    We want to be there for the 50 th anniversary but can’t make it in October. How long will the 50th anniversary celebration be for? Is it only for that day?Oct 1? We might try and come around Christmas or new year

    Hi there, Darren!

    I'm so excited to hear you're planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort to help Mickey and Minnie celebrate a HUGE milestone anniversary! 

    The World's Most Magical Celebration begins on October 1, 2021 and will be an 18-month event! It's a big anniversary, and that calls for a BIG celebration! All four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks will be getting in on the fun, with thrilling new experiences and celebrations at every turn. The four theme park icons, which include: Cinderella Castle (Magic Kingdom Park), Spaceship Earth (Epcot), The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (Disney's Hollywood Studios), and the Tree of Life (Disney's Animal Kingdom Park) will be lighting up the night with special projection lighting packages - I can't wait to see them! Cinderella Castle has already begun the celebration, with a fabulous new paint job and 50th Anniversary golden bunting all around. She's a beauty!

    You definitely won't be late to the party if you choose to visit during Christmastime, and you'd be surrounded by all the gorgeous holiday decor as well! Now that's something to celebrate! My family visits every year during the holidays - it's such a magical time. From the delicious holiday-themed treats to the GIANT Christmas trees in the theme parks and Disney Resorts Collection hotels - I just can't stay away during the holidays!

    There was recently another big announcement involving October 1st - the opening of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure in the France Pavilion of Epcot's World Showcase! In this all-sizes, all-ages attraction, Guests will "shrink down" to Remy's size and explore the kitchen of Gusteau's Paris restaurant. I'm so excited to check out this new attraction! October 1st can't get here soon enough. 

    I hope you'll soon be planning your visit to Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate the 50th Anniversary - it's going to be amazing!
