    I couldn't find another thread for this, so I apologize if this is duplicated somewhere.

    With the 50th of WDW coming in 2021 there are a number of new attractions on the way as well as some other things.

    We know Tron for MK, GotG for EPCOT. I would guess there will be something new coming for the other two parks as well.

    On top of that they'll have several new hotels opening in time for the celebration.

    Today I was told Cinderella Castle is slated to get a new, special paint (or overlay) for the golden anniversary. I didn't get any details, but I'd assume this will be much more tasteful than the 25th cake castle.

    Has anyone else heard of other things on tap for the 50th? I'd guess a new night time parade is in the planning, along with other shows...

    A 50th fireworks show is definitely happening and nighttime parade have been on an off for MK. Although I have heard that the fireworks may just be a reworked HEA since it’s been so well received.

    Changed the title to WDW 50th Rumors so we can then transition to a WDW 50th Official thread when announced.

    I will punch you.

    I’m pretty sure I made one of these a few years back, but either way I hope the 50th is as lit as Disneyland's 60th.

    I would truly appreciate them doing a similarly scaled event!!!

    So a poster on Magic is saying we wont be getting a new night time parade at MK for the 50th, with a refurbished Main street Electrical Parade being sent over instead. While i love the Main street Electrical Parade I think its time to put it to rest. Thoughts?

    Not a problem. Sounds like budget cuts for the 50th lol

    Unfortunately. Which surprises me considering that back in 2005 Disneyland's 50th Celebration made the company a ton of money and drove attendance to record highs at Disneyland.

    Sounds to me like they’re hoping for the same thing at WDW, except this time without spending $ so they can make up for the loss on SWGE.

    I wouldn’t jump to that conclusion. A new Electrical Parade was never a guarantee for the 50th. They would’ve announced it at D23 I’d think if it was happening.

    Disneyland's 50th was a slap-dash affair after the Pressler crew was quickly ushered out and Ouimet was installed. He spear headed a lot of the additions and changes he could afford/get approved and done by opening.

    The best thing Disney could do is drop the magic band. Just go back to the old system, that would bring me to the 50th...

    Not gonna happen. Magic Band is not bad, it just has its issues that Disney has yet to fix.

    At this point I'm expecting the castle to get spray painted Briar Rose Gold™ with Arendelle Aqua™ accents so they can sell more crappy merchandise to bored housewives.
