Walt Disney World always brings their best for the holidays and New Year’s Eve 2017 will be no different, but you don’t have to be there to see it all. On Sunday, Magic Kingdom was so crowded that it hit a phase closure, and that means it is going to be quite insane for the fireworks tonight. If you don’t want to brave the crowds or simply can’t be there, Disney won’t forget you as you’ll be able to watch them on a live-stream as they happen.
There will be all sorts of things happening around Walt Disney World tonight, and that includes lots of firework displays. Over at Disney Springs, there will also be the final performance of Cirque du Soleil: La Nouba, and guests around the world will be able to experience it as well.
As reported by the Disney Parks Blog earlier this week, they will live-stream the full special fireworks performance of “Fantasy in the Sky” to ring in the new year from Magic Kingdom. You won’t have to worry about facing the hordes of people on Main Street or around the park as the magic is piped into your home.
For those wanting to see all the excitement, it is really quite simple.
