One of the best times of the year to be at Walt Disney World is during the New Year. There is actually a huge fireworks show every day at Walt Disney World, but the parks pull out all of the stops when the clock chimes midnight announcing January the first.
There are two different fireworks extravaganzas at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom on the New Year. This is so that families with young ones can celebrate the joy of the season as well. The first fireworks program is called “Wishes,” and it is at 8:30 in the evening on December the 31st. The second fireworks program is called “Fantasy in the Sky,” and it starts at 11:51pm on December the 31st.
There are also events going on at other parks. Epcot hosts its yearly IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth show, which is a unique way to ring in the New Year. If you happen to be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can enjoy watching “Fantasmic!,” which is a show that includes water, fire, lasers, fireworks, and music. It will be playing at 6:30pm and 8pm. Disney’s Hollywood Studios also has its own fireworks show at midnight, called, “Lights! Camera! Happy New Year!”
Select Disney resort hotels will also be putting on their New Year’s best and offering their guests certain entertainment while ringing in the New Year. Be sure to ask whether your Disney resort is offering anything of interest during the New Year holiday. You might be surprised what is offered for your enjoyment!
