    Hi!! I would like to know if there is something special for December 31st (new year’s), and also until what time the park will be open for this day. Thank youuuu!!

    Season's greetings, Paula!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for bringing us your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. I'm excited to hear that you're planning to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year! Paula, the halls are usually decked at the Walt Disney World Resort from early November through early January. Get ready to be amazed by all the festive fun during your holiday visit!

    At the time of writing, details have not been released for any special events or celebrations taking place at the Walt Disney World Resort on New Year's Eve. Paula, I'd keep a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the Walt Disney World Resort website for any exciting announcements about New Year's Eve offerings! Currently, theme park hours have only been published through mid-November. I'd expect theme park hours for late December to be published on the Hours & Events Calendar sometime next month, so be sure to check back soon.

    While offerings are always subject to change, it's very likely that the beautiful, festive holiday decorations will still be up during your visit, Paula. Viewing this stunning décor is one of my favorite parts of any holiday visit - especially the incredible gingerbread displays at some of the Disney Resort hotels! In past years, my favorite display (at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa) has been available through the first few days of January, so I'm hopeful you'll be able to experience it!

    Paula, I ho-ho-hope you've found this information helpful! I'm wishing you an unforgettable holiday visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. If you have any additional planning questions, please feel free to return to planDisney again! We're here to help you make the most of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Warm wishes,
