    Since this is the 40th anniversary year for the opening of Magic Kingdom, are there any special activities, entertainment, prizes, or celebrations planned for the year at the MK or the other Parks?

    Hi there Dennis,
    You, like all of us Disney fans, are waiting with baited breath to hear what is in store.  To date, there have been no official announcements about the 40th Anniversary of the opening of the Magic Kingdom. 

    There have been some 40th anniversary -related announcements made, but no special events or entertainment have been announced for that weekend.  Keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog as they often have breaking news about what is coming up.  Check out this link, which is a recent Disney Parks Blog entry that is full of fun and nostalgia about the 1971 opening.  Special anniversary merchandise has been announced, too.

    Generally, plans and calendars are announced a minimum of six months in advance...which would be April first.  So if there is to be some announcements, I would hope we see them soon.

    Dennis, stay tuned!
