    Will there be a midnight fireworks show at Epcot on New Year's Eve? MDE currently shows the Luminous show at 6:30 and nothing after that. Isn't there usually a big countdown fireworks show around 12:54?

    Hi Thomas! Welcome to planDisney!

    I can't think of a better place to celebrate New Year's Eve than at the Most Magical Place on Earth! With three out of the four parks staying open to at least midnight on this day, you'll get a chance to ring in the new year in style!

    At this time, Walt Disney World has not announced a special countdown fireworks display at EPCOT leading up to midnight. As you mentioned, Luminous The Symphony of Us is set to begin at 6:30 PM, which is earlier than normal. This leads me to suspect that a special display will take place later in the evening, although this has not been confirmed. Based on previous years, this has typically been the case along with other special entertainment around the World Showcase. I would stay up to date with the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements leading up to this day.

    The Magic Kingdom is set to host the Fantasy In The Sky Fireworks two times on this night. This is a special display that will take place twice on this night, first at 6:30 PM and the second viewing 10 minutes before midnight. Guests visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios will get a chance to celebrate New Year's Eve with the park staying open until midnight. It will also have two showings of Fantasmic! at 8 PM and 9:30 PM. Regardless of where you plan to visit, you should have plenty of opportunities to see some spectacular shows!

    Thomas, I hope you have a magical vacation! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
