Are you staying in a villa near Disney for New Year? If so you’ll want to know what’s going on. Of course there’ll be all the usual attractions and rides to keep you busy but there’ll also be a few ‘special’ events you might want to know about.
Want to get in the mood? Epcot could be just the place. At various world showcase pavilions you’ll find DJs throughout the evening of New Year’s Eve so you can dance your way around the world. Of course the seasonal IllumiNations: Reflections of the Earth show will light up the skies at 7 p.m. and 11.42 p.m. The latter show ensures you see the New Year in under an exhilarating show of lights, lasers and water all synchronised to music.
At the World ShowPlace you can feast on a buffet inspired by the classic Disney films Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 between 4.30 – 10.30 p.m. Make your dining reservation to ensure you don’t miss out. The buffet costs $68.67 for adults and $44.37 for the youngsters. You’ll need park admission too so best check out our special attraction ticket deals.
