    My family and I will be visiting Magic Kingdom on New Year's Eve. We plan to stay all day. Is the Fireworks Dessert parties that are available on other nights also available on New Year's Eve? Or will we need to stake out a spot pretty early?

    Hi, Jennifer!  Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Celebrating New Year's Eve at Magic Kingdom Park sounds practically perfect in every way!  I cannot think of a more magical way to ring in the new year than by watching a breathtaking fireworks display light up the night sky above Cinderella Castle.  I have not heard for sure if the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace will be offered on New Year's Eve, but fireworks parties often do take place on holidays and during special events, so it is certainly possible.  Be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog to hEAR all the latest announcements regarding New Year's Eve events and any other important Walt Disney World Resort news.

    Currently, the Walt Disney World website is showing dates for the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace through the end of November.  Some events like this do not open for booking until much closer to the date, but others become available further in advance.  I booked the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace for my family's trip that we are taking this month, and I was able to make that reservation 180 days in advance, along with all of my dining reservations.  I would advise you to keep checking the Walt Disney World website for available dates, especially once you near that 180-day mark.

    I do hope that you will be able to experience the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace.  It really is such a great way to add a little extra pixie dust to your Magic Kingdom Park visit.  What could be better than enjoying some delicious desserts while the perfect fireworks viewing spot is reserved for you?  If by some chance this party is not available, be sure to also look into Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise.  I'm not sure if it will be offered on New Year's Eve, but if it is, this could be a great alternative activity for you to consider.

    If we can help you with any other questions as you prepare for your trip, please visit us again.  Have a magical day!
