    What would you suggest to do for new years eve for 4 adults and two teenagers?

    What a perfect way to bring in the New Year by celebrating at WDW! If you'd like to celebrate from one of the parks, know that they will be incredibly crowded. If I were to visit one, I think I'd opt for Epcot since it can handle crowds better with its larger size, & many of the restaurants celebrate the new year at the time that their country actually does. You can also get a glass of bubbly for the adults to toast each other at midnight.

    Another idea is to celebrate at Downtown Disney with a showing of Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba, which often has special packages available for New Year's Eve (nothing yet, though). And there are plenty of restaurants at Downtown Disney to begin your evening with a lovely dinner. 

    If you'd like to veer away from the crowds, dinner at the California Grill at the Contemporary Resort is always wonderful with its breath-taking views. Similarly, you could eat at the Polynesian Resort then watch the fireworks (they are at 8:30 pm and 11:50 pm this year on NYE) from the beach or dine at the Grand Floridian then celebrate in the lobby. 

    Finally, the teens (mine do!) may enjoy the dinner show Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue at Ft. Wilderness or the antics at the Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge. 

    If you are making plans for this year, I would encourage you to make reservations soon since the restaurants fill up quickly.
