Bunting was previously all around the castle, on towers and walls.

The 50th anniversary decorations also included a giant “50” medallion over the clock of Cinderella Castle. This was the first piece of decoration removed after the 50th anniversary celebration ended.

Crews will need a crane to remove the golden ribbons from the turrets — and one has already arrived.

Disney may have wrapped up “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” but they have moved on to an even bigger party: the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.

Across almost all six resorts and on a global scale, Disney is celebrating “100 Years of Wonder.” This celebration is the largest event ever thrown by The Walt Disney Company. The heart of the celebration takes place at Disneyland Resort, as it is “The Place Where it All Began.”

The party kicked off on January 27, 2023, and is expected to last through July 2024.

At Walt Disney World, Disney100 will mostly be celebrated at EPCOT with Mickey and Minnie in their new platinum outfits. A new Spectacle of Light will debut on Spaceship Earth, and in late 2023, a new Disney100 nighttime spectacular will replace EPCOT Forever. This show was brought back after the end of Harmonious in early April but has only returned as an interim replacement

In addition, Journey of Water, CommuniCore Hall and Plaza, World Celebration Garden, and Dreamers Point featuring the “Dreamer” statue of Walt Disney are all scheduled to open in late 2023 at EPCOT.
