    what special events are there to celebrate Disney World's 50th Anniversary?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jackie! Thanks so much for asking this great question! I'm so excited for you that you have a vacation planned to Walt Disney World Resort in just a few months!

    I'm happy to say there are so many special events happening as part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration! One of my favorite parts of this milestone celebration is Beacons of Magic! You can see these beacons nightly at each of the theme parks when the icons light up with an enchanted EARidescent glow! Also not-to-be-missed are the nighttime spectacular shows, Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park and Harmonious at EPCOT. Both of these fireworks shows were created as part of The World's Most Magical Celebration and I highly recommend them both. Disney KiteTails is another part of the big celebration and happens many times throughout the day at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. This fun show takes place outdoors and will have you singing along as you watch Disney characters soar through the sky!

    In addition to all of this amazing entertainment, you can find the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection which are golden statues throughout the four theme parks! If you love shopping as much as I do, you can pick up some of the 50th Anniversary Celebration Merchandise during your vacation. Food and drinks are a highlight of every Disney vacation for our family and you will definitely want to check out the 50th Anniversary Celebration Sips and Bites Guide! You can find these yummy treats throughout the theme parks, at Disney Resort Hotels, and at Disney Springs

    The 50th Anniversary Celebration also offers some great new restaurants, such as Steakhouse 71 and Space 220. Our family loves to have special meals when we vacation at Disney and it's the perfect way to end a fun day. I would suggest setting a reminder on your calendar for 60 days prior to your check-in date so you can make advanced dining reservations

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Jackie! Please visit planDisney again if we can answer any other questions.

    Happy Planning!
