Disney World has released park hours through January 2, 2021 and sadly, guests will not be able to ring in the new year inside a Disney theme park.

As of now, the following operating hours will be in effect December 31, January 1, and January 2:

  • Magic Kingdom
    • 9:00 am – 7:00 pm
    • 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    • 10:00 am – 7:00 pm
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    • 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Those park hours will go into effect November 6, 2020. That is also the first day of the holiday celebration at Walt Disney World.

Disney has not announced any special plans or events for New Years Eve or New Years Day. Since the parks will be open just past sunset, we are hopeful some nighttime spectaculars may return.
