Things are constantly changing in Disney World! Just over the past two years, we’ve seen A LOT of changes, including a huge ongoing EPCOT transformation that has already seen the opening of two new rides (Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind)!
We’re right in the middle of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration!
There are tons of 50th Anniversary offerings in the parks right now, especially when it comes to merchandise! We’ve seen all kinds of 50th Anniversary collections in the parks, from shoes to bags and FREE souvenirs. One of the most unique collections has been the Vault Collection, which is inspired by Disney World’s opening day in the 70’s! We spotted a super cool 50th Anniversary Vault collectible in Magic Kingdom recently that fans of the olden days of Disney World HAVE to see!
Buckle up, folks. Disney decided to choose this week to keep surprising us! OVER AND OVER.
Pretty much every day this week had at least one surprise. From ride testing to restaurant news to a permanent dinner show closure, we’re feeling the unexpected vibe this week. So come along as we recap everything you might not know!
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!
Welcome back to another What’s New at Magic Kingdom!
While in the park yesterday, we noticed more Rivers of America progress, found some exciting new merchandise, and even spotted a new park map! Let’s dive right in.
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!
