    Are there any details known yet?

    Looking forward to it and want to return for it. We did the 25th at both DL and DW. Also, we did the 50th at DL.

    This will probably be our last trip there. We are hoping to be 4 generations there for the celebration.

    Still 1.5 years away. We may learn something at D23 Expo 2019 but nothing known yet.

    Hope they learned from the castle cupcake fiasco at the 25th. We were there over Christmas that year and it was gross. Many once in a lifetime visitors were unable to see the icon of the park with the makeover.

    So I had to Google it... and OMG what were they thinking?!! Looks like the Candy Land board game threw up all over the castle.

    Most guests we heard talking about it while there were pissed. Several were once in a lifetime and didn't get to have their picture taken in front of Cinderella's Castle, but a giant pink atrocity.

    I plan on staying at the Poly for the 50th. My 40th birthday is 2 days before so we are planning on making it a huge thing. It will be my first time at ta deluxe and I'm already saving for the whole thing

    I liked it, but I was 10. I was mad my parents got to see it in person and I didn't.

    I also didn't get to see it and wish I had - I think for semi-regular visitors it was fun and cute and something different, but do get why "once in a lifetime" visitors were not so happy about it

    So, will the 50th anniversary begin with January, 2021 or will it first start on the real anniversary date of October 1, 2021?

    It likely will start for the summer period.
