Disney Vacation Guide to New Year’s Eve

Where could you expect to find a bigger and better New Year’s Eve party happening than at the Walt Disney World Resort?

Nowhere, we say.

If you love Disney fireworks on a good day, just you wait until New Year’s Eve – one of the biggest fireworks evenings of the year. The sky lights up with bigger and better displays adding to the mood of celebratory cheer evident throughout the park.

New Year’s Eve in the Magic Kingdom

Take in Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and if you can, check out the Mainstreet Electrical Parade as well.

The “Wishes” fireworks display happens at 8:30pm (with a special holiday overlay) and Fantasy in the Sky rings in the New Year with a bang later, at 11:50pm.

Treat yourself to an overnight stay at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa where you get a special four-course meal at Narcoosee’s (where there’ll be a DJ and balloon artist!) and special fireworks viewing after dinner.

New Year’s Eve at Cirque du Soleil

Head to Downtown Disney’s West Side for Cirque du Soleil La Nouba for a memorable way to ring in 2012. There will be a special finale for this New Year’s Eve performance, specialty drinks will be available for purchase, and collectible trading pins will be given out to you and your guest.

New Year’s Eve at DisneyQuest

Play your favorite DisneyQuest games, dance to the music of a DJ and celebrate the coming of 2012 with noise makers and confetti! You’ll also get a bite to eat with your ticket (pizza, hotdog, burger or wrap with chips and a drink).

New Year’s Eve at Atlantic Dance

Toast the New Year at Downtown Disney with a glass of champagne and an awesome Video DJ dance party! Your ticket gets you access to a private balcany to view the Illuminations show.
