Turning Another Year

Another year has come and gone, and it's time to turn the page to a new year.  This year will be the first time in several years where I will not be spending New Year's Eve at the Disneyland Resort.  But in the spirit of looking back, I wanted to share some photos from last New Year's Eve, around Carthay Circle.  Last year, the Tim Gill All-Stars provided jazz for the evening here.  It was a fantastic atmosphere and part of a great line-up of entertainment around Disney California Adventure that included the dance party of the recently halted Mad T Party as well as a special New Year's Eve version of World of Color right at midnight. 

Even though the Resort is notoriously crowded during this time of year, DCA still remains relatively calm. Of course, lines are much longer than during other times of the year, but the crowds never teeter toward that cattle herding stage where everyone is shoulder to shoulder and slowly waddling toward a common destination.  So for those who want to spend New Year's Eve at the Happiest Place on Earth, I do recommend ending it at Disneyland's sister park.  Get some Disneyland rides in the morning, then relax on the other side.  It will still be a wonderful way to ring in the new year!

Carthay Circle is lit up and decorated with balloons and a festive atmosphere.

The Tim Gill All-Stars provide jazz sets every hour.

There's great music, both vocal and instrumental!

The jazz music gives a classy feel to Buena Vista street, befitting the area's atmosphere.

The holiday garland around the land add to the celebratory ambiance.

Some guests even indulge in some impromptu swing dancing as they enjoy the vibe!
