sneak peek at some other new updates for the 50th. It looks like Key to the World cards got a new look, complete with that gorgeous iridescent sparkle and little “50” in the corner.
And mornings at Disney just got a little more magical, too! Take a look at the special K-cups in rooms now!
This is just the beginning, guys! Be sure to keep following MickeyBlog over the next few days for even more magical previews and surprises. There’s so much to celebrate and we can’t wait to share every moment with you!
