Right now, most of the focus is on Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary–but did you know that there’s another special anniversary happening in Disney Parks all over the world? It’s Winnie the Pooh’s 95th anniversary! As Disney put it on the Disney Parks Blog, a “Winnie the Pooh anniversary without a few willy, nilly, silly ol’ bear surprises is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside”, so Disney will not disappoint when it comes to the Pooh-themed celebrations!

In the Tokyo Disney Resort, Guests should head to Pooh’s Hunny Hunt to honor the cheerful ursine. We love the unique ‘hunny’ pots used in this ride for transportation!

In Disneyland, the place to be is the “Hundred-Acre Wood”, which allows you to travel “in an oversized beehive and revisit beloved songs and scenes from Winnie the Pooh”. A Winnie the Pooh ride is always guaranteed to be a relaxing, quaint ride (except if you’re the Kingdom Keepers)!

The Kingdom Keepers had a particularly dangerous time on Walt Disney World Resort’s version of a Winnie the Pooh ride, as any readers or fans of the book series will know, but the average Disney Guest can enjoy The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh without worry. It’s certainly an appropriate ride for the occasion!

The Pooh festivities also are continuing at Walt Disney World Resort with a unique Winnie the Pooh golden statue that’s part of the“Disney Fab 50 Character Collection” for Disney World’s 50th anniversary!

If you’re in Hong Kong Disneyland Resort right now, then the resort’s Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh “also allows you to celebrate our favorite furry friend and wander through Hundred Acre Wood in an oversized hunny pot”. There’s arguably no place better to “make your way through a colorful, song-filled storybook wonderland while experiencing kooky adventures”!

Winnie the Pooh wouldn’t be himself if he didn’t have a love of good food, so linger in the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort for Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Lollipop Donuts as well as Winnie the Pooh Mango Jam & Piglet Raspberry Jam Lollipop Cookies! In the Disneyland Resort, there’s also a special Tigger Marshmallow Tail to try!
