    what special activities will be included in the 50-year anniversary?

    Am I safe in assuming that you are as excited as I am, Jeff, about The World's Most Magical Celebration? I mean, it's not every day that a 50th anniversary rolls around. And when Walt Disney World throws a celebration, they do it in style. I'm so glad you asked about the festivities!

    This spectacular celebration will begin October 1, 2021 and will last a full eighteen months. The fun will include special decorations in all four theme parks. If you've ever wondered what a "Beacon of Magic" looks like, this will be your chance to find out; the theme park icons are being transformed with lighting you'll have to see to believe. Of course, in honor of the occasion, Mickey and Minnie will be decked out in finery fit for an event entitled, "The World's Most Magical Celebration." 

    I suspect that as the anniversary draws near, we'll learn more about the special offerings that will be part of this celebration. I can only imagine the event-specific snacks and merchandise that will be part of the fun! If you, like me, want to be among the first to know about those announcements, I recommend signing up for updates.

    As you get ready for the occasion, it's a good idea to stay on top of any special offers that might save you some money on your vacation. Have you chosen a resort hotel yet? Disney's Polynesian Village Resort might be the perfect spot, given the new look it will soon be revealing. Also, these tips for vacationing in 2021 might prove useful. 

    I sure hope you get a chance to experience this celebration, Jeff. Happy travels!
