    Will there be fireworks at Magical Kingdom or Epcot on December 31, 2023? If yes, are there special tickets required in addition to the regular park ticket? Thanks!

    Happy New Year, Ying! I can’t think of a better way to welcome the new year than by being at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    While plans have not been officially announced, I can share that it is very likely that Magic Kingdom Park will host Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks on December 30 and December 31, 2023. Traditionally, this spectacular fireworks show lights up the sky over Cinderella Castle two times per night– 6:30 PM and 11:50 PM to countdown to the new year! Again, this information is based on practice over the past many years at Magic Kingdom Park.

    To enjoy the Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks, you will need a valid theme park admission ticket for Magic Kingdom Park as well as a Disney Park Pass reservation for that park. There is not a special admission ticket for December 31.

    To enter EPCOT on December 31, 2023, you will just need a valid theme park admission ticket for EPCOT and a Disney Park Pass reservation for the park. There is not a special admission ticket. EPCOT will be a fun place on New Year’s Eve! The brand-new fireworks show, Luminous The Symphony of Us, is scheduled that evening for 6:30 PM. Nothing is confirmed at present, but EPCOT usually holds a countdown to midnight fireworks show a few minutes before the clock strikes twelve!

    More information regarding New Year’s Eve will most likely be released soon! Keep checking the Walt Disney World Resort website as well as the Disney Parks Blog!

    Happy Planning!
