New Year's Eve
Jayne starts off, by talking about some things you could do out of the parks but to still remain inside the Walt Disney World bubble. Then, Michelle looks at some of the high-end offerings, which come with a range of fireworks views, characters and food options.  

Lower Cost Ideas 
Simplest approach would to be enjoy your resort hotel and all that it has to offer. Or perhaps a venture into Disney Springs might be an option; all the hustle and bustle of a New Years Eve but without the expense. Lots of counter service options available to celebrate the New Year festivities with.

Or perhaps this is the ideal time to take a Monorail tour of the Magic Kingdom resorts; a selection of lovely lounges and yummy counter service foods on offer and an opportunity to watch the evenings fireworks from a beach!

Park Packages
There is a range of options being offered by Disney and we have given brief details of them below.
