We hope you all enjoyed your Christmas, folks! We certainly did because nothing says the holidays like the magic of being with family and friends for this time of year. That magic shouldn’t be packed up and stored up just yet though as another holiday is upon us now! In just a few short days, we’ll be celebrating the magic of a new year and what better way to celebrate than with your family at the Disneyland Resort.
We’ve done it a few times before and although it may be a crowded at such a time, you’d be happy to say that you did it even once! If you want to avoid the crowds and enjoy a more special evening as you ring in the new year, our friends at the Disneyland Resort have put together some special events this year that you can book starting today. They include:
- 2 Napa Rose celebrations (beginning at 5:30 PM and at 8:15 PM) with the first celebration including a four-course dinner costing $125 per person. The second celebration is a little more livelier and includes a dinner dance party with party favors, balloons and five-course menu costing $220.
- Look for menu specials in Disneyland park at Carnation Café on Main Street U.S.A. (surf and turf with shrimp and sirloin steak); at French Market (roasted pork chop with Calvados applesauce, braised greens and sweet potato soufflé); at Blue Bayou (a seafood pot pie); and Cafe Orleans (flat iron steak with bone marrow demi-glace, garlic mashed potatoes and acorn squash).
- Flo’s V8 Café at Disney California Adventure park will offer meat loaf with Coca-Cola barbecue sauce and two sides.
- Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel has a prixe fixe, three-course menu for $65 that includes spinach salad with warm bacon vinaigrette, filet and lobster and chocolate paté.
- Storyteller’s Café at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa has a prixe fixe two-course dinner with with porcini-rubbed rib-eye with scampi-style prawns, mashed potatoes and Cabernet demi-glace, and a duo of dark chocolate and Bailey’s crème brûlée with espresso cookies for $29.99.
- And who can resist a New Year’s Eve cupcake? Especially the New Year’s Cupcake with dark chocolate cake, Nutella filling, Belgian white chocolate frosting with black and silver decorations, silver disco dust, a chocolate Mickey, chocolate truffle and bow tie? That’s a party on a plate! Look for it at Jolly Holiday Bakery,Fidler, Fifer & Practical Café and Pacific Wharf Café at Disney California Adventure park, and White Water Snacks at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
