The Disneyland Paris New Year’s Eve Party was said to be “A Glittering Celebration You’ll Never Forget” including a chance to ring in the new year with spectacular delights, exclusive late-night access to the attractions, and a dazzling fireworks display.

Unfortunately, as COVID cases continue to increase in France, the French government is enforcing new health and safety guidelines. Disneyland Paris reported, “Following the latest announcements from the French government, beginning Saturday 18 December, regardless of vaccination status, those wishing to travel to France from the UK will need to meet criteria outlined by the French authorities that the travel is essential. Currently, leisure travel does not meet such criteria. To see the full list of what constitutes essential travel, exemptions, testing, quarantine, and other travel requirements we invite you to refer to official sources for travel requirements.
