Magic Kingdom Main Street U.S.A. Train Station 50th anniversary banner
Posted: Thursday September 2, 2021 12:48pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Guests arriving at the Magic Kingdom are now greeted with a brand new 50th anniversary banner in front of the train station at the main entrance.

Keeping with the blue and gold color scheme of Cinderella Castle, the banner makes for a great photo op before entering the park.

Nobody leaked it, so they figured nobody was excited for it and cancelled it 😂

My family has been trying to put together a somewhat last minute trip for the 50th. We're looking at going in November and currently have a few nights locked up at Bay Lake. Although November and December availability is slim I'm blown away by how many nights are available at so many different resorts in October. Similarly for our spring trip in April of next year there just seems to be an endless amount of availability at almost every single resort less than 7 months out, which I've never seen in the past. Having near full months of availability at DVC resorts four, five and six months out has got to be worrying to Disney. As I said I've been a member for a while and I've never seen it that available before.

All I ask is that they test any banners they may be planning to unfurl in advance.

The stage does give me hope that there will be more than just a 5 minute "hey, it's been 50 years", but who knows.

Also was it a Oct 1 only or is it a MK offering that's just delayed? Sorry Steve!

Was it parade related?

I don't even know what it was and I'm disappointed. 😂

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but It looks like the most significant of the surprises I had previously referred to is not going to happen now. Not sure I will get any further clarification, so currently I would set expectations low.

So Steve's insight isn't FOF, Too Bad. Is it even Entertainment related Steve????????

This platform is temporary. The anchors for the permanent platforms and arches are in place underneath it. They could still come back.

So the stage arches aren't coming back?
