Walt Disney World is joining in the Disney+ Day celebration with early park admition for subscriber, and other Disney+ surprises. This year, Disney is celebrating Disney+ Day a little earlier, while Disney+ Day normally falls on the day it launched, November 12, this year it will fall on September 8, 2022.
What is Disney+ Day?
Disney+ Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the launch of Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+. With so many initial announcements for Disney+ being made at the D23 Expo in 2019, it’s not surprising that the Walt Disney Company is moving the celebration up a few months to kick of the excitement for D23 Expo 2022 – taking place from September 9, 2022 through September 11, 2022 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Disney+ Day promises the debut of several exclusives for the platform including a live-action version of Pinocchio, but what can you expect on September 8, 2022 in Walt Disney World?
Disney+ Day at Walt Disney World
Get ready to “Make it Blue” in celebration of Disney+ Day at the Most Magical Place on Earth! Walt Disney World guests who are Disney+ subscribers with valid admission get the “plussed” up experience of early entry into the parks. These select guests can enter the parks thirty minutes before regular park opening. This means that guests staying in select Walt Disney World Resort hotels will be able to enter the park sixty minutes before regular park opening!
Special Disney PhotoPass Lenses will also be available for Disney+ Day. Pose for a selfie with Groot or rock a pair of Mickey ears with these exclusive lenses available whether you’re celebrating in the parks or at home thanks to Snapchat and the My Disney Experience App!
The majority of the celebration will be taking place in the resort’s movie-themed park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney promises exclusive meet-and-greets and cavalcades featuring Disney+ characters and a few more surprises throughout the day! In the past Disney has also handed out Disney+ Day goodies like buttons, hats, and more at Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ entrance.
Your Disney+ Day isn’t over just yet! If you’re staying on property at at Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, wind down with a special Disney+ screening during Movie Under the Stars.
This is all we know for now, but we have a feeling so more exciting announcements will pop up as Disney+ Day gets closer! Be sure to check back for even more fun happening at Walt Disney World in September and beyond. Don’t forget to mark your calendars – Disney+ Day is September 8, 2022!
