Disney World 50th Anniversary

Disney fans are already thinking ahead to Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, even though they have no idea what kind of celebration will be in store for them.

Disney Park Pass reservations for October 1, 2021, are being claimed, and Disney Resort hotel reservations are being made. No matter how much of the pre-pandemic plans for the 50th anniversary come to fruition by the time next October rolls around, Disney die-hards will be on hand to wish the Most Magical Place on Earth the most magical 50th anniversary. And you can be there, too!

Back in mid-October, we at Inside the Magic learned that the Walt Disney World Resort had finally allowed its would-be Guests to make Resort Hotel reservations beyond September 2021, and many of us jumped to claim our spot in our favorite Disney hotel for the special day.

On the same day as the hotel reservation extension, we learned that the Park Pass reservation system was extended as far as 2022. As of today, November 13, it appears that Annual Passholders have completely depleted their “bucket” of Park Pass reservations at the Magic Kingdom for its 50th birthday, October 1, 2021.

But do not be discouraged. There is still time for you to begin planning and scheduling your trip and reserving your spot in the Magic Kingdom on October 1, 2021.

There are still plenty of rooms available in Disney Resort Hotels, and Park Passes for Disney Resort Guests and theme park ticket holders are still available. Remember also that it is not uncommon for Disney World to increase the number of Park Passes available after certain buckets on certain days have become depleted. We will update our readers once more park passes become available.

EPCOT’s anniversary is also on October 1, and Disney officials have already confirmed that this will be a Walt Disney World anniversary celebration with all four theme parks taking part. So even if it comes down to the day and you find yourself without a pass to the Magic Kingdom, there will likely still be plenty of celebrating to be had at EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
