Celebrate 100 years of the Walt Disney Company at Walt Disney World

This year the Walt Disney Company is celebrating 100 years of making magic and memories - Can you believe it!? Whether you enjoy the magic of Disney from the big screen at the theater, the small screen, with toys at home or in the parks, there is sure to be something for everyone. 

Spaceship Earth has been dazzling us with changes the past year for the 50th Celebration and EPCOT’s 40th Anniversary, but now we’ll be seeing another change to celebrate Disney100. There will be a dazzling new light display for the biggest celebration yet! The new display will pay homage to the Wonderful World of Disney and you may even see some Mickey balloons float by on Spaceship Earth! 

While in EPCOT there is another new addition. There are now Disney100 backdrops in all four parks in addition to Disney Springs, so get your camera ready because you won’t want to miss this limited time photo opportunity. We challenge you to get a picture in front of each sign! The new 100th Anniversary signs are located in front of the entrance of each of the four parks. In EPCOT, the sign is located in a beautiful flower display with Spaceship Earth in the background. In Magic Kingdom, the sign is located in front of the train station. In Animal Kingdom the sign is located right in front of the ticket offices. And last but not least in Hollywood Studios, you can find the sign in the plaza in front of the entry gates. If you happen to find yourself in Disney Springs, you will have to venture over by the entrance/exit of the Orange Garage. 

Some of our fabulous friends even got some new outfits to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Walt Disney Company! Keep your eyes peeled for the Character Bus - trust us you can’t miss it, it’s covered in platinum and purple! The character bus has been known to visit several Walt Disney World Resort hotels with some of our favorite characters in their Disney 100 best. If the bus is at your resort, you never know who might be there greeting guests! In addition to the character bus, guests can meet Minnie and Mickey in their Platinum outfits in EPCOT. 

A celebration isn’t complete without merchandise! The decades collection will be changing throughout the year to highlight different decades with corresponding merchandise. So far we have seen different movies and cartoons featured in this collection such as The Three Caballeros, Steamboat Willie and Pinocchio in the form of Loungefly backpacks, MagicBands, ears and plushes. As the year goes on we’ll see lots of additional decades featured. There are also TONS of collectibles, spirit jerseys, all sorts of apparel and accessories in platinum and purple to celebrate Disney100.

Eat your way through the 100th Year of the Walt Disney Company with limited time offerings like the 100th Anniversary petite cake at Amorette's Patisserie in Disney Springs. There are also refillable resort mugs and refillable popcorn buckets to celebrate Disney100. Refillable mugs are $21.99 and can be refilled throughout your stay at a Walt Disney World Resort. 100th Anniversary Popcorn Buckets are $13 - they come filled with popcorn and can be refilled for $2.25! If you have multiple trips this year we recommend bringing your popcorn bucket back with you to save a little bit of extra money!
