Anaheim is spilling over with New Year’s Eve parties, so if you’re traveling to Southern California during the holidays, the toughest choice you’ll have to make is what party to attend! The White Wonderland lets you slip down the rabbit hole with live music featuring Paul van Dyk, Benny Benassi and more at this two-day event held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Tickets start at $75, and it’s the only two-day fiesta in town.
Of course, the Disneyland Resort is world-famous for the Ring in the New Year Fireworks Spectacular. An incredible fireworks display amidst Christmas attractions and decorations is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Tickets start at $80 with special discounts for younger children.
Try the New Year’s Bash with Kenny Sara and the Sounds of New Orleans at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen located on Disneyland Drive. The Cajun soul of Louisiana is in town with “musical gumbo” from Kenny Sara. Of course, authentic NOLA cuisine is also on the menu—plus, admission is free!
Maybe New Year’s Eve with ATB is more your speed, with German DJ ATB spinning music all night long. The trance/EDM party takes place at The Observatory on S. Harbor in Santa Ana. This 21+ show has tickets starting at $100 and promises to keep the party going well into the New Year.
