Anniversaries are special. They are a time when people come together to celebrate a joyous event. Beginning October 1st , everyone is invited to “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” as the Walt Disney World Resort celebrates their 50th anniversary. They are busy preparing for this 18-month celebration and have just announced some special benefits coming to the Disney Resorts Collection.

Early theme park entry. Those staying at Disney Resort hotels and other select hotels will be allowed early entry into the theme parks to enjoy select attractions at EVERY theme park EVERY day. They will also be among the first each day to see the special EARidescent decorations in the parks and embellishment on Cinderella Castle.

Extended evening hours. Guests staying at a Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Disney Resort hotel will also have the opportunity to enjoy extended evening hours on select nights at select parks. (There are specific regulations and requirements for both morning and evening extended hours. I can help you with these.)

More magic at the hotels. (Is that even possible?) Be on the lookout for surprise appearances by your favorite characters. A special celebration calls for special attire and they can’t wait to show off their EARidescent best!

Other services. Disney Resort hotel guests will be offered complimentary on-site transportation and direct-to-room service available in the My Disney Experience app. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Contemporary Resort are undergoing refurbishment and their reimagined rooms are sure to delight. There are plans in the works to bring back the Disney dining plan, but a start date has not yet been decided.
