Friend's houses, clubs, downtown events – these are all tried and true ways to ring in the New Year. It's exciting to be part of an event that spares no expense in celebration of yet another rotation around Mr. Sun. Plus, if you're lucky, that New Year's kiss may turn into an all-night…kiss. But there are other ways to enjoy the extravagance and magic. For those in relationships, engaged, married, or just having a good time, try a New Year's at Walt Disney World.
Disney is world-renowned for their attention to detail and dedication to creating an unforgettable experience for its guests. Their New Year's offerings cater to a variety of people, from families and the tame to the footloose and fancy-free. While poor Walt's ideas about a park without alcohol have all but drained away (Magic Kingdom is a holdout, kinda. They serve alcohol, but it's limited to select restaurants inside the park), its warming presence does invite those looking to have a looser time at the House of Mouse.
Basically, if you want to eat New Year's away, they offer that option. If you want to enjoy extraordinary fireworks and projection shows, you've got it. And if you want to escape for a New Year's full of Mickey and that person who rocks your socks off, WDW will accommodate you.
