    We will be in EPCOT for NYE. I've been checking daily for any special events, but have not seen any. I believe in past there have been fireworks near midnight, but still nothing listed for EPCOT for later, but the MK ones are. Am I missing something

    Hiya Christopher! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this great question!

    What a wonderful time of the year it is! With the holidays in full swing and Christmas only days away, the magic is surrounding us all! I'm so excited that you have a Walt Disney World trip to look forward to in less than a week! My family and I visited over New Year's a couple of years ago, and it was the perfect way to end the holiday season!

    According to the Walt Disney World website, Harmonious is scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM on New Year's Eve. This is a much earlier time than this nighttime spectacular typically begins, which would leave me to believe there may be some additional entertainment closer to the midnight hour. There is no official word if this is the case, but if history is any indication, I would be cautiously optimistic. EPCOT is open until 1 AM on this night, so you'll definitely be able to ring in the new year here! I would suggest following the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements leading up to this big night! 

    As you mentioned, the Magic Kingdom does have a special fireworks event scheduled for New Year's Eve. Fantasy In The Sky Fireworks will take place at both 6:30 PM and 11:50 PM on this night. If you happen to be in the Magic Kingdom a day earlier on December 30th, this firework display will also be shown at each of these times as well. You'll have plenty of opportunities to catch these fantastic displays!

    Christopher, I hope you have a magical visit to Walt Disney World! It's hard to beat this time of year at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    See ya real soon!
