The Centennial in the Parks
Walt Disney World announced monthly themes to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company over the next several months. April focused on Earth Day, the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s conservation efforts.
In Florida, the festivities will mostly be concentrated around EPCOT, and both Mickey and Minnie will don their platinum outfits for guests. A new Spectacle of Light show will debut on Spaceship Earth, and, in late 2023, a new nighttime spectacular will premiere to replace “Harmonious.” Journey of Water Inspired by Moana, CommuniCore Hall, World Celebration Garden, and Dreamers Point are all scheduled to open in late 2023 at EPCOT.

The 100 Years of Wonder celebration is in full swing at Disneyland Resort, where guests can enjoy “Wondrous Journeys” at Disneyland and “World of Color – ONE” at Disney California Adventure. Beginning next month, Disneyland Resort will offer the “Celebrating Disney100 at the Disneyland Resort” guided tour, including a walk through both parks, the drawing experience at Animation Academy, a digital download of a photo taken in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, a special snack, reserved viewing for “Magic Happens” parade, and limited-edition pin.
