    I'm betting that it's going to be fan celebrations in the vein of Epcot's 25th. Although hopefully we get an announcement at D23 about some attractions that might be opening in time for the 40th.

    2011...WDW opened on October 1st, 1971. However, that doesn't stop Disney from including the year before and year after and stretch it out...

    Re: 40th Anniversary

    wow. I can't wait to see what they'll do... not just for the 40th... but we better get some biiiiiig stuff for the 50th! I can see an AMAZING parade at the MK, (Finally retire ALL of the SADCT floats!!!!) with some really cool stuff related to Walt, because after all, WDW is a tribute to Walter Elias Disney.

To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!

    It's pretty exciting to see this park grow and be able to be a part of it.

    Re: 40th Anniversary

    I also hope we'll have a celebration like Disneyland's 40th...with less banners hung all over...more decor like the 50th where it seemed to be elegant, yet fun. I'm thinking maybe we'll have the opening of the New Fantasyland for the 40th... which I wouldn't mind, but I hope Epcot's 30th doesn't get forgotten. They need to learn something from the fans that gathered for the 25th. There would be PLENTY more fans and regular guests that would come to see the 30th anniversary activities!

    I hope that doesn't happen again...but I think Disney will do something special for the 40th anniversary!
    I hope we never lose sight of one thing,
    that it was all started by a mouse.
