It was an exciting morning for us in EPCOT today — we were greeted with a wall of brand new park maps! We’ve been discovering new maps at several of the Disney parks, but now it’s EPCOT’s time to shine. Time for a map reveal!
We are having a BLAST exploring Disney World’s 50th Anniversary today!
Disney World is abuzz today as the 18-month anniversary celebrations kick off in all four parks. We’ve seen new entertainment, crowds, and (you know it) new EATS. We’ve also found that each of the parks has its own little change that helps to bring the birthday magic — a new park map!
Can you believe it?! It’s officially Disney World’s 50th anniversary!
To help kick off the 18-month celebration, Disney World has released a 1971 merchandise collection and there are 150 snacks (Yes, you read that right.) coming to the parks! Now, we found a new Magic Kingdom map that has been released to help guests navigate all of the 50th anniversary happenings.
Technology can be your best friend while trying to navigate the Disney World theme parks.
The My Disney Experience app lets you check out wait times, see ride closures, see showtimes, make dining reservations, and mobile order! And while the app does have a map of the parks, sometimes you just need a paper map in your hands! There’s good news for those of you who love having an actual map, because the map of Magic Kingdom has just been updated!
As things change in Disney World, so do other parts of the park or things you can find there including the park maps!
Lately we’ve seen new park maps popping up throughout Disney World. We’ve already spotted new maps at both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. Now it looks like Disney’s Animal Kingdom has gotten in on the action.
With social distancing and other safety measures in place right now throughout Disney World, navigating the parks can be quite the challenge.
Some stores, restaurants, and other areas now have certain doors designated as entrances or exits (which might be different than how you’re used to seeing things). You may find that certain doors are blocked off or unavailable. And some ride lines may stretch FAR away from their designated ride entrance, making it difficult sometimes to know where the line starts and what a line is even for.
We’re in the parks every single day and we know just how frustrating all of this can become. That’s why we developed some totally FREE resources to help you navigate all 4 Disney World theme parks. We’ve shared them all individually before but now we’re linking to them all in one place to make it super easy for you!
Walt Disney World recently got a few enhancements!
Cinderella Castle has been updated with a fresh coat of rose gold and deep royal blue turrets. The new paint job is in honor of the Magic Kingdom’s 50th anniversary next year. The park also has a fresh new walkway that connects guests staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian to the Magic Kingdom. Both enhancements are now reflected on the Disney World app and website!
