    We are coming with 3 kids, ages 2-5 on 12/31-1/1. We will be staying at Paradise Pier, will we be able to see fireworks from our room? Lastly, we were bringing $800 for 2 days, is this enough for 2 days or will the park be pricier due to the holiday? TIA

    Hi there, Raven!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for your seaside retreat stay at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel. You are just going to love being on Disneyland Resort property because of the wonderful perks like Extra Magic Hours, amazing dining, and friendly Cast Member service.

    While firework viewing from your room isn't guaranteed, I do recommend heading up to the impressive rooftop pool deck at your hotel as you can see wonderful firework views from here. On select nights when Disneyland Park has fireworks, you can not only see the delightful show, but hear the music and dialogue up here as well. I would make sure to arrive early on these nights to grab a spot. This unique view is one of the best perks of staying at this hotel.

    When it comes to spending money on your vacation, you can budget to spend as much or as little as you'd like depending on how much food and merchandise you plan on purchasing. Prices won't necessarily increase just because of the holidays, but item prices are always subject to change at any time. I like to save money wherever I can by drinking complimentary ice water instead of soda and bringing small snacks or having breakfast before I get to the parks. I also tend to eat at more Quick Service versus Table Service restaurants. Some of the best souvenirs and keepsakes are actually pretty inexpensive like pressed coins and unique custom silhouettes from the Silhouette Studio on Main Street, U.S.A.

    I hope this helps, and I'm so excited you will get to ring in the New Year at the Happiest Place on Earth!
