It’s hard to believe another year has almost come on gone, but 2018 is indeed drawing to a close. Soon it will be time to sing Auld Lang Syne and toast 2019! I love New Years. Dressing up and hitting the town to begin a brand new year with those I love most are some of my fondest memories. If you’ll be ringing in the New Year at Disney Parks, your options for an unforgettable evening are nearly endless. In fact, with so many possibilities the only question is- how can you possibly decide?!?
New Year’s Eve at Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa
Napa Rose is offering two different ways to celebrate. The earlier dining option is family friendly and fun for the whole family! Enjoy a delectable 4-course meal by Chef Andrew as he prepares his renowned wine country feast. The decor will match the evening and provide fun surroundings that will be sure to get everyone in a festive mood. This early option is available for a short time- 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm so if this is a must do for you, you’ll want to book it ASAP.
If a more adult evening is more your style.- book you’re evening starting at 8:15 pm where you’ll be able to partake in some unforgettable fun with a reception featuring live music and Champagne. Later, at 8:45 pm, you’ll be invited to take a seat and treat your senses to an amazing Napa-style 5-course tasting menu. You can even pair your tasting experience with a flight of world-class wines! And for dessert, you’ll enjoy the unique Sugar Piñatas, exclusive to Napa Rose! After you’ve eaten your fill it’s time to party! Pick up a party hat and party favors and hit the dance floor for a countdown to midnight, and dance the night away until 1 am.
