What are you doing on New Year’s Eve at Walt Disney World? If you are not sure, Disney has shared an update on the New Year’s Eve celebrations. Read on for all of the details!
New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve has been a popular event at Walt Disney World and Walt Disney World Resorts.
In fact, often times, the week of New Year’s has been considered to be “insane” if you follow our Crowd Calendar.
With many people off work and school for the holidays, it’s a popular time to visit the parks. Just look at all of the long wait times that took place on New Year’s Eve last year! Would you wait an hour to ride Winnie the Pooh?!
When I think of New Year’s Eve celebrations, I think of music, lots of crowd activity and especially fireworks. However, it’s 2020, need we be reminded?
Chances are, we will not be seeing all of the special events, fireworks and other celebrations that usually take place.
Today, Walt Disney World has given us an update on plans for New Year’s Eve this year.
We have previously shared extended park operating hours for all four theme parks through much of December.
Hours for December 6-12 can be found here.
December 13-19 park hours can be found here.
December 20-31 park hours can be found here.
However, on New Year’s Eve, all locations will close prior to midnight as the theme parks continue to follow health and safety measures to promote physical distancing.
All four theme parks will close prior to midnight on new year’s eve
Hours for Disney Springs will be from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.
Walt Disney World Resort Celebrations
Walt Disney World has confirmed that while the celebrations will be different than what we are used to, fun and festive activities will still take place! Guests will be given more details on the celebrations and any fun events upon arrival.
Guests staying at resorts will be able to view pre-recorded firework displays and other holiday offerings on T.V. from the comfort of their hotel rooms. This most likely confirms that the normal firework displays in the theme parks will not take place.
If guests would like to purchase a New Year’s Eve party basket, those are also available! Read more about how you can pre-order baskets for special occasions here.
More information can also be found from Disney Floral & Gifts here. Baskets may be ordered online or via phone at 407-939-4438.
