    I am thinking of booking a trip to Walt Disney World this year. Are they planning anything special for the 40 year anniversary in October?

    Hello Michelle!
         I am so excited for the 40th Anniversary of Walt Disney World like you are!  As of today, 1/3/2011, no October 40th Anniversary Celebration has been announced yet, but that doesn't necessarily mean that no special celebration will occur in October in Walt Disney World.  I would keep a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any breaking announcements on upcoming events (go to for great news, information, and announcements).

         I would also like to mention that there is a Walt Disney World 40th Anniversary Celebration Event that is happening in May 2011.  D23 (the Official Disney Fan Club) is throwing a Walt Disney World 40th Anniversary Celebration Event on May 14th and 15th, 2011.  To find out more information about Destination D in Walt Disney World go to

         If you are not a D23 Member, you can become one by paying a nominal yearly fee. D23 Membership provides you access to all kinds of special events and an incredible quarterly magazine about Disney.  I am a D23 Member and I love everything about this Disney Fan Club!

    I hope to join you and all the people celebrating the 40 years of all the magic and memories that Walt Disney World has given millions of kids and adults alike!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
