My Disney Experience App Updated for the 50th Anniversary Celebrations!
There’s no more countdowns… today’s the day! It’s October 1st, the 50th Anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort.
Since August 12th – fifty days ago to be exact – the My Disney Experience app has been displaying a countdown timer to this very day.
Now that it’s October 1st, however, the app has updated itself with some exciting new changes, to help guests enjoy the Most Magical Celebration!
Upon entering the Magic Kingdom this morning and logging into My Disney Experience, MickeyBloggers were greeted with a magical new banner, in celebration of 50th Anniversary.
Featuring Cinderella Castle glimmering in EAR-idescent sparkles next to a dazzling number 50, this sure is a magical welcome to the parks!
As well as this banner, further updates have arrived in the app too. For the anniversary, four updated park guides have been introduced, highlighting the key experiences that guests will not want to miss!
Let’s start with the Magic Kingdom, whose park banner is dazzling on the app in an EAR-idescent shade of rose gold. Included in the long list of “Can’t-Miss Experiences” in the Most Magical park is the brand-new nighttime spectacular Disney Enchantment, which premieres tonight!
Last night, MickeyBlog were lucky enough to attend a very special preview of the stunning show, which lights up the whole of Main Street, U.S.A.. Check out our footage here – it’s not to be missed!
Moving on to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which shines in a brilliant, starry gold on the My Disney Experience app.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be celebrating the 50th anniversary by lighting up the Hollywood Tower Hotel as a Beacon of Magic – a dazzling new light show which will take place on each of the four park icons.
At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, guests can enjoy the brand-new performances of Disney KiteTails. Taking place around Discovery River Lagoon, this show features stunning puppets, kites, music and storytelling.
The banner for the Animal Kingdom guide is glowing in an adventurous shade of sparkly green, giving a celebratory new look to the wild resort.
MickeyBlog was also lucky enough to view a preview of this new show yesterday. Unfortunately, there were some considerable technical difficulties, but we can’t wait to see it pick up and delight guests throughout the 50th Anniversary.
Last but not least is Epcot. Displayed in a mystical shade of silvery-blue, Epcot is set for a very exciting time during the anniversary celebrations.
From the grand opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, to the brand-new, spectacular Harmonious, there’s so much to see and do at Epcot. Today will also see the introduction of the park’s brand-new neighbourhoods, so stay tuned to MickeyBlog.com for all the details on that!
Whether you are in the parks or at home, we hope you have fun exploring the new 50th Anniversary updates on the My Disney Experience app!
