As Walt Disney World celebrates its 50th anniversary, Magic Kingdom is ready to celebrate with golden makeovers, festivities, and more.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Festivities continue at Walt Disney World ahead of Disney World’s 50th anniversary on Friday, and Local 10 News’ Jenise Fernandez is giving you an exclusive first-hand look at the festivities.

Besides Epcot, which held celebrations throughout Wednesday and into the night with a spectacular fire works show, Magic Kingdom is also partaking in the festivities to celebrate Disney’s golden anniversary.

Cinderella Castle is now decked out in gold trim and repainted with a gorgeous, rose gold color in honor of the golden anniversary.

Why the special treatment? Because Magic Kingdom is truly where the magic first began.
