Have you made your list of resolutions yet? I usually do that about two hours before midnight. There’s something about the new year that allows us to to start with a clean slate. I haven’t had the pleasure of ringing in New Year’s Eve here at the resort, but I’ll put that on my resolution list for next year. Some guests make it a tradition to celebrate at the Happiest Place on Earth. In fact, the first New Year’s Eve Party at Disneyland park was on December 31, 1957. Here is a look New Year’s Eve celebrations from various decades here at the Parks. Cheers to 2011!


  • Thanks for sharing! I have been going every New Years Eve since 1999 and been in in front of the castle for at least the last 8. There is usually hosts/entertainment on the castle and a few years, they have taken pictures of the crowd below. I am not sure if that was for their own personal use but I always wanted to see a picture of the crowd, err guests, taken from atop the castle.

  • What can we look forward to for this New Years Celebration?

  • Wow! You guys sure know how to throw a New Year’s Eve party! I’ve never been to Disneyland though… I have seen some really awesome parties at Walt Disney World though!
