Exciting news, Disney fans! With the New Year right around the corner, Disney is preparing to ring in 2022 with the return of fireworks at Magic Kingdom! After a year of New Year’s Eve celebrations canceled in 2021, we’re thrilled to see fireworks returning. If visiting the beloved Magic Kingdom Park on December 31, 2021, or January 1, 2022, you’ll have a chance to watch not only one but TWO, fireworks spectaculars.
We previously shared the news that Walt Disney World Resort’s calendar shows it will have three Parks open until midnight for New Year’s Eve including EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is scheduled to close at 7:00 pm while Disney Springs remains open until 11:30 pm. We’re now learning more about Magic Kingdom’s extended hours and scheduled times which include the 50th Anniversary nighttime spectacular, Disney Enchantment, along with the special New Year’s fireworks for December 31 and January 1.
@GottaGoOrlando has reported, “New Year’s Eve fireworks are back at Magic Kingdom this year, with Fantasy in the Sky returning! MK Park hours have been extended to 1 am on December 30th & 31st, with the Fantasy in the Sky fireworks show scheduled for 11:50 pm both nights. Enchantment will be at 6:30 pm both nights.”
When the crowds couldn’t be together for New Year’s Eve to ring in 2021 at Disney, we held on to hope that New Year’s celebrations would return for 2022. Disney has yet to release details on the New Year’s celebrations to be held throughout the Disney Parks and Disney Resort Hotels, but we’ll be sure to share all the details as soon as Disney reveals them. In the meantime, here are Magic Kingdom fireworks from 2020 with “Fantasy In The Sky” so you’ll know what to expect from the show:
