    Hello, hope this inquiry finds you guys well! I’m very excited as my girlfriend and I are visiting Disneyland for New Year’s Eve and Jan 1st and we’re wondering about hours of operations for the parks, will they be open until late? (2am in some blogs)

    Hola Francisco! Thanks for dropping by planDisney.

    What a special time to plan a visit to Disneyland Resort. I know you're going to have the most magical time with your girlfriend. I bet you are super excited and planning out all the festive things you want to do and eat during your stay. If you're not following the Disney Parks Blog, do! It's the official source for all park news, and there will be a lot of new and fun things to experience during this season.

    You'll want to check the Entertainment Schedule for park hours. Currently, the calendar doesn't extend to New Year's Eve and Day. It operates on a rolling basis and only extends into early December at the moment. So, I can't say for certain what the operating hours will be, however, you'll know soon. Keep checking back!

    Even if they haven't officially been announced yet, you can expect park hours will be later on New Year's Eve thanks to the festivities. The fireworks are definitely the main attraction on that special night, but you'll also experience dance parties, live entertainment, and all the usual Holidays and the Disneyland Resort festive fun taking you late into the night.

    Check out the festive treats to keep you going through a long day and night of fun available in the parks by following Disney Eats. Once you're sugared up, my can't-miss for the season is the holiday overlays on select attractions. My favorite is "it's a small world" Holiday in Fantasyland at Disneyland Park, which also happens to be a great location from which to enjoy the nighttime entertainment. You might pick it as your spot to enjoy the New Year's Eve celebration.

    Here's to a magical New Year!
