Here Are All the Ways You Can Ring in the New Year at Disney World!
2020 is just a few short days away, and the Disney Parks are all getting ready to ring in the new decade with some very limited time firework offerings! Each park will host its own unique way to ring in the New Year. Here's all the info you need to know before you go.
Magic Kingdom Park will light up the night on December 30 and 31 with “Fantasy in the Sky” fireworks at both 6:30 pm and 11:50 pm, plus celebration dance parties in Frontierland and Tomorrowland from 7 PM to Midnight. There will also be a live stream of the show on the Disney Parks Blog on December 31st for those who can't attend in person.
Epcot will celebrate the New Year as it moves around World Showcase. Each international pavilion will offer a festive announcement when the clock strikes midnight in their country, and guests can enjoy live music at the America Gardens Theatre. And when the clock strikes midnight, guests can gather around World Showcase to catch “Epcot Forever” at 6:30, plus a special countdown to 2020 at 11:40.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios will also celebrate starting at 7 p.m. on December 31 with a dance party at Center Stage. Then, you can watch “Wonderful World of Animation” at 6:05 p.m., “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” at 6:30 p.m., and “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular” just after midnight.
And at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, guests can celebrate with specially-themed food and beverage. There will also be multiple showings of Rivers of Light: We Are One at 6:30 pm, 8:00 pm, and 11:15 pm. The park will also stay open until midnight and include a special countdown-to-midnight on the Tree of Life.
Don't forget that "Fantasy in the Sky" will be shown on both the 30th and 31st, so you have two days to view the Magic Kingdom New Years' offering (which can also be enjoyed from the Magic Kingdom area resorts). Also keep in mind that the Disney Parks get extremely busy every year on New Years Eve, so we recommend getting to the parks as early as possible. It is not uncommon for Magic Kingdom and Epcot to go into phase closing on days like these.
