    We are going to WDW in Sept. 2021 (either 3rd or last weekend). The last weekend covers October 1, 2021, which is the 50th anniversary. Do you think they would have started the celebrations the weekend before or should we go on Oct 1st to be sure?

    Greetings to you, Mark! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for stopping by with your question regarding Walt Disney World's golden anniversary. 

    It's hard to believe that it's been almost 50 years since the opening of the Most Magical Place on Earth! It feels like just yesterday I was strolling down Main Street U.S.A during the 25th anniversary celebration taking in the sight of Cinderella Castle adorned in its birthday finest! Like you, I plan to be in the middle of the magic as the Walt Disney World Resort commemorates fifty fantastic years. 

    Mark, at this point we don't have exact information or dates for festivities surrounding the 50th anniversary celebration. I plan on keeping my eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for these exciting announcements as the event approaches. If you want to secure a reservation for the fall of 2021 as soon as possible, I would suggest booking your stay so that it coincides with the actual anniversary date, October 1, 2021. As more information is released, you may have the option to modify your reservation to a date that may be more desirable to you. Be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog and Walt Disney World on social media to keep up with all of the latest developments. 

    I wish I could tell you more about what the future holds, but I know that no matter when you decide to travel, 2021 will be a memorable time to visit the Disney Parks. If there is anything else we can do to help make your vacation dreams come true, please come back and see us again. We love to talk about everything from resort options to special seasonal events

    Hope to see ya real soon!
