Guests traveling to Walt Disney World for the 50th anniversary celebration will begin feeling the magic as soon as the plane touches down in Orlando.
Orlando International Airport, also referred to as OIA or MCO, will be getting a anniversary-inspired art display that will be located in the terminal train stations.
The display will feature EARidescent light patterns, Disney characters, a photo-op and a re-creation of a Disney ride vehicle to capture special memories as travelers make their way through the airport.
“Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World share a commitment to the Central Florida community. We proudly recognize the outstanding accomplishment of our longtime partner as they celebrate this impressive 50th Anniversary milestone,” said Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “Collaborating on a commemorative presence at Florida’s busiest airport means we get to be the first moment of celebration for guests flying into Orlando to be part of the spectacular fanfare.”
“The World’s Most Magical Celebration” at Walt Disney World is planned to be an 18-month event, starting October 1, 2021.
Disney has also announced the company will also be working with GOAA on a new Magic of Disney store location opening with the South Terminal Complex in 2022.
