Of course, the 50th Anniversary isn’t just a one-day party. Disney World is commemorating this historic milestone for 18-months, which means the odds are high that your next trip will take place during this celebration! If that’s the case, keep on reading so you can learn how to make the most of your 50th Anniversary Celebration vacation!
We forget this sometimes after neverending planning, budgeting, and preparing but going to Disney World is meant to be a VACATION. It is a destination meant to leave us relaxed, invigorated, and an escape from the pressure of the everyday. But, as we know, it can also be a little stressful at times!
Sure, there are things that happen that are out of our control (like bad weather or ride closures), there are things we can plan for, like days when we know the parks might be crowded, during a season with notoriously bad weather, or days when park pass reservations are full. But here’s the thing: there’s a reason that these days are stressful.
Disney World’s eighteen-month-long 50th Anniversary Celebration is off and running, and we’ve been covering all of the newest entertainment, merchandise, and, of course, food! From now until April 2023, the parks and resorts will be commemorating this historic milestone celebration with limited-time offerings you don’t want to miss!
If you’re heading to Disney World the week of October 10th, there will be plenty of new things to see and do. In order to make the most of your upcoming vacation, you’ll want to make sure you review the latest park hours and Park Pass Reservation information, especially considering the week of the 10th starts off with a holiday weekend for many guests!
Hello from Disney World, where we’re celebrating the start of the resort’s 18-month-long 50th Anniversary Celebration 🎉!

Select Park Pass reservations have been sold out or filling up for the dates around October 1st (the start of the 50th celebrations), but now things are looking better!
Are you as excited as we are for the start of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration? We’re only a few weeks away from October 1st, and we’re looking forward to all of the new entertainment, merchandise, and of course, food!

UPDATE: We’ve received several messages from readers that this Park Pass Reservation problem has been resolved. You should be able to upgrade tickets without losing Park Pass Reservations you’ve already booked.
Yesterday (September 8th) Disney World Annual Passes became available for purchase once again, under Disney’s new Annual Pass program.
One of the things you’re now able to do (if you want to) is upgrade your regular park tickets to an Annual Pass. By upgrading, you can apply the entire price you paid for your tickets into a select Annual Pass. But, before you do so, there’s a BIG thing you need to know about when it comes to Park Passes.
We’ve already looked at the pros and cons of this new annual pass system, what you’ll have to pay extra for with it, and everything that’s missing from the new program. We’ve also seen all the blockout dates for the new annual pass, but these are also available with Disney’s new Annual Passholder calendar, which is available now through the My Disney Experience app. Let’s take a look!
