The Disney FanFest is a suggested event for Walt Disney World after it finishes its 50th anniversary on October 3, 2023 and the Disney Channel Go! Fan Fest at Disneyland ended. The entire resort could have a slight Disney Channel makeover where some of the attractions will be rethemed and the Disney Channel stars will get to greet guests; but its theme song will still be "Remember the Magic" which was originally used for the resort's 25th anniversary. It will start on October 7, 2023 (to coincide with Disney's 100th anniversary and Mickey Mouse's 95th anniversary and Frozen's 10th anniversary) to February 23, 2025.

This celebration would be dedicated to the loving memory of Cameron Boyce, known for playing Carlos in the Descendants series, and who passed away on July 6, 2019.
