Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary Plans

I can't be the only who likes ride vehicle merchandise or attraction specific stuff. I hope they bring things like Country Bear or Jungle Cruise figures or boats or even Space Mountain rockets for the 50th. Remember the attraction vehicle set from a few years ago that had Splash and Space Mountain cars? That would be cool for the 50th!!

I'm not a ride vehicle person except for pins, I love the Kingdom of Cute lol I have the Jungle Cruise boat and Dumbo =) But I do love attraction specific merch!

Hopefully Disney will release a more accurate Cinderella Castle model/toy in honor of 50th. I think the monorail castle accessory has been pulled from shopDisney now. Not sure if its still available in the parks though. But it wasn't really an accurate representation of the castle. The other resin model of the castle hasn't been available for years which was way more accurate in its rendering.

I was told awhile ago that yes, MK will be getting a new electrical parade. The leader I talked to said, "I hope it's not Paint the Night," but they said it in such a way that led me to believe that it's probably going to be Paint the Night. (YMMV)The MSEP wasn't supposed to last this long - it was supposed to be "retired" again about three/four years ago, but because of what happened to SpectroMagic, MSEP had to stick around longer than anticipated. Frankly, speaking only for myself, I'll be glad to see MSEP go. Some of the floats are so old most guests have no idea what it is (Pete and Elliot being the biggest example, IMHO).
interesting fact: Pete's Dragon originally was only supposed to be a Temporary addition to the MSEP but ended up sticking around. IU'm surprised the float lasted as long as it duds considering upon it's last run in 2017 at Disneyland it was 40 years old.

We’ve heard there’s plans for a while but there hasn’t been any major enhancement to any of MK’s attractions recently. No Hatbox Ghost, lift hill explosions, Peter Pan improvements, nothing. The clock is ticking.
It is ticking.... and truly I do not think those in charge are feeling the need to do any of it. They have so much that they are adding now to the parks, plussing what they already have I think fell into the bucket of: nice to have, but not needed. :( sigh. Its not that its a wrong decision, but it is a corporate one. I hope I am wrong. I think night parade fell into the same bucket. Figures crossed my assumptions are wrong.

The 50th is still nearly 2.5 years away. Plenty of time for those types of enhancements. Especially since it’s not as though they haven’t already started.

Plenty of time? hehehehe. We are talking about the same company? How long did it take to build __________ at Walt Disney World? ;) (But your examples are plusses, not new builds so hopefully your optimism is correct!!!!)

I recently got the chance to go to Disneyland Paris, and their versions of classic rides are so much more charming/thrilling than our versions back in Disney World. It's a Small World is spectacular, Space Mountain has a loop, and Pirates is much longer to name a few. Is there a chance that we might get updates to these classic rides for the 50th?

I mean I'm ignorant... but I would doubt all that unfortunately. I guess anything is possible but upgrading to that extent is unlikely imo.
