    What time are the Epcot fireworks on New Year's Eve and how long do they last? I am trying to plan dinner with my family and don't want to miss the earlier fireworks.

    Hi Anca!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    What an exciting time to be visiting Walt Disney World Resort - New Year's Eve!!, and Epcot is the perfect location, especially around World Showcase with the eleven different countries, from Mexico and Norway all the way around to the United Kingdom and Canada, there is sure to be somewhere to enjoy while counting down to the New Year.  I cannot wait to see the new Epcot fireworks spectacular - Epcot Forever - which made its debut appearance only a few weeks ago.  According to the Epcot calendar, there are two showings of Epcot Forever on 31st December 2019, and the scheduled times are 6.30pm and 11.40pm.  Please know that times are always subject to change, so check your My Disney Experience mobile app for the up-to-date times on the day, or pick up a Times Guide as you enter the park.  The show will last between around 11-15 minutes.  If you are planning on making dining reservations for that night, I would strongly urge you to do so as soon as you can.  It is bound to be very busy and bookings may become hard to find.  All dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, online or by using My Disney Experience.  It's worth noting that Quick-Service locations generally do not require advance reservations.  You may like to scroll through the Epcot Table-Service restaurants, and the Epcot Quick-Service restaurants to see what is available.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your New Year's celebrations at Walt Disney World Resort.
