The celebration of the 50th anniversary of Disney World begins this week and many partner companies are participating in the festivities. We’ve been covering some of the Happy Meal Toys you can pick up at McDonalds, not to mention every Disney World vacation McDonalds gives away.
Today we visited Southwests Airlines in Dallas, Texas, where they are ALSO celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. On the occasion of this golden anniversary, Southwest is giving away a trip to Disney World.
They had the “blue carpet” for the event when we arrived.
We listened to several representatives from Southwest Airlines and Disney, and they gave us special performances in celebration of the 50th anniversary.
And YES, there were extra special surprise guests. Mickey …
… and Minnie were there!
The Boeing 737-700 that was wrapped up for the 50th anniversary was revealed to us during the presentation. Southwest Airlines released a video showing how the design of its Boeing 737-700 came to life:
Meet the new magic livery of our fleet! This Boeing 737-700 aircraft is a long-haul tribute to 50 years of both the Southwest and the Southwest @WaltDisneyWorld Resort that connects people with magic and the most important moments. # Southwest 50 # DisneyWorld50 (1/2) pic.twitter.com/l2a3qVazGq

The plane is covered from nose to tail with Disney characters and icons from all over Disney World. Can you spot them all?
Take a good look and you’ll see Disney World locations like City Hall.
Then we headed inside the plane, yes, the design is still inside.
The characters are in the shutters of the windows and in the luggage compartments.
Window tones are where you’ll find iconic characters from movies and theme parks like Madame Leota, Edna Mode and Figment.
That’s not all! Southwest today announced a new raffle in which a winner and a maximum of three guests will receive a unique opportunity in life to visit Disney World during its 50th anniversary celebration. Go to south.com.com/50days to log in from November 16th.
