Great New Year’s Eve Activities in Anaheim

January 7th, 2014

Bustling Anaheim, California, offers many special events during the holiday season to help you celebrate in style.  If you’re tired of the same old parties and are looking for a different way to ring in the New Year this year, you won’t be disappointed by spending it here in Anaheim.  disney1

Crash in the New Year is a fun and very different way to celebrate the New Year. When you have to sign a waiver, you know the party is going to be unusual! The OC Roller Girls have an open scrimmage to say goodbye to 2013 in a hard-hitting way.  This event takes place at The Rinks in Huntington Beach, and will provide a New Year’s memory that you’ll never forget!

If you’re looking for something simpler, yet classy and romantic, the New Year’s Eve Dinner Dance at the Crowne Plaza Resort is an excellent choice.  With an orchestra, a delicious meal, dancing and drinks, you can expect a little Latin flair for this glamorous gala.

There are also many different kid-friendly activities in the area, so the entire family can ring in the New Year together.  Legoland® offers a New Year’s Eve event at 6pm, so you can celebrate with the kids and still be done in time for a special adults-only evening.  You can enjoy live music, real snow and a Winter Nights Holiday Lights Show.

Another great option that offers family-friendly fun is the Pretend City Children’s Museum in Irvine, CA. With a Noon Year’s Party, the entire family can enjoy creating art together, dancing to music, and then a countdown complete with streamers and noisemakers. The event ends with a peaceful story time that is just in time for napping.

Of course, what would California be without Mickey and Minnie? There’s no more special way to ring in the New Year than celebrating at Disneyland® at their spectacular New Year’s Eve event.  And after your long night of magical celebration, you can walk across the street to a night of relaxation in your spacious and peaceful room at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Anaheim Inn.
