Join us at 11:50 p.m. EST on December 31, for a live stream of “Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks” from Magic Kingdom Park. We’ll be starting the live stream a few minutes before midnight to share some highlights of what to expect from our parks in 2020!
To watch the celebration, visit the Disney Parks Blog around 11:50 p.m. EST. The stream will be at the top of the page.
And in a special edition of our #DisneyWeekend series, we highlighted the “Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks” and other ways you can ring in the New Year with us at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Epcot will celebrate the New Year as it moves around World Showcase. Each international pavilion will offer a festive announcement when the clock strikes midnight in their country, and guests can enjoy live music at the America Gardens Theatre. And when the clock strikes midnight (EST), guests can gather around World Showcase to catch “Epcot Forever,” plus a special countdown to 2020.
Visit our earlier Celebrating the New Year at Walt Disney World Resort story for more details.
