It’s almost time to write those resolutions and bid 2017 a warm adieu! New Year’s Eve is a time to reflect on the past and revel in the great big beautiful tomorrow, and there’s no better place to do that than at Disney Parks. Let’s take a look at how you can celebrate at our international resorts.

The New Year’s Eve Party at Disneyland Paris will be a dazzling affair celebrating the greatest hits of 2017. Along with favorite attractions, a special Incredible New Year’s Eve Parade combines the most memorable parade moments this year, including Halloween, Christmas and the 25th Anniversary Disney Stars on Parade.

Mickey’s Christmas Big Band will perform smooth jazz and your favorite characters will dance the night away at Goofy’s New Year’s Eve Dance Party. When the clock strikes twelve, the sky will be filled with a cascade of light and color during the New Year Celebration Fireworks. It will truly be an unforgettable way to toast 2018.

As you may remember, Tokyo Disney Resort will ring in the Year of the Dog during a five-day celebration. You won’t want to miss the New Year’s Greeting parade at Tokyo Disneyland or the harbor show at Tokyo DisneySea, which feature Mickey, Minnie and Pluto. You can also try plenty of Pluto-themed treats around the resort.
