    Will Epcot have any special things going on for New Year’s Eve this year?

    Hi Russa,

    Welcome to planDisney! Welcoming the new year at the Walt Disney World Resort is on my to-do list!

    As you might imagine, this year's New Year's Eve at Walt Disney World Resort may look a little different. Plans are still underway, however, so keep following the Disney Parks Blog for official announcements. I can say that I am excited to see what Disney's creative talent has in store for us. Last year, there were a number of activities that included breathtaking views of the parks and resorts.

    Since dining experiences are important to my family, we always plan a few special ones on occasions to celebrate. Although there are several possibilities in EPCOT, I would be on the lookout for any Appetizing Occasions that include great window seating. Last year, Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera hosted a masquerade party complete with traditional musicians and vocalists from the Italian Riviera. If your plans are to be at EPCOT, then this restaurant would be just a quick Disney Skyliner ride away. A little farther away, Disney's Contemporary Resort hosted festivities including a Countdown to Midnight Celebration and a Pixar Party.

    With the start of every new year, I love to consider what we can do that represents the courage we bring to face new challenges and the hope we embrace for new possibilities. As you Start Your Year at Walt Disney World Resort, consider activities that reflect the kind of year you hope to live. Know also that in year's past, the international pavilions in EPCOT celebrated the coming of the new year and guests could enjoy a special dinner in World Showcase Pavilion. 

    Russa, standing in the midst of midst of the magic on a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort would certainly bring some happiness to my family. Having visited just after the start of a new year, I can say that we loved getting to see the holiday decorations up in the parks and resorts. The good news is that there is still plenty of happiness at the Walt Disney World Resort. Sending you a touch of extra pixie dust as you plan an unforgettable return to a world of magic!

    Magic and memories,
