2023 promises to be a big year for The Walt Disney Company. The house of mouse will officially celebrate its 100th anniversary on Oct. 16, 2023, but the festivities are kicking off this month and will last all year long — and at Disney destinations around the world. Disney 100 Years of Wonder (aka Disney100) will be a global celebration, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro announced at Disney’s D23 Expo, held in Anaheim in September.
“Each of our destinations around the world — on land and at sea — will showcase the anniversary in their own way,” D’Amaro said, but told fans that Disneyland, Disney’s original theme park, will anchor the 100th-anniversary celebration.
Alongside Disney100 festivities, Disney theme parks, resorts and Disney Cruise ships around the world are debuting a broad range of new attractions and experiences in 2023. Here are the biggest Disney updates on the horizon this year.
