Epcot Entertainment for New Year's Eve


In less than one week, we'll celebrate the arrival of 2014 and it looks like Epcot will be alive with a variety of entertainment to help ring in the new year! 

Here is a quick synopsis of what to expect:

Park Hours
Future World 8:00 am to 1:00 am
World Showcase 9:30 am to 1:00 am.

There will be EXIT bypass gates available during the evenings at the World Showplace, Mexico and next to China from 5:30 pm to 12:30 am. This should help (a little) with crowd flow and control.

Temporary Bars will be available on the promenade at Mexico, China, Italy, Germany, American Adventure, Japan, Morocco, France and Canada.

Hat and Horn distribution will be from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm in Future World West, Future World East and The American Adventure Pavilion in World Showcase. To help cut down on long lines, appoint one member of your group to pick these up for you. Everyone will appreciate it.

This is one of the BUSIEST times of the year at the Walt Disney World Resort so please be prepared for CAPACITY CROWDS at any of the theme parks. You will likely encounter "phased closings" during this time. You can read all about them by clicking on the link below.
