Disney World Vacation Trends in 2018

Wondering what to expect on your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World in 2018. It’s crazy to look back and see just how much Disney World has evolved over the years. If you haven’t been to Disney World in a bit you may be wondering what the hottest things are in Disney World right now. Let’s take a look at Disney World vacation trends for 2018. If you want to know what is new at Disney World in 2018 read our complete article.

Millennial Pink

Move over rose gold hello millennial pink. What exactly is millennial pink? It’s a pale shade of pink that is almost close to skin tone color. It was originated back in 2016 when Pantone named Rose Quartz the color of the year. It became wildly popular with millennials thus getting its new nickname millennial pink.

Not only can you find millennial pink Minnie ears and MagicBand but you can also pick up a millennial pink Spirit Jersey to complete your look. But merchandise isn’t the only way you can celebrate in pink. At Magic Kingdom Park, you’ll find a Millennial Pink Milkshake at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies. This strawberry milkshake comes topped with fluffy cotton candy and house-made Mickey-shaped marshmallows. Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts are offering a Millennial Pink Raspberry Cream Puff. Found at The Market at Ale & Compass and Beach Club Marketplace, this delicious cream puff is filled with raspberry Bavarian cream and glazed with a sugar icing. There is a whole list of offerings over here.


Head to the Land of Toy Story

Disney World Vacation Trends in 2018 1

Hollywood Studios is getting one large addition just in time for summer. Toy Story Land opens June 30, 2018, and we can’t be more excited. At 11 acres this is no small addition to Hollywood Studios. Toy Story Land will be located behind the existing Toy Story Mania attraction, which means the entrance to the current attraction will be moving. This new land will use some of the areas from the former Studio Backlot Tour.


Magicband Apple Watch Holder

It’s all about making your trips more convenient to Disney World. Magicbands are handy since it prevents you from digging out a wallet or through your bag for every Fastpass you want to use. However, not everyone wants all the wrist clutter. I have loved removing my center puck from my MagicBand 2 and placing it on my Apple Watch one less thing to wear on those hot, sweaty, summer days here in Florida! Our Etsy shop has loads of colors including glitter options and glow in the dark!! If you have a Fitbit or Apple Watch this a great alternative.

Animal Kingdom 

Tree of Life

Did you know that the Animal Kingdom turned twenty on Earth day this year? It’s hard to believe this park opened 20 years ago I remember when it first opened!!! Don’t skip out on this park during your trip. There is a brand new UP! bird show that took the place of Flights of Wonder. Pandora is not to be missed I love stopping for a meal at Satuli Canteen. Plus if you are a big merchandise collector there is some limited edition merch in celebration of this anniversary.

Instagram Walls

Purple Wall Magic Kingdom

Pictures are a fantastic way to remember your family vacation to Disney World. We are finding that more and more Disney walls are becoming hotspots to grab a picture. They make fantastic backdrops and best of all they don’t have crazy long waits like for the characters and castle do! For more, we have a whole list of the Disney wall hotspots.
