NEW YEAR'S EVE 2022 IN THE THEME PARKS

Important note: Walt Disney World requires a park pass reservation for all of its theme parks. Magic Kingdom and EPCOT will most likely book to capacity. Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando do not require reservations, but parking and the parks themselves can reach capacity. It is best to head to any theme park on any big holiday as early as possible and plan to spend your whole day, and night, there.

Walt Disney World has not officially announced any special fireworks for New Year's Eve this year. However, both major fireworks shows, Disney Enchantment and Harmonious are scheduled for much earlier than normal that day. So, it stands to reason Disney will have an additional New Year's Eve fireworks show that night. EPCOT tends to have a party environment during New Year's Eve with dance parties and DJs in many of the World Showcase pavilions, and hats and horns being distributed to guests in the evening.

Walt Disney World New Year's Eve
Magic Kingdom Fireworks “Disney Enchantment” – 6:30 PM
Electrical Water Pageant on Seven Seas Lagoon near Magic Kingdom – 8:25 PM to 10:30 PM
EPCOT Fireworks “Harmonious” – 6:30 PM
Disney's Hollywood Studios “Wonderful World of Animation” – currently not scheduled

Disney Restaurants with Fireworks Views (reservations required)

Universal Orlando New Year's Eve
Universal Cinematic Spectacular – performance time TBD
Classic Albums Live: The Beatles “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band” at Hard Rock Live
All of Universal Orlando’s hotels have their own special New Year’s Eve celebrations for 2021, listed towards the middle of this page

SeaWorld Orlando New Year's Eve
Fireworks start close to midnight with a grand finale ringing in 2022 right at midnight
SeaWorld for New Year's Eve is a top pick for date night because they are the only theme park that offers reserved seating for their fireworks.
Purchase the New Year's Eve Reserved Show Seating and get reserved seating to the Winter Wonderland skate show, then stay in your seats for the New Year's Eve fireworks.
