JUST IN: Check out these perks for Guests staying at a Disney hotel as the 50th Anniversary Celebration kicks off!

We are literally in the final days before Walt Disney World finally kicks off “The World’s Most Magical Celebration!”

October 1 is right around the corner, and if you’ve been on the proverbial fence about joining the party, we’ve got some news that might just help you fall over the fence to the other side!

Disney has just announced new perks–extra Magic and Pixie Dust for Guests who stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel as the 50th-anniversary celebration gets started.

Beginning in early October, Guests staying in a Disney Resort hotel will get to experience the Magic earlier in the morning with early entry into the theme parks.

That means that you and your traveling party will get the chance to experience some of the parks’ most popular attractions before the parks get too crowded and before it gets too warm outside. (It also means a better chance for some amazing photo ops, minus all the strangers in the background that you don’t even know.)

If you and your family are staying at a Disney Deluxe or Disney Deluxe Villa Resort hotel, you can also enjoy extra Magic at the end of the day with extended hours in selected theme parks and on selected evenings, and those perks are exclusively for Guests of these select resort hotels:


Deluxe Villas:

But there’s more Magic to come!

Guests of Disney’s Resort hotels during this time will also get to experience some really memorable moments with special appearances from your best Disney pals, and each one will be dressed to the nines in his or her EARidescent best!

Even Cast Members will be in on some of the special surprises and magical memories!

If you’ve ever wanted to stay on property, now’s the time to do it–a once-in-a-lifetime anniversary celebration, magic and memories around every corner, beautifully crafted bronze statues of your favorite Disney characters (can you get a selfie with each one?), and extra perks on property.

Let’s go to Disney World!


About Becky Burkett

I'm a Lone Star State native whose idea of joy includes any combination of the following: cold weather, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 2 boys, my 2 girls, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history and being at Disney World. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birds at the Enchanted Tiki Room, scoring the 999,999 at Buzz's Space Ranger Spin, or trying for the highest score in the toybox at Toy Story Mania! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
