    Hi I'm planning to go disney world in few weeks. I'm curious that disney world is open on New year's day. Thank you!

    Hi Hyelim,

    Great news: Walt Disney World is open 365 days a year, including New Year's Day! The period around the holidays is among the most popular at the parks. On January 1, I'd suggest getting to the parks early if you are not too tired from ringing in the new year, so that you can have time for all the fun. 

    The parks will still be decorated for the holidays and full of holiday spirit, so you should have a great day.

    I highly recommend making one advanced dining reservation for the day if you can. And, if you are buying your tickets in advance, don't forget about FastPass+, which allows you to reserve your spot in line for three attractions in advance. Even if you wait until you arrive to buy your tickets, you can still take advantage of FastPass+ in the parks using one of the FastPass+ kiosks or the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Hyelim. Have a fabulous time kicking off 2017 at Walt Disney World!
