    Are there any recreation/activities at the Disney resorts during New Year's Eve for those who don't want to go to the parks?

    Hello Andrea! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    As a fellow Brazilian, I love planning unforgettable moments for family and friends! New Year’s Eve magic does not happen exclusively at the theme parks, so get ready to ring in 2019 with special celebrations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Events for this year are yet to be announced, but last year pixie dust was definitely sprinkled all around with amazing options to choose from. Three magical parties took place at Disney’s Contemporary Resort: “Disney Countdown to Midnight”, “Pixar Party: A New Year’s Eve Celebration”, and “Down in New Orleans: A Disney New Year’s Eve Dining Experience”. Disney’s BoardWalk offered a New Year’s bash at Atlantic Dance Hall, as well as dinner and dancing at Flying Fish. Families could also join Minnie and Mickey at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort for Mickey’s New Year’s Eve BBQ!

    I highly recommend checking the Disney Parks Blog for updates on New Year’s Eve events. In addition, you are welcome to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel in Portuguese to submit questions in our beautiful language!

    Thank you for stopping by, Andrea. I hope your holiday celebration at the place where dreams come true is as magical as the New Year’s Eve fireworks display at Copacabana Beach!

    Best Disney wishes,
