    We are coming March 28 to April 4, 2015. Wondering if there is anything happening April Fool's Day. Thanks


    Welcome Back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. What an amazing question! On April 1st, pandemonium would occur if rumor got out that Walt Disney World Resort was offering a free stay in the Cinderella Castle Suite, unlimited FastPass+ reservations, free Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars and turkey legs. Of course, with all the silly pranks played on Classic Disney characters you would totally expect Walt Disney World Resort to have some silly symphony of April 1st humor.

    If you do an internet search for celebrations in the past you will find many online pranks.  One year Walt Disney World Resort gave tickets away for free from 9:30 AM to 9:35 AM.  Another year a headline was released revealing a 5th Walt Disney World Theme Park where all the retired attractions from yesteryear were reopening. These were ALL INTERNET HOAXES but definitely got people excited. Walt Disney World Resort does not partake in any April Fools Day pranks. They are very aware of Guests sensitivities and want their experiences to be magical and not mischievous. This does not mean the day has gone unnoticed.

    For many years a special edition April Fools Day collectors pin was released. They may have one this year. Be on the lookout beginning a few weeks before April 1st at Disney’s Pin Traders and World of Disney at Downtown Disney, Frontier Trading Post in the Magic Kingdom Park as well as many other merchandise locations to snag this unique pin. You will still have a wonderful time on April 1st and that’s no joke. 

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
