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 two fireworks shows at two of its theme parks. 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
Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks at Magic Kingdom 11:50 pm
Important note, this same schedule applies to December 30th, giving guests a chance to celebrate the new year a day early
Electrical Water Pageant on Seven Seas Lagoon near Magic Kingdom – 8:25 PM to 10:30 PM
EPCOT Fireworks “Harmonious” – 6:30 PM
New Year’s countdown fireworks at EPCOT will be shown starting at 11:54PM
Disney's Hollywood Studios “Wonderful World of Animation” – currently not scheduled

Disney Restaurants with Fireworks Views (reservations required)

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.
