    Marissa Asked

    We will be visiting WDW during New Years Eve. We are very excited to plan for our day/night. Any idea when NYE plans will be announced? Is there any information for celebrations other than Disney Quest yet? We were considering going to EPCOT. Thanks!

    Hi, Marissa!

    Thanks for writing to us with your great question. You’re going to have a blast ringing in the New Year at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    I think Epcot is a great choice for New Year’s Eve because the park’s large size and generous walking paths seem to absorb heavier crowds better than the other theme parks. There are usually two showings of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth on New Year’s Eve, so you could plan to see the first show and still have time to explore World Showcase and enjoy the fireworks display before the big countdown to midnight. 

    Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more details about the New Year’s Eve events and special extras planned at Walt Disney World as the holiday season approaches. In the past, specific plans were announced around mid-October, so be sure to check back then.  Highlights will likely include extra-special holiday fireworks, live music, unique dining opportunities and a wide variety of entertainment. Special fireworks shows are typically held at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios in addition to Epcot on New Year’s Eve, so no matter which park you end up choosing, you’ll be able to welcome 2014 with a bang!

    I hope this helps, Marissa, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please write back with more questions as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
