Ring in 2019 at one of your favorite spots on earth, Walt Disney World. Family-centric or over 21, WDW has you covered for world-class New Year's Eve celebrations.
New Year's Celebrations in Frontierland and Tomorrowland
Bust a move at a pair of DJ dance parties and then catch the phenomenal Fantasy in the Sky fireworks display. Grab your partner and twirl the night away to toe-tapping tunes in Frontierland, or blast into the new year at a lively celebration featuring futuristic beats in Tomorrowland. The parties will happen on December 30 and December 31, from 7 PM until midnight. So you can do both! End your night (and cool your heels) while you watch the fireworks that start at 11:50 PM.
Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks
Head to your favorite viewing spot to watch this beloved spectacular light up the night sky–December 30 and December 31, beginning at 11:50 PM. If you need to make it an early night, additional shows take place both nights at 6:30 PM as well so you and the family won't miss a thing!
Celebrations Around the World Showcase
Ring in several New Years across the world. As the clock strikes midnight in each country's respective pavilion, you'll hear a festive announcement and see a colorful burst of fireworks. If you're looking for lively dance parties, stroll around the World Showcase for an array of themed events in different country pavilions. This is a New Year's Eve party literally on a global scale!
Epcot's Epic Fireworks Shows
Hang out by the World Showcase Lagoon to see Illuminations: Reflections of Earth starting at 11:40 PM, followed by a countdown to 2019 and a special New Year's Eve display.
Experience a festive variety of live entertainment and enjoy one of many diverse restaurants at this waterside promenade. While there won't be any fireworks displays here, there will be good music, good food and good times to bid farewell to 2018.
Atlantic Dance Hall
Don't want to stay at the parks? Head over to Disney's BoardWalk and kick off a brand—new year with a tasty meal and rocking music all with a dash of Disney magic. Cut loose to your favorite tunes–provided by a live video DJ–while counting down to the new year. This festive celebration includes fantastic views of the Epcot fireworks, party hats, horns, a delicious light-bite menu, two beverage vouchers and a champagne toast at midnight. 21 and over with a valid ID to enter. 8 PM to 2 AM. Advanced reservations are recommended (407) 939-3463.
If you prefer to keep the night a bit more low-key and family-oriented, there are several seatings (5 PM to 6:30 and 8:30 to 10 PM) to enjoy a wonderful New Year's Eve multi-course, prix fixe menu surrounded in an atmosphere of elegance. Experience Amuse, 1st Course, 2nd Course, Entree and Dessert all inspired by Chef Tim Majoras. Reservations are highly recommended (407) 939-3463.
