    I’m planning on going to Disney for my birthday next year (March) will the 50th celebration still be happening or am I all out of luck?

    Hi Taylor! How exciting that you are visiting the most magical place on earth on your birthday! When you arrive, make sure to ask a Cast Member for a complimentary happy birthday button. You can wear it around the parks and you will be greeted with a cheerful "Happy Birthday!"

    The 50th-anniversary celebration at Walt Disney World is filled with fun activities, yummy treats, and special shows! Unofficially, what I have heard is that the celebration will last 18 months. Given that the anniversary kicked off on October 1, 2021, the anticipated timeframe is that it will run through the end of March 2023. Given that your trip is planned to begin on March 15, it is likely that the 50th-anniversary celebration will still be going on. All four parks have special activities planned for the celebration! 

    When you visit Magic Kingdom, make sure to check out Disney's Enchantment. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, you must see Disney Kite Tails! On your EPCOT day, watch the beautiful nighttime show, Harmonious. Disney's Hollywood Studios is packed with 50th-anniversary activities and food! The glimmer and shimmer blondie at Backlot Express is out of this world! And tour around the park to find the gold statues as part of the "Disney Fab 50 Character Collection"

    Look out for the special 50th-anniversary treats at all four parks and Typhoon Lagoon! My favorite is the ice cream sundae at Friar's Nook! If you like sweets like me, consider booking a reservation for the 50th-anniversary fireworks party at Magic Kingdom!

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
