    How long is the 50th Anniversary? I know it starts October 1.

    ChEARs Tarasha!

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m delighted to see you stopped by with a question for us. 

    As you know, beginning October 1st, The Most Magical Place on Earth will be having The World’s Most Magical Celebration in honor of the 50th Anniversary, and guess what? You’re invited to the ball!

    Tarasha, Walt Disney World Resort knows how to party. This magical celebration will be an 18-month-long event, giving Guests lots of time to come and experience the enchantment of it all! 

    There’s so much to get excited about. During the 18-month-long celebration, the new nighttime spectacular, “Disney Enchantment,” will debut! I’m ecstatic about the immersive effects that will extend from Cinderella Castle all the way down to Main Street, U.S.A.! Can you imagine how magical it’ll be? And Magic Kingdom Park won’t be the only theme park celebrating; you’ll find Harmonious, said to be one of the largest nighttime spectaculars at the parks, to debut starting October 1st at EPCOT! I know this one will make me cry tears of joy, as EPCOT is my very favorite theme park. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park will also offer daytime entertainment called “Disney KiteTails,” which will have wind catchers and kites flying in the sky! You may see some familiar pals, like Simba and Baloo depicted! And I can’t wait to see our favorite pals dressed in their EARidescent best for the 50th anniversary. 

    When you decide to come during the celebration, do be sure to make your Disney Park Pass reservations, Tarasha. These are required, along with your tickets, to enter the theme parks. 

    We can’t wait to welcome you to the celebration! Have an enchanting time.
