It Looks Like Disney World Theme Parks Won’t Be Open Late On New Year’s Eve
For many of those visiting Disney during the Holiday Season, ringing in the New Year at the theme parks or at a special Disney dining event is high on the must-do list. However, with COVID-19 cases expected to continue through the Winter it looks like Disney has made the decision to cut late night theme park hours on New Year’s Eve.
If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog, you’ll know that theme park hours have just been posted into January 2021. Upon looking closely at the hours (which are still reduced) we noticed the shorter holiday schedule:
As you can see from the images above, for December 31, 2020, Magic Kingdom (which usually does a special evening fireworks display for New Year’s Eve will actually be closing at 7pm. At EPCOT it is more of the same with and 8PM closure. Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios things will be wrapping up at 7:00pm and Animal Kingdom is earlier still with a 5:00 pm closure.
Now, it should be noted that hours can change but It does look like Disney is planning their winter schedule with an abundance of caution and assuming that health and safety measures including attendance caps and social distancing restrictions will still need to be in place as we start the New Year.
Earlier this year we announced that Disney has cancelled both the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties and EPCOT’s Candlelight Processionals for the upcoming Christmas Season. Walt Disney World has yet to make any official statements about New Year’s plans. This is something we’ll continue to follow closely here at MickeyBlog and we promise to keep you posted!
