    Hi, we are planning a last minute trip to Disney for Christmas to suprise our two boys (15,10). Wondering if we should eat New Years dinner at the Epcot buffet, or eat out of parks? Where's the best place for New Year's Eve. Thanks

    Hello Sheri and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    I took a quick look at the New Year's Eve Dinner at Epcot World ShowPlace, and I would make that reservation in a heartbeat! Not only does the menu look fantastic, it is located in Epcot, where I would definitely  want to be for New Years Eve. The firework show there is truly spectacular.

    I also noticed that the vast  majority of reservations that are still available are outside of the Parks. On super busy days- such as New Year's Eve, the Parks have been known to close due to filling to capacity. So, I recommend heading to Epcot early to enjoy your day there, dine at the ShowPlace and ringing in the New Year with a big bang!

    Have a great time, and....HAPPY NEW YEAR!
