Well, Disney fans! Disney has seemed to have had a glitch that has quickly been corrected and we’re thrilled about the news! We previously reported that a recent update to the Walt Disney World calendar showed that EPCOT would no longer be remaining open until 12:00 am-midnight as it was listed before today. Instead, today the EPCOT calendar for December 31, 2021, showed a closing time of 10:00 pm. It seems like Disney either had a change of heart or quickly corrected the error.

Harmonious the new nighttime spectacular located in the World Showcase Lagoon is still listed with a 6:30 pm showing on December 31, 2021, at the time of writing this.

Two other Walt Disney World Resort Parks including Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are both still scheduled to stay open until 12:00 am, meaning there will be three Parks ringing in the New Year at Walt Disney World! The fourth Disney Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, will close at 7:00 pm while Disney Springs is currently on the calendar to remain open for Guests until 11:30 pm.
