  • Disneyland on New Years Eve

    Some friends are planning on going to Disneyland for New Year's Eve... I don't think I will be able to go, but I think I may have the option to, but I was wondering what Disneyland offers on New Years.

    I understand its usually packed... and I think they offer a different or at least a New Year's add-on to the fireworks or something...

    Is there anything else they offer? Do they give out party hats, commemorative pins, or anything else?

    Have any of you been on New Year's Eve? How was it and would you go again - would you recommend going on New Year's Eve?

    We go each year. They have fireworks at midnight, hats, party favors, different lands have different stuff, an extra Fantasmic, park is open to 2am, and my kids and I really enjoy it.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

        You should totally go! It's crowded as hell, but always such a good time! We've gone every year since I was a baby, and it's not New Year's Eve if we're not at DL watching fireworks. There is such amazing energy in the crowds, everyone is so happy and celebratory. Can't beat it!

          A friend and I went for the first time last year. It was insane but fun. It rained all morning or I guess I should say that it poured all morning. Once the rain let up about noon things got better. We really wanted to be in front of the castle at midnight so we brought a blanket and spread out about 4:00. We ended up staying until about 1:00 am. It took that long for everything to clear out. It was an amazing time. I do want to go back and do it again some day. But I think this year I am going to opt for my usual quiet at home celebration with friends. It is not something I need to do every year, but it was a blast.

              My dd's birthday is New Year's Eve. She wants to go for her birthday some year. I told her maybe for her 13th? Do you think that would be a good age to really enjoy it? Right now, she can barely stay awake for the 10:30 Fantasmic! show:sleep: (she's 8).

                New Years 98-99, 99-2000, 00-01, 01-02, 02-03, 03-04, 04-05

                It becomes a habit!

                Party Hats and Horns are handed out at designated locations
                at about 6pm. Eventually hats are placed on Walt and Mickey
                at the Central Hub, and sometimes other interesting locations,
                such as the gargoyles in the stretching room of the Haunted
                Mansion. Pirates of the Carribean often times becomes a game
                of toss a hat on a pirate late in the evening. Bands play at
                several locations throughout both parks: Tom Sawyer Island/
                New Orleans Square, Tomorrowland Terrace, DJ Music in front
                of Small World Holiday, in fact by early evening the traditional
                music of Main Street and the rest of both parks, makes way
                for party music ~ totally changes the entire atmosphere!!!!!!

                Don't expect to get on many attractions, just plan to have
                fun with friends.

                DCA has DJ Music playing at Paradise Pier and all the way up
                and down the parade route, in Hollywood, and sometimes Condor
                Flats.

                At 11pm at the central hub at DL, a tradition of gigantic beach
                balls being tossed all around begins, at this usually crowded
                location. Usually some special entertainment at the Castle
                or at least a countdown to New Years.

                If you want less crowded, DCA has some pretty good things
                happening, dl hub area is usually a total standstill, and don't
                plan on moving around that area very much. Small World area
                usually has a young crowd than the rest of the park.

                A few years ago DL was open until 3am, a couple years ago
                they changed to 2am. But it is always fun to go to pirates
                and see the people sleeping in there boats, just before they
                exit the ride.!

                Both Parks are really fun New Years Eve, but if you go to
                DL, plan for crowded standstill crowds all day. Still a lot of
                fun.

                If you want less crowds, but still fun, DCA is the better choice.

                  Thank you for the info. It made me totally giddy and made me think of Grad Nite with the party music you mentioned and people sleeping in their Pirates boats! haha. Sounds incredibly fun though and I hope I can go.

                        closer to the time I"m sure we can organize a MiceChat meet at some point during NYE. I'm only most likely going at this point, plans haven't been fully decided.
