    Hi! How about new year's Eve at Disneyland? Any special event that night? Thank you.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Diana!

    It’s so exciting that you will be ringing in the New Year at the Disneyland Resort! You can most certainly expect a special fireworks show to celebrate 2019. In the past, there have actually been two shows – one earlier in the evening and one that ends right at the stroke of midnight. Be sure to check the official schedule for this day when it becomes available online in the coming weeks. Additionally, in the past there have been some special meal offerings for New Year’s Eve. These included a special buffet at Disney’s PCH Grill along with exciting character appearances and a few signature restaurants offered special menus for that night. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements for this year’s offerings. Otherwise, regular dining reservations can be made for New Year’s Eve now, so I suggest booking a meal as soon as possible. New Year’s Eve can be an incredibly popular time to visit the Disneyland Resort so you’ll most definitely want to reserve dining in advance. 

    You will also want to purchase your theme park tickets in advance and plan to show up at the parks early. Because it is possible that Disneyland Park could reach capacity on this day, you will want to make sure you are inside the park early in the day and plan to stay there. Also, plan to use the Disney FASTPASS Service or add the Disney MaxPass option to your tickets to help save you some time waiting for attractions. 

    If you have any other questions about your upcoming visit, please stop by again. Happy planning!
