Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- My best friend & I are thinking about coming to Disneyland to celebrate New Years this year; I wanted to ask if anyone has done it before or if they do anything special for NYE; we are both over the age of 21 & will not have any children with us.

- Hey there Tommy,
Disneyland sure knows how to celebrate, and New Year's Eve is no exception. Concrete details have not yet been announced, but if history repeats itself, there's sure to be lots of excitement in both theme parks, Downtown Disney, and even over at the Disneyland Resort Hotels! You can take a look at past year's events here.
For starters, Disneyland and California Adventure always stays open late on New Years Eve and you can bet there'll be a fireworks show that will surely rival any you've seen in the past! There is always extra entertainment, a special parade, and many other surprises! Over at DCA, dance the night away at the Mad T Party and expect live music and a Champagne toast at Paradise Gardens! If you plan to be in either park on NYE or New Year's Day, please be aware that these are two very busy days. The parks will most likely reach capacity and close to new guests, so be sure to arrive early and plan to stay.
Downtown Disney is home to several restaurants with fun bars, so two adults could find lots to get into, especially on New Years Eve! I imagine there will be no shortage of excitement and possibly even some live outdoor music!
For an extra special start to your evening, consider a delicious dinner at the award-winning Napa Rose restaurant located in the Grand Californian hotel. Each year, this highly acclaimed restaurant offers a special New Year's Eve dinner event that is limited to two (2) seatings, one at 5:00 and one at 8:30 pm. The first seating consists of a 4-course meal for $100/person while the later seating costs $195/person and begins with a Champagne reception in the lounge followed by a 5-course meal with live music, party favors, and a "midnight moment." This experience can be reserved by calling Napa Rose at (714) 300-7170.
