    We will be visiting Disney World near the end of September. We were hoping that they would start the 50th celebration sooner but looks like it will start October 1st. Do you think they will at least have some merchandise out for the 50th before October?

    Royal greetings, Stephanie and welcome to planDisney! 

    Stephanie, even though we are months away, I'm already so excited about the upcoming anniversary celebrations. I can hardly believe that Magic Kingdom Park will be 50 years old! 

    While there was a recent announcement on the Disney Parks Blog about enhancements at all four theme parks around the Walt Disney World Resort for the anniversary, we haven't yet gotten word about merchandise. Stephanie, I too am very hopeful that you'll see some items prior to that October 1st date. Make sure to keep a close watch on the Disney Parks Blog as pixie dusted announcements (including limited edition merchandise) tend to pop up there first. 

    Stephanie, if for some reason merchandise is not released in time for your trip make sure to visit the shopDisney website frequently when you return home. Experience has taught me that you just never know when special items will be available for sale online. In the past, I have missed out on some park specific items but then found them on shopDisney a few months later. 

    Best wishes Stephanie on your quest for the perfect EARS, sweatshirt or whatever your heart desires. I'll be wishing on a star for you that anniversary merchandise abounds at the end of September. I hope you'll come back and see us here at planDisney with any other questions you might have. 

    We'll see ya real soon!
