With capacity caps still in place because of coronavirus, Disney is tweaking its plans for New Year’s Eve celebrations.
All 4 parks have extended hours on December 31, but there will be no specific evening entertainment such as a countdown, fireworks, or parades.
Disney Resort hotels will instead offer pre-recorded fireworks to stream and “party baskets” to ring in the new year.
