One of the best spots for the end-year festivities for the whole family remains the all-time favorite of Hong Kong Disneyland. The theme park and its hotels traditionally host an array of Christmas events, which culminate on December 31 with the New Year's Eve countdown party in front of the Castle of Magical Dreams. Kids get a chance to welcome the year to come with Mickey Mouse or Anna and Elsa from Frozen, while adult Marvel fans can hang out with some of their best-loved superheroes. The party ends with a breathtaking fireworks display.
