The new year is approaching in just under two weeks and the magic continues to return in a big way!  Here’s a quick look at just some of what’s ahead for Walt Disney World in 2021.


Park Hopping is back!  Starting January 1 guests will be able to hop between the four theme parks in one day!  Guests will need a Park Pass Reservation for the first park they wish to enter.  At 2pm, they may check the app for availability at the other 3 parks and hop to the one they choose.  We love the added flexibility this type of ticket provides.


Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Arts runs from January 8-February 22.  This is a favorite of the PPV Inc. team.  It brings talented artists, performers and culinary masterpieces together in one place, World Showcase.  PPV favorites include participating in the larger than life paint-by-number mural, going on a scavenger hunt with Figment and sidewalk chalk art that is jaw-dropping.


Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival returns March 3, 2021 at Walt Disney World Resort. With garden-fresh cuisines, creative gardens and unforgettable topiaries, this vibrant festival combines the freshest flowers and flavors from around the world. This year the festival will run through July 5!


PROMOS! PROMOS! PROMOS! There are currently several on-site room discounts for guests to take advantage of.  You can save up to 35% for travel through April 17 (book by March 15).  Disney Visa Cardmembers can save on travel through February 28 (book by February 28) and US Military special room rates are out for 2021 travel (limited availability so book asap).  On January 5th,  a new park ticket promotion will roll out! Guests will receive 2 extra days added to their park ticket on a select 4-night/3-day room and ticket package.  This one is for arrivals most nights January 8 through September 25.


Book with Confidence continues for travel through April 30, 2021.  Walt Disney World understands the unpredictability of life right now so for packages booked through April 30, 2021, there will not be any penalties for cancelations or modifications up to the day of check-in.


More Walt Disney World resorts are open for booking! Disney’s Beach Club resort, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s All-Star Movies will begin welcoming guests back at various times in 2021.  Disney’s Polynesian Village will welcome guests back this summer with a fresh look inspired by none other than Moana.



New attractions and resorts are slated to open in 2021! Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will open in the France Pavilion at EPCOT This is a 3D trackless ride that will shrink you down to the size of a rat, Chef Remy, and take you on an adventure through Gusteau’s Restaurant.  Construction has resumed on Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser- a luxury fully-immersive hotel experience where Star Wars fans can live their very own epic Star Wars story. EPCOT continues full-speed ahead on its major renovations at the main entrance with the goal to open most by the 50th celebration in late 2021.  These include the indoor story-coaster, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, the new Space 220 restaurant, and Harmonius, the new nighttime spectacular.



Walt Disney World celebrates 50 yEARS of magic!  The official anniversary is October 1, 2021 but expect the celebration to last more than a few days!  As details are released we will share with you!
