Thanksgiving and Christmas haven’t happened yet, but chances are, you’re already thinking ahead and starting to make plans for New Year’s Eve. If you’re going to be ringing in 2015 at Walt Disney World Resort, here’s a rundown of some of the entertainment that’s planned for this year’s celebration.


  • Epcot – It’s a night-long party throughout Epcot, with unique entertainment including a DJ and light show at the Future World Fountain Stage, dancing under flame effects and a smoke-billowing dragon in China, a British blast to the past in United Kingdom, Euro-pop and lasers in Italy, and a Latin band and DJ on the America Gardens Stage. Cap it all off with one of two showings of “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” fireworks, at 6:00 p.m. or 11:40 p.m., followed by a countdown and pyrotechnic salute to the new year.
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Exclusive specialty drinks and food items are available throughout the night, as the Event Stage comes alive with an energetic DJ and performances by Mulch, Sweat & Shears. As midnight approaches, the band takes the stage to count down to 2015 and plays live during a jaw-dropping fireworks spectacular.
  • Magic Kingdom Park – You can get a head start on the festivities, with a special New Year’s Eve eve presentation of “Fantasy in the Sky” fireworks at 11:50 p.m. on Tuesday, December 30. The same show will be repeated on December 31.

  • this article is just copied and pasted, verbatim, from a Disney Parks Blog post; including the photograph. does that strike anyone else as odd?

  • “d”
    I believe WDWNT just wants to make sure you see the article in case you don’t visit the Disney Parks blog.

    I actually visit here first before going to the Disney Parks blog.

    • were that the case, I think WDWNT should adopt the convention used by other sites and visibly quote passages from the article, then include a “hat tip” and link to the original piece, acknowledging their source and that it’s the writing of another person. that isn’t the case, however, suggesting that this is an attempt to pass off the work as their own. sadly, there are a number of articles on this site that do the same thing– taken from the Disney Parks Blog, lucasfilms.com, or D23, to name a few.

      I haven’t seen any of those sites give permission for their work to be used without due credit, so this is less about promoting other sites and more about lazy, questionable journalism, as far as I can tell. Like you, I like when sites aggregate content from other sources so we can get it all in one place, but that doesn’t give them permission to copy and paste without credit as if it’s their own work.

  • Dec. 30th is DD’s Sweet-Sixteen. We’ll be at M. K., dinner ADR at BOG, and special surprise for Fireworks Pre-Show.
    N. Y. E. at Epcot, probably at China as DD loves anything Asian themed.
