    Are there any NYE activities or celebrations at any of the resorts? We're staying at Fort Wilderness and know that we can see the Magic Kingdom firework but wanted to know our options.

    Hi Aubrey!

    You will be happy to know you won’t have to go far for some wonderful New Years Eve festivities during your Walt Disney World vacation. Most resorts try to keep their celebrating to the lobby or an enclosed area such as a ballroom as many guests who come will not want to be involved and will want to be in bed long before midnight.

    At the Fort Wilderness Resort you will not only be outside but you will be celebrating all along the wonderful beach there. They will have a Beach Bash starting around 9pm and lasting until 12:30am and it will include games, food , and other fun activities. Plus you also get the benefit of watching the Magic Kingdom fireworks show without the crowds. Since the last hurricane the fireworks are even more visible then before as some of the vegetation on Discovery Island disappeared! 

    I am sure you will have a great New Year’s Eve and you won’t have to battle crowds that night either.
