    will anything special be happening on dec. 31st?

    Hi Myrna!


    New Year's Eve is one of the most magical evenings of the year at the Walt Disney World Resort! However, expect to see greater numbers of Guests in attendance that day. If you choose to visit a theme park, I would suggest Epcot. There will be storytellers in the different countries to delight everyone with tales of how the holidays are celebrated in their homeland. I recommend going to Epcot at Rope Drop, then staying for the duration of the day. Once theme parks reach a certain capacity, Guests won't be allowed admittance into the theme park. Below you'll find some highlights of what you can expect on December 31, 2011.


    1. Magic Kingdom: Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at 8:30 p.m. and Fantasy in the Sky at 11:50 p.m.
    2. Epcot: IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at 7:00 p.m. and 11:40 p.m.
    3. Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Fantasmic! at 6:30 and 8 p.m. There will be a Lights! Camera! Happy New Year! fireworks display at midnight.
    4. Downtown Disney Area: Guests attending the Dec. 31 Cirque Du Soleil - La Nouba performances will receive a limited-edition Walt Disney World/Cirque trading pin. Shows are at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.
    5. Registered guests at select Disney resort hotels will be treated to live music and special entertainment. For example, there will be a four-course dining experience at Narcoossees' with special fireworks viewing at 8:30 p.m. and 11:50 p.m. For more information on other New Year's Eve dining experiences at Disney resort hotels, call (407) WDW-DINE.
    6. Disney's BoardWalk: Atlantic Dance Hall is offering a special-ticket New Year's Eve party from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. with video DJ Tony Zapulla.


    Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you. Enjoy ringing in the New Year Disney-style!
