The new surge COVID-19 Omicron variant is causing some concerns during the busiest travel week of the year, but it doesn’t look like people are canceling their vacations or plans as Walt Disney World Guests still packed in on Main Street, U.S.A. for the Disney Enchantment fireworks on the evening of Sunday, December 26.

Despite the new Omicron surge, many families kept their plans and are visiting Walt Disney World for the holidays. On December 26, the day after Christmas, Guests packed into Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom eager to see Disney’s new fireworks show, Disney Enchantment, which debuted on October 1, 2021 for Disney World’s 50th anniversary.
