Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary license plate has cleared the pre-order threshold to move into production.

The Florida license plate required 3000 pre-orders before moving into production, which it has now reached after just over a week of being available to pre-order.

The design features the “EARidescent” 50th anniversary castle logo on a royal blue background. Inspired by the color scheme of Cinderella Castle, 100 percent of the proceeds will be benefiting Make-A-Wish of Central and Northern Florida and their work granting wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Interested drivers can purchase a presale voucher now for $25 plus applicable state administration fees exclusively through their local County Tax Collector’s Office, license plate agencies (DMVs) across the State of Florida, or online through the Orange County Tax Collector’s Office at https://www.octaxcol.com/specialty-license-plate-vouchers/.

Honestly this will be my first time having a specialty plate. Never interested me until now lol. So after the 50th, unless a different design does come out, I should be able to switch back to my old plate? As long as it has the correct registration sticker year of course.

Yeah, I hope you’re right.

In Florida, the money goes to the organization. I know the golf plate goes to youth golf foundations/programs around the state.

They want to get rid of Florida Resident APs and have us buy Florida license plates instead? Ok, I'm in. Will the plate get me free parking at least?

Florida goes to the entity on the plate except for costs. The endless summer plate with a surfer goes to care of beaches and oceans for example, the school ones go to the individual school booster programs etc. https://www.flhsmv.gov/motor-vehicles-tags-titles/personalized-specialty-license-plates/financial-oversight-and-reports/

Just FYI: I don't know how Florida does it (every state is different) but in Georgia, such plates just go to the general fund. For example, you buy a "feel good about this thing" plate (now you feel good) - that extra money you pay just goes into the general fund even though you were thinking that the extra money would go to what you're funding. If you think you're helping puppies, you're really just helping your state government. Again, this is how Georgia is. I don't know how Florida is. I'd check into it before getting any sort of specialized plate unless you just like the plate and will pay extra for it.

LOL The front license plate doesn't go on the grill.

Floriduh and a couple of others don't require a front plate to save money. I own a truck that has no provision to put a plate on the front, have to get an aftermarket doohickey or something if I needed it.

Mandatory front licence plates in some states ruin the look of the front grille in some cars.

“The Florida license plate required 3000 pre-orders before moving into production, which it has now reached after just over a week of being available to pre-order.” Just an FYI...While they just released the design last week, it’s been available to pre-order for much longer than a week. I bought our pre-sale voucher in November.

I think it's an issue that most people don't consider stuff like this until it's time to renew. In our case, we got a brand new plate last year so we want to get some use out of it before replacing it. We don't want to contribute more to waste just because it's a fun design, if that makes sense. When it's time, if they have something like this, we definitely would do it.
