Your weekly theme park rundown (September 27 – October 3)
Here’s the Orlando theme park news you need to know for the week of September 27 through October 3.
1. The most magical place on Earth
The news this week is (almost) all Disney. Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration kicked off on Friday and important announcements were made ahead of the festivities. Celebrations were held throughout the resort, but the star of the show was Magic Kingdom (which makes sense, considering that this is the park which celebrates its 50 years). We recapped the day in our article here.

Two major space attraction announcements were made this week. The highly anticipated and highly immersive Galaxy’s Edge hotel, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will open on March 1, 2022, and reservations will be available from October 28, 2021! Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is slated to debut in 2022. This coaster will be the first for EPCOT and will be one of the longest closed coasters in the world.
