    Hello, we have plans to visit Hollywood Studios on May 1st, 2024, which we've found out is the 35th Anniversary of the opening of the park. Are there any plans to celebrate the anniversary on that day? Special events, merchandise, etc? Thanks!

    Welcome, Jim!

    Thank you for visiting planDisney! We are happy to hear from you and hope you are having a fabulous time planning your practically perfect visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Wow, I can't believe it has been 35 years since Disney's Hollywood Studios, then MGM-Studios Theme Park, first opened its gates back on May 1st, 1989. Like you, I have been curious to see if there are any events planned for the day. While I haven't been able to find any official announcements thus far, I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the news we are both hoping for. They are my go-to for Disney news especially when it comes to park celebrations or events.

    In the meantime, I can suggest a couple of other fun experiences to check out during your visit. The EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be taking place and is a not to miss event. From food, music, activities, special merchandise and more, there is so much to enjoy about this festival. If Disney's Hollywood Studios is your focus, I suggest the Fantasmic! Dining Package for a great evening. There are five participating locations ( I love the Hollywood Brown Derby) for a delicious meal and then you'll have a reserved space in the VIP seating area for Fantasmic!

    Enjoy your vacation, Jim. If there is anything else we are able to assist you with, please let us know. I have my fingers crossed they'll have something special planned to celebrate during your trip.

    Magical Wishes,
