    Planning a trip during the week of 1/17/22. Would like to know of any special events or activities happening (like evening fireworks, etc) that we may want to plan on attending aside from regular park attractions.

    Hello, Michael and welcome to planDisney! I’m so glad you’re hEAR planning for your upcoming trip.

    The cooler temperatures of January make for perfect park days and you might even get to wear a sweatshirt on Main Street, U.S.A.!

    Michael, I’m thrilled to tell you all about the newest shows and nighttime spectaculars in honor of Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary: Disney KiteTails at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Harmonious at EPCOT and Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park. I was lucky enough to see Harmonious and Disney Enchantment this past week and there is so much to love from these fireworks shows. While I won't offer any spoilers, if you "dig a little deeper" you might be able to "go the distance."

         planDisney tip: times for Fireworks & Nighttime Spectaculars are available to view on the calendar showing park hours.

    Now, since you’re visiting in January there is a good chance you’ll be in time to experience the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. While dates haven’t yet been announced for this event, last year the festival began January 8th. I encourage you to bookmark THIS PAGE and periodically check back for updates.
    I also recommend checking THIS PAGE that shows all current entertainment. With the recent announcement about the return of Indiana Jones at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and more character experiences, you just never know what else will be available by January!

    Michael, I hope this helps as you’re continuing to plan and dream about your upcoming trip. The Magic of Disney is waiting for you and I hope you relish every second of your vacation. Please come on back to planDisney with any other questions.
