Make Plans Now For Ringing in 2012 At Walt Disney World

As the familiar song goes, what are you doing New Year's Eve? How about ringing in 2012 at Walt Disney World? Recently, Disney put out the scoop on what to expect at the parks during the last few hours of 2011.

The Magic Kingdom will celebrate by offering two fireworks shows on December 31, 2011: a holiday-themed "Wishes" show at 8:30 p.m. and a 11:15 p.m. showing of "Fantasy in the Sky." It looks like a countdown to the new year is also planned.

Epcot is holding two "Illuminations" for guests at 7:00 p.m. and 11:42 p.m. (yep, the time is that specific) to help ring in 2012.

Guests will have two chances to catch the ever-popular "Fantasmic!" show over at Disney Hollywood Studios. Showings are set for 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. while a midnight "Lights! Camera! Happy New Year!" fireworks display is also planned.

There are also some opportunities for guests to get caught up in the New Year's excitement outside of the four main parks. Cirque du Soleil in Downtown Disney is offering 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. showings of "La Nouba" that include a special trading pen for attendees to either of those shows. The Disney Boardwalk are is also offering an adult New Year's gathering at the Atlantic Dance Hall that will feature a champagne toast at midnight. That party runs from 8 p.m. til 2 a.m. and is for guests ages twenty-one and over.

If you are planning a trip to WDW to celebrate the beginning of 2012, you can also check with your Disney resort as many of these have various entertainment options for New Year's Eve.
