During the magical celebration, which begins on Oct. 1, you’ll be able to find these golden character sculptures throughout all four of the Resort’s parks. And leading up to their appearances, friends from around the Disney company will be announcing which characters you can expect to see – starting today with Bret Iwan, the voice of Mickey Mouse.
Recently we shared this on the blog that 50 fabulous Disney characters will be cast in gold and displayed across the theme parks. Now, we have more details on the “Disney Fab 50” series, including a special reveal of the first sculpture – Mickey Mouse!, thanks to Thomas Smith at Disney Parks Blog.
As mentioned previously here, the Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse sculptures are being dedicated to Disney cast members of the past, present and future. After all, cast members – along with Mickey and Minnie- are truly considered the heart of the upcoming anniversary celebration.
Now, not sure what your guess was on which character would be first, but sure that many of you said The Boss himself. Mickey is the first, and other character sculptures will be announced in the upcoming weeks by Disney friends, including Walt Disney World, Disney+, Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios, D23, Disney Channel, NatGeoTV, Disney Vacation Club and more.
You can also virtually “collect” each golden Disney character sculpture on Instagram. To add a sculpture to Instagram Collections, just tap and hold the bookmark icon. Then, on the “Save to” screen, tap the collection where you want to save the image or create a new collection. Let’s see how many the Mayne Mafia can collect. Happy hunting!
