Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Theme Song Revealed

The new theme song for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World has been released. Disney Parks Blog announced this morning that platinum-selling songwriter and music producer Alana Da Fonseca was tapped to create an original anthem for the 50th Anniversary, collaborating with award-winning composer Emily Bear and singing phenom Journi on “The Magic Is Calling.” Da Fonseca’s pop music style, Bear’s soaring orchestrations and Journi’s magical vocal performance come together to create a song that is all at once nostalgic, inspirational and contemporary.

You can hear the new song in the behind-the-scenes video below:

“It’s such a tremendous honor to write something that celebrates a place that brings so much joy to so many people,” Da Fonseca told Disney Parks Blog. “There’s magic all around us, and when you’re there, you are feeling it at every turn.”

The anthem will be used in across the resort to tie the celebration together. “The Magic Is Calling” will connect to all four parks, as different arrangements of the song will be heard when each Walt Disney World theme park icon transforms into a magnificent Beacon of Magic at night, beckoning all to come and celebrate. Cinderella Castle, Spaceship Earth, Hollywood Tower Hotel and the Tree of Life will each shine like never before and come to life on select nights with their own unique EARidescent glow.
