“Hiya Pal!”

Ringing in the new year on Disney property is a blast! However, New Year’s Eve is also one of the busiest days of the year. The Magic Kingdom and Epcot typically close for max capacity by 10 am! This is a day that you need to have a plan, and your plan is either to get to the parks ASAP and pack your patience for a very very long day or splurge for one of the dining packages below. The dining packages offered to ensure your entry into Epcot or a comfortable view of the Magic Kingdom New Year’s Eve Firework show along with a three to five-course meal option offered at select locations.

La Hacienda de San Angel New Year’s Dinner. This may be the best offering at Epcot for New Year’s Eve in my opinion. The views for the firework show are perfect. The dining event starts at 9:30 pm and lasts until 1 a.m. A five-course Prix-Fixe dinner starting with a margarita, tequila pairing, appetizers and a mariachi band to welcome you. Surf n’ turf with special wine pairing is the main entrée, and of course, desserts and liqueurs will be offered and paired with a fabulous view of IllumiNations holiday show. The cost for this dinner party for adults is $280.13 and children {ages 3-9} $73.46.
