    We will be at California adventures on New Year’s Eve. Are there any special events we can attend that day?

    Welcome to planDisney, Shawn. Thanks for stopping by to share your question. Ringing in the new year at the Disneyland Resort is one of my bucket list items that I have yet to cross off. I'm so excited (and slightly jealous) that you are planning to do it this year!

    There will be plenty of festive offerings and celebrations happening throughout the Disneyland Resort on New Year's Eve. Nothing official has been announced with any details for the day, however, I would keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any updates. You can also continue to check the Entertainment Schedule at the Disneyland site to see what entertainment options will be offered around the park. The schedule doesn't quite extend out to New Year's Eve, but hopefully it will be updated in the next couple of weeks.

    My friend celebrated New Year's Eve at the Disneyland Resort last year and had a wonderful time. Party favors like festive hats were given out to guests celebrating to make it a little more special. I also recall there being a few countdowns that happened earlier in the evening in case you have little ones that might not make it to midnight. For the past couple of years, there's been a countdown in Disney California Adventure Park at Paradise Gardens Park and I'm hoping this will be happening again this year. There was lively music and dancing throughout the night leading up to the countdown. 

    The Holidays at the Disneyland Resort will also be in full swing and you can spend the day eating your way through the Disney Festival of the Holidays. The best way to enjoy this event (in my opinion) is with a Sip and Savor Pass to sample as many eats and treats from the Festive Foods Marketplace. You can even share the pass with family and friends. 

    While we don't have certain answers right now, Shawn, I hope I was able to share some information that is helpful. Fingers crossed we see some updates and details on the schedule of events for the day soon. Come back to visit us with any other questions you might have.
