Epcot was ablaze in color, music and fun with four different parties on New Year’s Eve.
We have a synopsis video here. The night includes two performances of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. The night starts with fireworks, and then rings in the new year with a thunderous grand finale.
New Year’s Eve is the one night of the year where guests can take bypasses backstage and quickly get between Test Track and Norway-China, or between Imagination and the Showcase Pavilion next to the U.K.
At noon, the line for Spaceship Earth was continually filling in at this point, near the granite monoliths of the Epcot entrance plaza. The line continued ahead, and then zig-zagged on either side of the attraction in expanded roped areas.
