How to celebrate New Year’s eve at Disney World for FREE!
For New Year’s eve, we made no plans even though we knew we would be in Orlando for my husband’s work trip. At the last minute, we decided to go out to the Boardwalk Resort at Disney World. This is an area where Disney put in a man-made lake and built multiple resorts, restaurants, clubs, stores, a boardwalk,
We started the evening by getting ourselves on the waiting list right away at the Greek restaurant there, Kouzzine by Cat Cora. We didn’t make reservations in advance and were not sure if we could get in to eat anywhere. The wait turned out to be only 45 minutes! So to kill time we walked around and enjoyed a juggler performance
At almost exactly 45 minutes we sat down to a delicious dinner. Our chef was a fellow Red Raider!! Our kids had a three-course dinner complete with ice cream sundaes for only 8.99! They were wonderful when it came to dealing with my daughter’s food allergies. Every single restaurant on Disney property is set up to handle allergy issues.
Overall it was an awesome evening that I will remember forever.
If we could have made it until midnight we would have had quite the view of the fireworks but our two-year-old just couldn’t make it, so at 11 we caught a bus to try to get back to our car. By midnight we were in downtown Disney. From where we were near Disney Quest facing the parking lot we could see fireworks going off at two of the parks and behind us at a third park. They went on forever! Icing on the already perfect evening.
