This morning (June 22, 2021) on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Walt Disney World released more details for its upcoming 50th Anniversary celebration that will start on October 1.
With the rise in tourists returning to Walt Disney World, the resort has announced they will be reopening three dining options in the next few months.
One of my favorite parts of Disney’s Animal Kingdom has reopened to guests! Walt Disney World announced that guests may visit the petting zoo at Affection Section at Rafiki’s Planet Watch again.
Starting next month, after Labor Day, Walt Disney World will reduce the hours its theme parks will be open.
Last month, prior to reopening, Walt Disney World announced it was canceling this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Now comes word that Disney will be closing or postponing several more attractions and projected updates.
Here’s what we know so far:
Foodies visiting Walt Disney World during the holidays, can purchase a Disney’s Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler from December 22, 2019, to January 4, 2020.
To celebrate the Tasting Sampler’s return, the culinary team has created a full range of new treats and guest favorites, scattered throughout the park.
The annual Party for the Planet returns to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Saturday April 20 through Monday April 22 to celebrate Earth Day 2019.
In addition to the regular offerings of the park, there will be special animal encounters, photo ops, and merchandise themed for the weekend.
On Jan. 14, a baby Masai giraffe was born on the savanna at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and on March 12, it was reintroduced to the Kilimanjaro Safaris savanna.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom will mark its 20th anniversary celebration on Earth Day, April 22, and Walt Disney World will live stream the festivities starting at 10:15am.
The park will mark its 20th anniversary with a ‘Party For the Planet’ that will stretch from April 22-May 5. During that time, Rafiki’s Planet Watch will take center stage for the celebration, which will offer backstage experiences that allow guests to learn about animal nutrition, visit the veterinary hospital, or hear how Disney promotes global wildlife conservation.
Walt Disney World has announced something new will be coming to the popular Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and we have all the details.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the park will host a series of Tiffins Talks Dining Events from April 22 to May 4.
