An Aladdin Character Makes It Into the “Disney Fab 50”

Can you believe it? We are less than 50 days away from what all of us Disney fans have been waiting for, for what seems like forever! Our Disney Resort rooms are booked, our Park pass reservations are made, and we are looking forward to experiencing “The World’s Most Magical Celebration“ at Walt Disney World. Disney is preparing to celebrate 50 years of magic-making during their 18-month long celebration beginning October 1. No plans to visit Disney just yet? No worries! With the length of Disney’s celebration, we hope you plan to come to visit Mickey soon enough! Disney keeps counting down the days with us which means the countdown for the “Disney Fab 50” sculptures is well underway. Sure, the focus may be on the two new nighttime spectaculars including “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom and “Harmonious” at EPCOT that are making their debut, but we can’t help eagerly await the chance to experience Disney Fab 50 sculptures that will be available throughout Walt Disney World’s four theme parks. Several favorite Disney characters have been revealed so far, and now Disney has revealed the latest character to add to the list… a favorite Aladdin character!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
