    Hi. I will be on Disney for the New Years Eve celebration. On Jan 1 2015 I would like to take my family to a great restaurant. Which is the best choice outside the theme parks?? We are 4 adults and 2 kids. Celebrating NYE, Bday, late X-Mas, and more.

    Hello Omar!

    What a way to bring the New Year ... and so many celebrations to enjoy, too! Because the most popular dining locations book up as early as 180-days in advance, it is wise you are booking now. I conducted a quick search online for 6 guests on January 1st. You can consider the following available Advance Dining Reservations. If I were to choose my top 3 from this list, I would absolutely select 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. The entire family will enjoy the ambience, Hawaiian delicacies and live entertainment. Visiting Boma at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge allows your family to view the beautiful savanna before or after your meal. It's a magical resort with nighttime storytelling around a firepit and night vision goggles to watch the animals. If you're looking for a more upscale, signature dining experience, consider Narcoosee's at Disney's flagship resort, Disney's Grand Floridian.

    You still have great options available to you, Omar. I would encourage you to book now. You can always modify your reservation up to 24 hours prior to avoid any possible cancellation charges. You should also indicate your multiple celebrations on the reservation! Your server will be delighted to acknowledge them!

    Best wishes,
