The New Year's Eve Dinner that takes place in Epcot's World ShowPlace building is an annual event (obviously) and features buffet style dining with a few Disney-themed model "vignettes" placed around the room for taking photos of and with. The buffet options have included a good selection of American style cuisines, and so picky diners should have no difficulty finding something to eat.

Stations include a "starters" table that usually features prepared salads, flatbread, soups and various breads. Hot food offerings include savory items such as fish, chicken and pork in keep-warm trays (the specific variations on the proteins change from year to year, i.e. sometimes bbq chicken breasts, sometimes citrus glazed chicken breasts, etc.).

There are also many hot side-dish items such as mashed potatoes, green beans and mac & cheese. There are usually one or two carved meats available with on-stage carving (i.e. as cast member carves to order at the end of the buffet tables). A slightly lower children's table is available with chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, and other goodies that might be more palatable to younger guests.

Quite a few dessert options round out the food selection, most of which fall into the "small pastry" category... assorted eclairs, cookies, key lime and pecan tarts, along with one or two warm desserts such as bread pudding with an anglaise sauce of one type or another.

Soft drinks, coffee, tea, and juices are included in the price, and a cash-bar is available for those that are looking for something a little more adult to drink. The adult beverage options include a couple of wines, beers, and possibly a specialty cocktail.

It's important to note that while this "dining option" is available from around 3pm until 10pm, it is essentially (after you sift through all the marketing copy) just a buffet. There are no shows, no live music, DJ's, or character appearances. You are also not really expected to get in at 3pm and stay until 10pm. More or less, the World ShowPlace is turned into a one-night buffet restaurant.

Please click though our "visit their site" button for specific pricing and availability information. Note, the link may only work as we approach the holidays. While the event has taken place since 2000, Disney has a habit of removing all information about this dining option from their website after it has concluded each year.
