  • Ragalan Road sounds like a great place to ring in the new year! Great music, good dancers, good food, and a great atmosphere!

  • The best place in all of Downtown Disney to ring in 1938 (or 2013) would be 5189 Hill St. on Pleasure Island with all the wacky Adventurers of Merriweather Pleasure’s Adventurers Club!
