Disneyland/New Years Eve at DCA


Hello MaryJo,

My family and I are planning a Disney vacation around New Years time. We would like to stay at Disney California Adventure park to countdown to the new year, as I am aware that at 12:00 there are fireworks and a small water show to ring in the new year. I was wondering - do we need a FastPass to witness the New Years countdown? (I know we need a FastPass for WoC) or is anyone welcome to find a spot and watch it?

Hi Nuel,

You won't be needing a fastpass for the New Year countdown.  However, I would plan on hanging out in the area pretty early on so that you are in a good spot.  New Years at Disneyland is so much fun. I did it in my younger years. :)

Best Regards,

Mary Jo

I live fairly close to the Disneyland Resort, and have an annual pass, so I visit the Disneyland Resort quite often.


I have visited the Disneyland Resort several times each year for several years, and have stayed in each of the hotels. I have a pretty good understanding of the parks, hotels, and Downtown Disney.
