It’s hard to believe 2016 is already coming to a close. Have you made your New Year’s Eve plans yet? For those of you looking to welcome 2017 at Disney California Adventure park on December 31, we have quite a party planned for you. Here’s just a sampling of what’s in store:

  • Hollywood Land – Join us in front of our brand-new stage at the end of Hollywood Blvd. all night long for tunes spun by world-famous DJ Roueche and special performances by Hollywood Records artist Olivia Holt. You don’t want to miss the countdown to midnight here, with rooftop fireworks and “Auld Lang Syne.”
  • Paradise Bay – To mark the arrival of 2017, Disney California Adventure park is hosting the “Party of the Year!” At night, the waters of Paradise Bay become a sparkling winter fantasy with two scheduled performances of the all-new “World of Color – Season of Light” at 8:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. Leading up to midnight, DJ Wendy keeps the energy building with an awesome dance party around the lagoon. Our New Year’s countdown culminates in a musical celebration punctuated by fountains, pyrotechnics, fireballs and lasers!
  • Cars Land – Choose to welcome in the new year country style under the neon lights of Cars Land with appearances by the Kelly Rae Band and DJ Trevor.

It all promises to add up to the biggest party of the year!


  • I agree. This seems like a let down from past years. Mad T is gone too and looks like there’s nothing but DJs and a few vocal performances.

  • Wow, so little live music, guess I’ll have to join the big crowds in Disneyland instead of the lower capacity California Adventure this year. I ABSOLUTELY prefer live musicians over a DJ any and every day. Really disappointed that Tim Gill and his band won’t be at Carthay Circle. We’ve enjoyed them for the last three years.
