Disney has announced some of the new activities that will be taking place on Disney+ Day – Thursday 8th September 2022, around the world at Disney’s theme parks.

In celebration of Disney+ Day, guests at Disney theme parks will discover new ways to “plus” their experience with special offerings and fan-favorite fun.

On Thursday 8th September, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California will usher in the festivities with Disney+-inspired character meet-and-greets, photo opportunities and more. Disney+ subscribers and their party with theme park tickets and reservations are once again invited to enter the theme parks at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort 30 minutes before regular park open on 8 September. Subscribers will also enjoy complimentary Disney PhotoPass digital download(s) at select locations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the Disneyland theme parks that day.*

Also in celebration of Disney+ Day, guests staying in select Walt Disney World Resort Hotels and Hotels of the Disneyland Resort (with valid admission and a reservation) will have the opportunity to enter 60 minutes before regular park open at any Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort theme parks.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort, celebrate Disney+ Day with Disney+ character meet-and-greets and cavalcades, “plus” more surprises throughout the day (valid theme park admission and Disney’s Hollywood Studios park reservation required). Guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can wind down with a special Disney+ screening at Movie Under the Stars.

Also be on the lookout for commemorative chalk art at the Downtown Disney District and at the Disneyland Hotel, ways to “plus” your pics as well as fun and festive food and beverage throughout the Disneyland Resort. Strike a starry pose at Hollywood Land with a photo op featuring Mater and Lightning McQueen before vrooming over to Cars Land – inspired by the Disney and Pixar movie “Cars” – to meet the four-wheeled stars themselves!   Guests staying at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort are also invited to stop by Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa for a special movie screening.

Disney is also going to be offering special blue-dusted churros, which will only be available at Disneyland Resort theme parks this Disney+ Day on Buena Vista Street and Grizzly Peak at Disney California Adventure park, near Sleeping Beauty Castle and Astro Blasters in Tomorrowland at Disneyland park. At the Downtown Disney District, choose from three true-blue cocktails: an Ocean Breeze at Naples Ristorante E Bar, Blue Hawaiian at Uva Bar & Cafe, and a Tropical Margarita at Tortilla Jo’s.

Fans are invited to join the celebrations digitally by stepping up their selfie game with Disney PhotoPass Lenses for Disney+ Day. These new limited-time lenses will be available to those celebrating in the parks or at home in the U.S. through Snapchat and the My Disney Experience app.

Disneyland Paris will delight guests with new surprises, including special entertainment, dedicated photo opportunities and a blue-themed dessert on 8 September. For more fanfare, Disney+ subscribers* and their party with theme park tickets and reservations are invited for the first time to enter Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris at 9:00am (30 minutes before regular park opening) only on 8th September, 2022.  Those who want to immerse themselves in more Disney fun can book their Disneyland Paris package current and enjoy up to a one-year Disney+ subscription (offer dependent on product and region; terms and conditions apply).  Hong Kong Disneyland will celebrate with guests visiting the park on 10 September.
