    I'm going to arrive at Disney hotel on Dec 31st 2023, if I make a reservation, Can I enter to Epcot at 5pm? We want to enjoy the atraccione and the new years eve, is that possible?thank you

    Happy New Year, Gabriela! I can’t think of a better place to ring in the new year than at the Walt Disney World Resort! You’ve selected a great Disney Park to welcome 2024! EPCOT is certainly going to be the center of attention! That park has been selected to host the Disney100 celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort! More on that in a moment!

    You can absolutely visit EPCOT on the day that you check in to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel! You will need valid theme park admission as well as a Disney Park Pass reservation for EPCOT. You can make your Disney Park Pass reservation in your My Disney Experience account. Here is my one caution…the Disney Parks are particularly popular on New Year's Eve. If any park reaches capacity, it is possible that you will not be allowed to enter, even with your admission and Disney Park Pass reservation. To avoid this, I recommend arriving as early as you can to EPCOT and plan on not leaving the park. If you can arrive earlier than your planned 5:00 PM arrival, I recommend doing so.

    Gabriela, EPCOT is the place to be! The Disney100 celebration is in full swing! Mickey and Minnie are now greeting Guests in their Disney100 outfits! Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana will officially open in October! Figment is now greeting Guests at ImageWorks! And, of course, you can ride some of the best attractions such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Soarin’ Around the World, Frozen Ever After, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, and The Seas with Nemo and Friends!

    Happy Planning!
