Description And Comments

On New Year's Eve, Epcot puts on a second showing IllumiNations that is followed by an impressive fireworks display. Disney tries to time the show so that it ends by counting down the seconds until midnight and the new year, but it occasionally misses this goal. Still, the fireworks are great, and World Showcase is large enough that the large crowds may not feel as oppressive as they do at Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios.

Touring Tips

This is a once a year event, so stake out a spot well in advance of the show.
