PHOTOS: More 50th Anniversary Decorations Removed From Cinderella Castle

We spotted another bit of bunting gone from one of the spires at Cinderella Castle. Cast Members continue to remove 50th Anniversary decorations one piece at a time. Let’s take a closer look.

“The World’s Most Magical Celebration” drew to a close a the end of March. Since then, the parks have had menu offerings and decorations systematically removed around the Walt Disney World Resort.

Decorations remain in place on the front of Cinderella Castle. We’re guessing they’ll need a crane to remove the golden ribbons from the spire rooftops.

When facing the castle, the bunting has all been removed from the left side, starting at the side of the castle’s entrance.

The 50th Anniversary Celebration medallions are still attached to the Fab 50 Golden Statues installed during the resort’s celebration party. These are interactive, and react to a MagicBand+. If you have the chance, go wave to one while wearing a MagicBand+ to hear a variety of sounds from each of the different statues.

Disney may have wrapped up their 50th Anniversary Celebration, but they have moved on to an even bigger party: the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.

Disney100 Anniversary Celebration

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 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, multiple attractions including 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.
