Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary is here, and guests are packing into a sold-out Magic Kingdom today to celebrate.

The main entrance opened to a capacity crowd just before 6:30am, with guests quickly heading to Cinderella Castle for a welcome moment at 7:55am.

Special merchandise offerings at Storybook Circus were handled by a virtual queue, which quickly reached capacity within an hour of the park opening to guests.

Mickey and Minnie opened the park with a brief new 3.5 minute version of the Magic Kingdom welcome show.

Watch the video below for a quick look at the new welcome show.

Mickey's Celebration Cavalcade is all new at the Magic Kingdom for "The World's Most Magical Celebration."

Seems to depend on if Chapek is in the right mood at the given time.

Do they even play that anymore? We heard none of it last week on the monorail.

In all the different iterations they always kept Jack Wagner's safety warning just listen to the start of these for example.. They can always keep the soundbite no matter what is happening..

Not just a Disney problem, but I suspect a lot of this has to do with global supply chain issues that are really beyond anyone's control...

Is it though? I could see a lot of people upset if they got rid of the iconic voice of the monorails for the 50th.. I mean, how could you have a different voice saying "Please Stand Clear of the Doors, Por favor mantenganse alejado de las puertas" for the 50th anniversary?

Which is what is needed...

That will still require all new narrations on all transportation

We only go once a week...and I have to keep reminding the boys that any toy they don't want needs to remain unopened so I can give it to someone who wants it. I've got Bo Peep, Piglet, BB8 and 2 Dales.

I tried twice to get WDW Happy Meal toys. 2 weeks apart. I got Minions and Scooby Doo in WDW boxes, and now we've only eaten at McDonalds twice in a month instead of a couple times a week like usual, because I've been so annoyed. I probably should eat McDonald's less, so I guess the promotion worked, just in an unintended way.

I've already found a few in some thrift stores...You just have to look carefully for them..

Thanks for the heads up - I've saved a few of the toys for some friends who are collecting and have been waiting for it to end before shipping them.

There will be a lot more merchandise coming...this is only two weeks into a 18 month long promotion. The 50th Merch onslaught is just starting. P.s. - tomorrow ( Oct 18 ) is the last day to purchase any items related to the WDW 50th McDonald's Happy Meal promotion. -
