October 8, 2021
After 50 years of dazzling Guests from all around the globe, Walt Disney World® Resort commemorates its anniversary with The World’s Most Magical Celebration, beginning October 1 and continuing for 18 months of events. The fun includes transforming each park icon into a Beacon of Magic, illuminated with enchanting lights at night.* More than being simply iridescent, these distinctive sights are “EARidescent,” inspired by the kind of magic only Disney could dream up. Take a sneak peek at the Beacons of Magic here. And, when you’re ready to book your getaway to see them in person, use your Disney® Visa® Credit Card for special vacation financing on select vacation packages to help make planning a cinch.1
Magic Kingdom® Park: Cinderella Castle
For Disney fans far and wide, Cinderella Castle has become a timeless reminder to believe in fairy tales. A centerpiece of the 50th anniversary celebration, the Castle’s new look takes that enchantment even further, as it shimmers with pixie dust that would make the Fairy Godmother proud. The Castle sparkles and pulses with magic, calling everyone to join the celebration.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park: The Tree of Life
This special presentation brings new life to The Tree of Life. During The World’s Most Magical Celebration, it will look as if countless fireflies gather around The Tree of Life to evoke the natural beauty of Earth and bring extra twinkles to the eyes of every Guest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios®: Hollywood Tower Hotel
When Guests “drop in” to the anniversary celebration at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, they can take in a new makeover of the classic attraction. The new projection mapping display for the Hollywood Tower Hotel—aka the The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™—brings glitz and glimmer that honors the Golden Age of Hollywood.
EPCOT®: Spaceship Earth
The future looks bright at EPCOT®, as lights shine from within Spaceship Earth’s reflective panels and connect to one another, bringing a galactic glow to nights. The stardust at its core emerges to symbolize optimism and wonder, making one of Disney’s most recognizable landmarks even more eye-catching.
