40th Anniversary Afterall

So it is true. There will be SOMETHING for Disney's 40th. It seems strange to me because through the years it always seemed as though Disney needed an excuse to celebrate something. From the 100 years of magic to Mickey's birthday and such it always seemed as though some Disney related celebration was looming.

This time... Not so much. Surprisingly, it seemed as though The Walt Disney Company was content with letting October 1, 2011 pass without so much as a peep, a few merchandise opportunities and that be it. What I heard was that something will be done, just not as a long celebration like people expected. What exactly is being done seems to be a bit hush hush. I hear many groups and Disney people are doing their own celebration. I just wouldn't be too far from Magic Kingdom on October 1st. It seems something is definitely brewing.

UPDATE: It appears that Magic Kingdom has in fact changed its hours for October 1st. It will now be open until 12am. I wonder what this means now?


  1. Something tells me it's going to be a pleasant surprise for the many guests heading to WDW in October.

  2. I think you are right... I know there will be alot of fan meets especially on the 1st... Something tells me Disney has a plan that they might not be unveiling for fear of overcrowdedness...
