We’re going to have to quote Mickey Mouse and say “Oh, boy!” when it comes to all the Disney news that came out this week!
So we’re going to break down the biggest stories that dropped this week — but hold on to your hats because here’s everything you need to know to stay updated on everything about Disney Parks and more!
Disney World 50th Anniversary
So we got a TON of new announcements about Disney World’s 50th anniversary. And there are a lot of exciting things coming to the big celebration. Magic Kingdom is getting a new fireworks show that will include new projections that will light up Cinderella Castle and Main Street, U.S.A.
There will be a new Character Cavalcade featuring Mickey, Minnie, and all their friends, and everyone will be decked out in brand new outfits. And 50 New Gold Statues representing Disney’s most iconic characters will be spread throughout all four parks.
Boo Bash Ticket Restock
This year’s Halloween event at Disney World, the After Hours Boo Bash, ran out of tickets for certain days really fast. But if you didn’t manage to get tickets on the date you wanted, you’re in luck — many tickets have been restocked for the event.
We would recommend checking ASAP, though, because these will likely sell out soon, too.
October 1st is also the first day of Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration, so that day — and night — are going to be huge.
New PhotoPass Policy
When Disney World reopened last year, PhotoPass photographers could no longer take photos with guests’ phones for health and safety reasons. But that policy has been changed and now you can once more hand your phone to photographers so they can snap a quick photo with it for you.
This is just one of many policy changes currently happening at Disney World.
Cast Member Mask Policy Updates
Another Cast Member policy change has come to Disney World’s face coverings guidelines. This week, Disney World announced that fully vaccinated Cast Members are no longer required to wear masks when working outdoors.
This policy changed again a few days later — now, fully vaccinated Cast Members no longer have to wear masks indoors, too.
See? That’s a lot of news just for one week — so much is changing right now. But we’re keeping up with every update, so keep checking back with us for all the latest.
