UPDATED – New Years Eve at Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios – Photos and Videos

Happy New Year!

I had a long but great day at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios for New Years Eve! We were able to catch 2 different fireworks shows, and I thought the fireworks at the Studios were amazing! We started first at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, catching a set of Mulch, Sweat and Shears. They were there from afternoon until the fireworks show (below left and right).

Walking between the two parks was a breeze, there were not many people between Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot (especially during the day), nearly everyone was inside a park. The view is always pretty on the path that starts from the Studio (below, left). The Atlantic Dance Hall was getting ready for it’s New Years Eve celebration (below, right).

In Epcot, an open gate allowed a lot of guests to enter an area that wasn’t meant for anyone. Dan Cockerell and Jim McPhee were working on getting an area in Canada set up so they could move everyone (below, left). New Years Eve hats and horns were complimentary for visitors (below, right).

Most music at Epcot is techno, like what you’d find in clubs. China was one of the locations for dancing, with fire and a dragon that breathes smoke (below left and right).

Italy was also used for a dance party, with laser lights and similar music (below left and right).

Papo’s Groove at the American Gardens Theater was the one dance party that was very different than the rest – with a Latin groove and a live band (below left and right).

World Showplace (the former Millenium Village) opened it’s vast restrooms to the public, as well as offered a buffet dinner for guests (below, left). The fountain stage included a DJ as well (below, right).

Fireworks from the Magic Kingdom were visible from World Showcase (below, left) and the countdown to New Years was on Spaceship Earth (below, right).

Disney’s Hollywood Studios had a totally different atmosphere, with great music by Mulch, Sweat and Shears as well as a DJ in between their sets (below left and right).

The guys played until close to midnight, then counted down before singing a variety of rock songs to the Lights! Camera! Happy New Year! fireworks! I was very, very impressed by them! (below left and right).

The street was packed with guests before and after the countdown and fireworks (below, left). Many stayed for Extra Magic Hours and to dance – including to many 80’s hits – well after the New Year was rung in (below, right).
