Ringing in the New Year at Disney

Celebrating the New Year is a big deal especially the end of a decade. Disney has huge plans in store for New Year’s Eve festivities around the parks! If you plan on attending the parks on New Years Eve you will want to get there early as the parks can fill up on these special occasions rather quickly.

Here’s what’s in store…
