Disney Shares Behind-The-Scenes Look at Fab 50 Character Sculptures

Hi everyone!

With the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World just weeks away (kicking off October 1st, 2021), Walt Disney Imagineering is giving a sneak peek at the creation of the 50 gold sculptures – “Disney Fab 50 Character Collection” – coming to the parks. This is a quick video that shows a little of the creation of the sculptures and a peek at some of them as well.

Ryan March on the Disney Parks Blog says, “Just as Walt Disney World guests will soon search for their favorite character sculptures in the parks, fans have turned the reveal campaign into something of a digital scavenger hunt, tracking down reveal videos on various Disney and celebrity Instagram pages, and saving them to their own personal Instagram Collections. As my younger and considerably cooler colleagues taught me, you do this by tapping and holding the post’s bookmark icon, clicking the “save to” link and then creating or adding to a collection. (Tip: you can find the broad collection of video reveals released thus far by visiting @WaltDisneyWorld on Instagram and checking out the #DisneyWorld50 collection of stories.) ”

In this artist rendering Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are featured as special golden character sculptures in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. They will be joined by 50 characters as part of the “Disney Fab 50,” a new collection of golden sculptures debuting Oct. 1, 2021, across all four Walt Disney World theme parks as part of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” honoring the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort.

We look forward to seeing the sculptures in the parks soon!
