And, the celebrations are going strong! We’ve enjoyed a new cavalcade, seen new fireworks, and dined at new restaurants. We have also tried over 100(!!!) 50th anniversary treats around Disney World and seen a TON of special merchandise. But, the fun has only just begun, because this is an 18-month celebration. Even if you can’t make it to Disney any time soon to participate, you can still order some 50th goodies online! And, some new 50th items just dropped on shopDisney that are perfect for the holidays.
Disney World’s 50th anniversary kicked off on Friday, October 1st, and we were in the parks to take in all of the celebrations.
We tried a ton of new food items, saw new entertainment, checked out a new ride, and more! The day was exciting and historic, marking a huge milestone for Disney World — but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have its issues. We noticed some not-so-magical things happening on the 50th anniversary, and we’re here to share our experience and what could be done to fix or avoid these issues in the future.
It’s Disney World’s 50th anniversary, everyone!!!
There is so much going on right now for the celebration, like new food, a new ride, a new character cavalcade, and new merch. While we’ve been focusing a lot on what’s happening inside the theme parks, we’re also checking out the festivities at the Disney hotels. And, we found one of our FAVORITE things at an opening-day resort!
Disney World’s 50th anniversary is THIS FRIDAY!!
Can you believe it’s almost here?! After all of the anticipation, we’re finally going to get to see the new fireworks shows, new character cavalcade, and so much more. And the Cast Members are getting in on the celebration, too — they just got a new festive addition to their uniforms!
Update: The 50th Anniversary MagicBand may be sold out when you go to look for it, though there is a potential that it may be restocked in the future. Be sure to keep checking what MagicBands are available for you to purchase ahead of your trip to see if it becomes available again in the future.
When the 50th Anniversary fun begins, you’ll be able to catch new fireworks in EPCOT and Magic Kingdom, grab specially themed merchandise, hop on the new Ratatouille-themed attraction, and MORE. Now, Disney has made a special 50th Anniversary item available, but only select guests can grab it!
Are you ready for Disney World’s 50th Anniversary? We’re SO excited!
We’ve taken a look at a TON of fun celebrations coming for this massive anniversary like the refurbishment of park icons, NEW fireworks, and a LOT more. Now, Disney has announced that the celebrations will even extend OUTSIDE of Disney World… .
Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary will be here before we know it!
On October 1st, the 18-month celebration will begin and it’s going to be HUGE. Disney has announced new projections on Main Street, U.S.A., a new character cavalcade, and a NEW FIREWORKS SHOW in Magic Kingdom! We’ll also see the opening of long-awaited attractions like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in EPCOT! And, we just found out about another special part of the celebration that will honor some classic Disney characters.
The start of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebrations is just a few months away!
We’ve already gotten some information about what to expect for the 50th (an 18 MONTH long celebration, for starters) and we’ve started to see Cinderella Castle and other places in Disney World preparing for the big annivesary. But today we got even MORE exciting news about what’s in store!
And if you’re planning to be there for the marquee anniversary, you likely already know this isn’t going to be your AVERAGE Disney World vacation. And so, you need to pack accordingly.
