    1. Boy, how things have changed! When I was a CM at the Magic Kingdom in the late 80’s, New Year’s Eve was one of two nights (the other one was Independence Day) where MK’s regular operating hours went beyond midnight, to 2am, and they had special fireworks.

      It would be unheard of to shut down for a private event (internal or external) on that day.
