    Are Fastpasses available for Illuminations on New Years Eve @ 11:40pm?

    Hi Melody,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Ringing in the New Year at Walt Disney World makes for a memorable celebration. We spent all of New Year's Eve in Magic Kingdom Park a few years ago, and it remains one of our most fun days among all our many trips.

    Looking at the online Park Hours Calendar for New Year's Eve, it appears that IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. and that the New Year's Countdown Fireworks are scheduled for 11:40 p.m. I am not aware of any FastPass+ selections for other nighttime spectaculars at Epcot other than IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. Keep in mind, though, that schedules can change, so my best suggestion is to keep an eye on the Park Hours calendar for updates, and also to follow the Disney Parks Blog for updates on special events. For example, you can check out some of the exciting celebrations planned for New Year's Eve at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

    Melody, here's wishing you a most Happy New Year's Celebration at Walt Disney World!
