Starting at 8:00 PM on December 31, the "Disney Countdown to Midnight" event gives guests the opportunity to welcome the New Year at an extraordinary soirée held within the convention center at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
The fun begins as you head to the heart of the party in the Fantasia Ballroom, where you can indulge in an assortment of libations—including adult beverages for Guests 21 years of age and older—before moving and grooving to dance tunes from our interactive DJ, featuring music spanning from the ‘60s to today.
Then, it’s time to marvel at a stunning display of culinary sorcery, as the chefs create incredible “cheftainment” behind animated shadowboxes. You’ll delight in seasonal bites from such signature restaurants as California Grill, Flying Fish Cafe, Jiko – The Cooking Place and Narcoossee's, before you’re invited to soak up the high-energy sounds of the New Year’s Eve Bash Band.
Later, stroll outside to the Porte Cochère to sip champagne as the famous New Year’s Eve fireworks spectacular lights up the night from Magic Kingdom park!
Throughout the evening, you can capture memories with a variety of themed photo ops and backdrops.
It’s all remarkable—and it’s all included with the price of your ticket. Tickets are limited, so be sure to act soon before this special event sells out.
