New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show at the pier at Marina Del Rey

Marina Del Rey is having its annual fireworks show which is totally free. You can go to Chace Burton Park or to the Fishermen’s Village and grab your spot and enjoy the show over the marina water, which is a delightful experience. We recommend bringing a blanket and maybe some coffee or hot cocoa, and make sure you get there a decent amount in advance to secure parking and your viewing spot.

Disneyland is always magical, but New Year’s Eve there is definitely something that you’ve got to try at least once if you’re a fan of the place.

For starters, the park is open until 2 A.M., so you’re getting a bit more for your money’s worth. There also will be special fireworks shows: one at 9 A.M. and one right at midnight to ring in 2023.

Lots of restaurants and eateries in the park will also have special menus for all you Disney foodies out there.
