Greetings fellow Mouse Fans!
October 1, 2011 is the 40th Anniversary of Walt Disney World. While in the past we have seen grand celebrations of various anniversaries (such as the God-awful pink cake overlay of Cinderella's Castle), this anniversary appears to be going largely unmarked by Disney. But all hope is not lost!
The official Disney Parks twitter account (@DisneyParks) tweeted the following last week: "We can't reveal all the details, but guests at Magic Kingdom can expect special surprises on Oct.1." Hmmmmm – a commemorative pin? That's my best guess but it does say "surprises" – plural! Whatever it is, if you plan to be at the Magic Kingdom on October 1, plan to get there early in the day. I'm guessing the crowd levels will be pretty high!
Be well and make magic wherever you go!
