Walt Disney World Resort kicks off the 50th anniversary celebration on Oct. 1! For Guests staying in the magic at one of The Disney Resorts Collection hotels, they have extra pixie dust waiting during this celebration.

Disney previously announced theme park entry benefits for Disney Resort hotel Guests and Guests of other select hotels, which will give Guests the first chance to enjoy select attractions at every theme park, every day. And for Guests staying at a Disney Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort hotels, they can also enjoy extended evening hours on select nights in select theme parks beginning in early October.

But the fun doesn’t stop there! In addition to this special access to theme parks, Disney Resorts will be serving up some special moments, with surprise appearances from some of our favorite Disney friends, donning their dazzling EARidescent best. These pals have a lot of character, and they’re not the only ones! With shimmering new nametags, Cast Members are the heart of this once-in-a-lifetime celebration and are eager to share a little bit of their world with you during this special time.

Haven’t decided where to stay yet? Check out some of our newly reimagined Guest rooms at our two original hotels. There’s an all-new retro-modern flare at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. All rooms in the tower will feature a sleek Monorail motif with some favorite characters from Pixar Animation Studios’ Incredibles films that will carry through Guest corridors. Meanwhile, the resort lobby will display a collection of modern art along with historical photographs of this beloved resort while under construction before opening to Guests in 1971.

Or for Guests looking for an iconic stay that will let them relax with the colors and vibes of the Pacific, consider sailing over to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, with newly reimagined rooms where Guests will find details inspired by the hit Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Moana.” The resort’s brand-new entrance was completed earlier this week as well, welcoming Guests with Pacific island accents that they’ll notice in the newly decorated Monorail station before riding high in the sky to their next destination.

And when relaxing back in a Guest room, take in the ambiance while enjoying a cup of coffee, brewed right from the comfort of your room with a special Joffrey’s Coffee blend made just for the Walt Disney World 50th celebration! This blend is also available to purchase to keep the celebration going after returning home.

There are lots of special touches to be found at these and all our Disney Resort hotels during our Walt Disney World 50thcelebration.
