Walt Disney World in Florida turns 50 in October. To help celebrate, Mickey and Minnie will be wearing flashier threads and iconic structures such as the Cinderella Castle and the golf-ball-like Spaceship Earth are getting new lighting. Disney officials on Friday unveiled the first details of how Disney World will celebrate its milestone anniversary.
A special honor was held Monday for an iconic Jersey Shore attraction. Margate renamed the beach block of Decatur Avenue to Lucy Plaza, marking the 50th anniversary of Lucy the Elephant’s historic two block move that saved the 6-story high attraction from a wrecking ball. NBC10’s Ted Greenberg was there.
