    I have park hopper tickets for Disneyland on 12/31/23, what dining events are available for that night?I’ve been checking to see if plaza inn has a new years eve dining package but have not seent one.Also what events will be going on in both parks on 12/31

    Season's Greetings to you, Jasuara, and welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting that you have tickets to the Disneyland Resort on the last day of the year! I can't think of a more epic way to ring in the New Year than by being in the Happiest Place on Earth as the clock strikes midnight. 

    New Year's Eve Dining Event reservations are understandably difficult to obtain. So far, they've announced a New Year's Eve Fireworks Dining Package at the Tomorrowland Skyline Terrace and a New Year's Eve Gala at Napa Rose (this event is Sold Out). You are correct that there is also usually an event held at Plaza Inn but, as of this writing, nothing has been announced yet. I would recommend checking back frequently because, if Disney does open reservations for a New Year's Eve Event, reservations will go quickly. Last year, they held a "Roaring 20s" themed dining experience! 

    Even if you aren't able to secure reservations for a Dining Event, I'm sure there will be plenty of other festivities going on throughout the Parks! Be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog to be kept up to date on the latest news and announcements. Last year, ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2023’ was filmed at the Disneyland Resort (along with other places around the country) as midnight approached. There will be multiple spots to gather for the midnight countdown (Rivers of America, "it's a small world", Sleeping Beauty Castle) and you'll have a couple of opportunities to enjoy New Year's Eve Fireworks at Disneyland Park. You can check the Daily Events Schedule to help you plan your day around the entertainment.

    I'm glad that you have the option of Park Hopping, but New Year's Eve can get quite busy, so I recommend picking one Park and staying in it as evening approaches. The Parks can close sometimes due to capacity, but this is a rare occurrence and has not happened since the reservation system was put in place.

    Jasuara, I'm excited for you and wish you a magical and thrilling visit to the Disneyland Resort this New Year's Eve! It'll be a core memory for sure! If you have any more questions, please stop by again anytime. You're always welcome at planDisney. Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
