Why Next Year is the Best Time to Celebrate Disney World’s Anniversary

As you may have heard by now, the grand 50th Anniversary celebration is underway at Walt Disney World! It brough new fireworks, character costumes, attractions, dining, and much more! 

Happy Anniversary, Disney World!

With so many exciting changes already in place and promised throughout the 18-month-long celebration, you might be itching to head down to Disney World as soon as possible, but you might want to wait until 2022!

You Have TIME

The 50th Anniversary started on October 1st and runs all the way through April 1st, 2023 — that’s an 18-month-long celebration! 

Did you notice the new 50th Anniversary gold paint on the clock?

This is a LONG party, and the upcoming changes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon! You have plenty of time to check out ALL the new stuff around Disney World, and you will likely face smaller crowds if you wait a few months. 

Upcoming Attractions

TRON Lightcycle Run

Tomorrowland has a new rollercoaster coming soon…hopefully. The new TRON Lightcycle Run attraction has been in the works for a preeetty long time, and it was originally supposed to be complete for October 1st. Disney… did not make that deadline. 

It’s very much a work in progress

Based on what guests can see from the exterior, we’re hoping the roller coaster will be ready in 2022. We’re keeping our eyes out for any news on the future of TRON, so be sure to stay tuned for updates!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

Magic Kingdom isn’t the only park getting a new rollercoaster, though! In EPCOT, an innovative new Guardians of the Galaxy rollercoaster is in the works called Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

EPCOT is undergoing a HUGE transformation right now, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a major part of the new vision! 

Just like the TRON attraction, Cosmic Rewind did not make the October 1 deadline. UNLIKE TRON, Disney has promised Cosmic Rewind will rock on in 2022!

We’re hoping this will be ready soon!

If you love thrill rides and hate construction, hold off on visiting EPCOT for now!

Why Are There More Dark Rides Than Roller Coasters at Walt Disney World?

New Resort

Looking to take a luxury cruise in space? A brand new, totally immersive hotel experience is opening in 2022 called the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.

The Starcruiser hotel isn’t going to be like any other hotel in Disney World, not to mention it will be WAY more expensive than your typical resort stay. 

That said, the experience sounds like it is going to be highly interactive and detailed! There will even be new Star Wars friends roaming around the ship during your stay!

  1. Exactly why I moved the trip to late august 2022. Traditionally low crowds, and hoping that Cosmic Rewind and Tron are up and running, along with the Moana water section being done. Hopefully we’ll be at a point that covid is just an endemic and masks won’t be needed for travel and park time.

  2. It is too bad the pandemic delayed so many projects at WDW. The ongoing construction & scaled back live performances and loss of customer services make WDW more disappointing than celebratory.
