Walt Disney World is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021. For many brands, an anniversary is a time to look back. But as a company, Walt Disney World Resort is trying to show its vision for the future. How can we create a connective tissue between Walt Disney World’s legacy and its future?
Research shows that even though millennials are becoming increasingly apprehensive about the future, they crave for meaningful, transformative experience for their families and themselves. They are the most compassionate, attentive, and responsible generation of parents, and they would like to be recognized as such.
Walt Disney World has the power of providing a unique learning opportunity and unforgettable bonding experience for the whole family, regardless of its members’ age. By focusing on the positivities of the past and excitingness of the future, Walt Disney World can elevate its brand affinity among skeptical millennial parents.
For Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, we invite grandparents, who visited WDW during its inaugural year to re-live the Power of Magic along with their grandchildren. We also invite the internet to follow their journey of intergenerational bonding and self-discovery and join the celebration by commenting and sharing their docu-diaries, or - better yet - create their own.
