Welcome the New Year with live fireworks from Walt Disney World

December 31, 2018, 7:02 PM · Updated Who's ready to say goodbye to 2018 and welcome 2019?

Celebrate the arrival of the new year by enjoying a replay of tonight's epic New Year's fireworks celebration from Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, online right here:

The Orlando and Southern California theme parks have been slammed this week, with wait times routinely approaching an hour for relatively minor attractions and passing two hours and beyond for the major ones. Five hours for Flight of Passage? Four hours for Radiator Springs Racers? Three hours for Forbidden Journey? If that sounds good to you, hop on line! You'll have plenty of theme park friends to keep you company. But the crowds for the New Year's Eve fireworks are typically even more packed.

I used to work audience control on New Year's Eve in the Magic Kingdom, and while it was amazing, no one anywhere near the castle had space to move after about 10pm. So whether you made it down to Orlando for the holidays or not, you can enjoy the show a lot more simply by watching with us online.

Happy new year, and thanks for reading Theme Park Insider!
