    Will the 50th Anniversary celebration last through all of 2021? Planning a 2021 Christmas trip but would also like to participate in the 50th Anniversary. We were there for the 25th Anniversary (and many times since),so this is a tradition for our family

    Hi Pamela,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm excited to hear that you're planning your next visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. My husband's first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort was during the 25th Anniversary celebration. I hope you have a photo of your family in front of Cinderella Castle decorated like a fabulous birthday cake! I've heard a lot of jokes about the "birthday cake castle" but it's certainly something we all remember! I was also fortunate enough to visit Magic Kingdom Park during its opening year. I was young but I clearly remember our stay at Disney's Contemporary Resort, riding on the Monorail, and seeing the beauty of Cinderella Castle for the first time. I cannot believe it's been almost 50 years!

    We don't have a lot of details yet about The World's Most Magical Celebration coming to the Walt Disney World Resort in the fall of 2021 but I'm sure it's going to be a grand celebration. In the past, celebrations have lasted several months in which case they would still be celebrating the 50th Anniversary when you plan to visit in December of 2021. However, until announcements are made there is just no way to be certain. 

    My best advice for you is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for updates on the celebration. The folks at the Blog do a fantastic job in getting the latest, most accurate information out to everyone. I check the Disney Parks Blog daily to see what's happening in Disney Parks around the world. 

    Pamela, thank you for visiting us with your question. If you have any further questions, you know right where to find us. We're always here to help!
    Wishing you happy planning and a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
