With limited crowds due to the reservation system for COVID-19 safety, New Year’s Eve at EPCOT was significantly different than any time in its past. No dance parties or fireworks, and closing well before midnight, meant that it was a calm and relaxing place to do an early ringing in of the new year. The EPCOT Christmas tree, which is normally removed to allow for additional space for fireworks viewing, was still removed ahead of New Year’s Eve, even without the need for fireworks viewing space. Overall, aside from audio announcements wishing everyone a Happy New Year, it could have been any random 2020 night at EPCOT.
Here’s some of the peaceful images our field team took as they took a leisurely time to ring in the new year.
Happy New Year from the TouringPlans team. Stay safe and healthy in 2021!
