    What is the best place to view the fireworks display at HS on New Year's Eve?

    Hi there, Mia!

    On December 31, 2011, Disney's Hollywood Studios will be open from 8:00 AM to 12:00 AM, with Disney Resort Guests receiving Extra Magic Hours until 3:00 AM!

    Catch the 3:00 PM Pixar and Pals Countdown to Fun parade, and get set for an evening of magic.

    The hugely popular spectacular Fantasmic! will be shown at 6:30 PM, 8:00 PM, and 10:00 PM.

    And and midnight, the "Lights, Camera, Happy New Year" fireworks will light up the night.

    The fireworks will be shot off behind the iconic Sorcerer's Hat. You'll want to get a place close to Crossroads of the World, the shop near the Park entrance, the sign of which features Mickey Mouse standing atop a globe. Positioning yourself here will provide the best sight line to see the fireworks behind the Sorcerer's Hat and down Hollywood Boulevard.

    Let the New Year ring!

    See you later, celebrator.
