    Is there a special event for the 31st of December?

    Hi Bernard, welcome to planDisney! 

    So, as you count down to your vacation, you’re thinking about how to count down to the New Year. Bernard, official New Year’s Eve festivities at Walt Disney World Resort have not been announced yet. In the past, Magic Kingdom Park had a live DJ and fireworks to entertain you until midnight. In EPCOT, there have been celebrations around the World Showcase, so you can travel the world to welcome the New Year. If there are any special events offered this year, they will be announced on the Disney Parks Blog, so keep checking as your trip gets closer. 

    Bernard, don’t forget, that you will still need a theme park reservation for your visit in December. If you have a Standard Theme Park ticket, I recommend deciding which theme park you plan to visit on December 31, 2023 and making your theme park reservation as soon as possible. Theme park reservations are subject to availability. If you have a Park Hopper ticket for December 31, 2023, you need to make a theme park reservation for the first park you plan to visit, then you can park hop after 2:00 PM ET. 

    I hope bringing in the New Year at Walt Disney World Resort fills your 2024 with extra magic, Bernard! If you have any future questions as you continue planning your vacation, please come see me again at planDisney!
