The WDWNT Network is proud to have renewed its partnership with WDWCelebrations, the same group that led fan celebrations for Epcot’s 25th anniversary, Animal Kingdom’s 10th anniversary, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ 20th anniversary. The group announced two new upcoming Florida events this week that I think you’ll be interested in:
WDWCelebrations Returns to Florida for a “Holiday Hoopla!” in December 2010, and a Celebration of the Historic 40th Anniversary of the Walt Disney World® Resort in October 2011
Celebrate the holidays and Walt’s birthday during our Signature Event, Thursday-Sunday, December 2nd-5th, 2010, and mark your calendars for our mega celebration of Walt Disney World’s 40th anniversary on October 1, 2011.
The WDWCelebrations Team is excited to announce two new events at the Walt Disney World® Resort for 2010 and 2011. While the summer of 2010 will see WDWCelebrations heading west to celebrate the 55th Anniversary of Disneyland® Park, our return to Florida will be marked by a double-event homecoming of epic proportions.
WDWCelebrations is decking the halls in December 2010 with our Signature Event, “Holiday Hoopla!”. The Walt Disney World® Resort takes on an even more magical feel during the holiday season, and WDWCelebrations is preparing to share it with you!
The four-day event, set for December 2-5, 2010, will showcase the special holiday offerings of all four theme parks as well as the resort hotels. Guests will enjoy their favorite WDWCelebrations signature offerings such as history walks, scavenger hunts, group rides, group meals, and, of course, a few very special surprises, all set to the warmth and glow of Christmastime at Walt Disney World® Resort.
The timing of the event is no coincidence; attendees will be able to enjoy the full holiday splendor of the parks at a more-relaxed pace and still be back home to spend the heart of the holidays with their families. The event schedule also gives WDWCelebrations a chance to celebrate the anniversary of Walt Disney’s birth on December 5th with fellow Disney fans. WDWCelebrations co-founder Jason Diffendal hints, “We’ve got a special celebration in the works for the birthday, but we’re not revealing any of Santa’s secrets just yet.”
Meanwhile, the WDWCelebrations elves are hard at work making their lists and checking them twice, with lots of preparations already underway. Like all WDWCelebrations events, there are always plenty of little surprises, and you never know just who might show up.
Looking ahead to 2011, October 1st marks the historic 40th anniversary of the Walt Disney World® Resort. As with our previous events, this celebration will include our own signature offerings to complement the official activities offered by the Walt Disney Company.
Adam Roth, co-founder of WDWCelebrations, explains, “The 40th anniversary marks the biggest resort-wide celebration since our inception, and we’re planning our most ambitious event to date to honor four incredible decades of magic in Central Florida. Mark your calendars now for October 1, 2010, as this will be a celebration you won’t want to miss.”
Registration for “Holiday Hoopla!” will open in May 2010. Registration for the 40th anniversary event will open in Spring 2011. More information about these events will be released in the coming months via the WDWCelebrations.com website and newsletter as well as the WDWCelebrations official fan page on Facebook and the @WDWCelebrations Twitter feed.
