“The Most Magical Celebration on Earth” is bringing loads of sweets and treats, special events, and all-new shows and experiences to the Walt Disney World Resort this year, and we are so excited to see all of this magic come to life for the resort’s 50th anniversary. Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts are right in the center of the magic with their close proximity to EPCOT and special offerings just for this special occasion. Here’s how to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort right at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts.
For a sweet 50th anniversary treat, visit The Market at Ale & Compass, the quick service component of the full service Ale & Compass restaurant. There you can pick up the indulgent 50th Celebration Tart! This tasty dessert option is made with a birthday cake mousse dome on top of a milk chocolate mousse-filled vanilla tart shell with mini chocolate crisp pearls, buttercream, fondant, and chocolate décor. It has that beautiful EARidescent glow that we’re finding all over the Walt Disney World Resort this year, and it looks delicious.
While at the resort, take a short walk or quick boat ride aboard a FriendShip boat to EPCOT’s International Gateway. From there, you’ll find yourself right in World Showcase where you can take in the magic of Harmonious from anywhere around World Showcase Lagoon.
And, back at the resort, Guests can participate in scavenger hunts and themed pool parties planned just for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. You can also pick up limited edition refillable mugs from your resort’s quick service restaurant, or hop aboard a bus celebrating the anniversary with classic Disney characters as you set out to explore your next theme park. You may even spot some favorite characters popping up around the resort for photo opps!
