    My Mom and I have a Walt Disney World trip planned for mid Sept 2021. Will any of the 50th Anniversary Celebration be visible? Or are we too early? Just debating rescheduling our trip or if we should try squeeze in another one next year. Thank you!

    Hiya, Rachel and welcome to planDisney! 

    Rachel, it's hard for me to imagine that it was almost 50 years ago that guests got their first glimpse of Cinderella Castle, took their first tour from the Ghost Host over at The Haunted Mansion and first realized that "it's a small world" will stay with you long after the cruise is over. Just talking about this history has me so excited to celebrate the golden anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort and from your question it sounds like you are as well! 

    Rachel, officially the 18-month long festivities will kick off on October 1, 2021. We haven't yet heard whether any sneak previews might be available earlier in September, but I recommend keeping a close watch on the Disney Parks Blog as announcements will pop up there first. Rachel, as you're deciding if you can squeeze in another trip, I encourage you to read all you can about what has already been planned HERE. From the EARidescent Excitement to the Beacons of Magic, I think we can all expect to be smiling wider than Mickey Mouse when he's with his sweetheart, Minnie. 

    Rachel, I hope you'll come back and see us here at planDisney with any other questions you might have. Best wishes for a wonderful trip in September. 

    We'll see ya real soon!
