This year, The Walt Disney Company is celebrating 100 years of storytelling and memories. Of course, the Walt Disney World Resort will be celebrating in many different ways for a limited time! EPCOT is the center of the Disney100 celebration and the festivities will kick off later this year.
Guests will be able to see both Mickey and Minnie in fantastic new platinum outfits to celebrate the occasion. More details will be shared about when and where you can meet them soon.
In addition, one of the coolest thing to come out of the Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary were the special light shows that would take place on Spaceship Earth. This will continue with a new show to celebrate Disney100 later this year. Jason Read, show lighting designer principal for Walt Disney Imagineering stated that during the show, “You may see homages to everything from the ‘Wonderful World of Disney’ television show opening to Mickey balloons that we sell on Main Street, U.S.A.”
