Disney World Announces Celebration for Magic Kingdom’s 45th Anniversary

45 Anniversary


Its a banner year for Magic Kingdom with 45th Anniversary celebrations kicking off on October 1st.  Though it certainly won’t be on the same scale as Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary, details ares slowly trickling in as to how Disney World plans to ring in this special day in Magic Kingdom’s history.  Here’s what we know so far:

Special Celebration in front of Cinderella’s Castle– Those visiting the Magic Kingdom on October 1st will get to take in  a special presentation (the details of which have yet to be released) at the Forecourt Stage directly in front of the Castle at 9:30am.  So be sure to get to the park bright and early.

Merchandise – For those who have yet to see the unboxing of Magic Kingdom’s 45th Anniversary Merchandise.

Here it is:

From t-shirts, keychains, MagicBands, exclusive pins to stunning Dooney and Bourke bags, 45th Anniversary collectors items will definitely be flying off the shelves  so get yours while supplies last.

Food and Drink –  As with any good Disney celebration guests can also ring in Magic Kingdom’s anniversary by tucking in to some delightful snacks created specifically for the occasion.  Disney’s is being a bit secretive in terms what exactly will be on offer though we do know that you’ll want to pop by either Main Street Bakery or Gaston’s Tavern to find out.

The Disney rumor mill is buzzing with other possible happenings in and around Magic Kingdom’s on October 1st, from Character Meet and Greets to other special events so watch this space and we’ll keep you updated as and when details start to trickle in.

Hope to see you there!
