  • Snack like it’s 1955 with treats that are inspired by the park’s early days, made once again just for this event!
  • Picture yourself in vintage photo backdrops of attractions and posters from yesteryear like Skyway or Autopia, and from timeless Disney films captured by Disney PhotoPass photographers at the party.
