New Year's Eve fireworks at Disney Springs
It is possible to catch glimpses of Disney's New Year's Eve fireworks from Disney Springs. There are no fireworks at Disney Springs itself, but a few locations make it possible to see some of the fireworks at Disney's theme parks.
Our guide to viewing Disney fireworks outside of the parks includes locations at Disney Springs.
Disney Springs Parking
Expect parking garages at Disney Springs to fill up by midday on New Year's Eve.
Lime Garage and Orange Garage are the most popular. Grapefruit Garage is across the street and has a convenient pedestrian bridge. Finally, the surface parking lots near Cirque du Soleil are usually overlooked.
Just know these surface lots are at the far end of Disney Springs, and the West Side, and the rows are not as clearly marked as the ones in the garage. So, take extra note of your car's location.
Wear comfortable shoes, you can expect lots of walking on this busy evening.
While you're on Disney property enjoying New Year's Eve, consider stopping at one of the Top 5 Disney Hotels with the Best Christmas Decorations.
