Let the sculpture count continue! As Walt Disney World is gearing up for their 50th Anniversary celebration, properly titled, “The World’s Most Magical Celebration“, it seems like October 1 will never get here! We are however loving the little bits of news Disney keeps adding to the excitement. Whether you’re simply waiting to experience the new nighttime spectacular coming to Magic Kingdom called “Disney Enchantment”, the new spectacular coming to EPCOT called “Harmonious”, or want to snag all the 50th merchandise you can… we can’t help but be thrilled to check out the Disney Fab 50 sculptures that will be available throughout Walt Disney World’s four theme parks.

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.
