Y’all, we can’t get over how much 50th-anniversary news that Disney World just dropped this morning!
We’re talking projections, daytime shows, character cavalcades, character statues, and MORE coming to the parks! But, now we’ve got a little sneak peek at some of the merchandise you’ll be able to find for the momentous occasion this year too.
Disney has revealed FIVE new books that will be coming out this fall in honor of the 50th anniversary! And, along with the combination of information and features about everything available in the parks and beyond, the latest reads will have a bit of an EARidescent touch to them in honor of the event!
A Portrait of Walt Disney World: 50 Years of The Most Magical Place on Earth will remind guests of why Disney World has been so magical over the years with unseen park concept art and photographs. The coffee table book is written by Kevin Kern, Tim O’Day, and Steven Vagnini with other diverse voices who will add the magic of Disney World to your home time and time again. Although the book won’t debut until September 28th, you can still pre-order it online here.
You already know how much we LOVE Disney snacks! While we try to bring you as many Disney Recipes as possible, Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World will give you a sneak peek behind-the-scenes of the park with over 60 recipes! The cookbook will feature appetizers, main courses, desserts, drinks, and beyond straight from the parks.
Authors Marcy Carriker Smothers and Pam Brandon have even collected recipes and stories from the past 50 years, so you can experience dining from 1971 all the way until now. Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World will debut on September 28th exclusively in Disney World and on shopDisney.
We STILL have a whole collection of Disney coloring books at home. And, we love channeling our inner kid at heart by kicking back, relaxing, and doodling away! So, the Art of Coloring: Walt Disney World: 100 Images to Inspire Creativity from The Most Magical Place on Earth is the perfect adult coloring book that all ages will actually love! And, you’ll be able to find it exclusively in Disney World and on shopDisney, starting September 28th.
Since there is going to be a LOT to keep up with over the 50th anniversary’s 18-month run time, you can make sure you have all the details you need to know in one place (other than here at DFB, that is)! Birnbaum’s 2022 Walt Disney World: The Official Vacation Guide will break down everything new coming to the parks for the anniversary with details about attractions, resorts, and more when it debuts in all bookstores on September 21st.
But, you don’t have to be the ONLY ones planning your trip to Disney World! Your kiddos can even chime in using their own Birnbaum’s 2022 Walt Disney World for Kids: The Official Guide. This book will break down the coolest attractions, restaurants, and even a list of dozens of Hidden Mickeys throughout the parks when it makes its way into all bookstores on September 21st.
And, of course, you can stick with us for a full look at all of the 50th anniversary festivities just around the corner! Stay tuned with DFB for the latest Disney entertainment and news you need to know!
