“Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World share a commitment to the Central Florida community. We proudly recognize the outstanding accomplishment of our longtime partner as they celebrate this impressive 50th anniversary milestone,” said Phil Brown, chief executive officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “Collaborating on a commemorative presence at Florida’s busiest airport means we get to be the first moment of celebration for guests flying into Orlando to be part of the spectacular fanfare.”

Disney created a similar display at the airport before the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy‘s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019.

Orlando International Airport is currently in the process of constructing a new South Complex Terminal. It’s expected to open in 2022.
