Disney World Announces a Spook-tacular Event

We all know how much Walt Disney World loves to celebrate, whether it’s for a holiday or its 50th Anniversary. Disney just adores a party.

We had a fantastic time at Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration at the Magic Kingdom and the opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT, both on October 1, 2021. Who can forget the intergalactic shindig that Disney through to celebrate the opening of Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios?
