Cheshire Cat Joins “Disney Fab 50” Sculptures at Walt Disney World

We are now just two months away from The World’s Most Magical Celebration” honoring Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary! We continue to follow along with all the exciting news flowing out of Disney in preparation for the event, such as the arrival of two new nighttime spectaculars including “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom and “Harmonious” at EPCOT. Disney has even released a recent “sneak peek” at the 50th Anniversary merchandise collection. One experience we’re extremely excited about however is the “Disney Fab 50” sculptures coming to all four Walt Disney World parks. We’ve been following along to see which character will be added next… and now we have it!

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.
