A Disney New Year
What happens at Disney during the New Year’s holidays? Well a number of fun things to be sure. Awesome dining and festivities, a New Year’s dance party, and dazzling fireworks!
The Countdown Experience
Starting at 8:00 PM on December 31, 2017, Disney Countdown to Midnight gives Guests the opportunity to ring in the New Year at an extraordinary event 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 adult beverages for Guests 21 years of age and older—before moving and grooving to dance tunes from an interactive DJ, featuring music spanning from the ‘60s to today.
Then, after a delightful culinary experience boasting “best-of-the-best” bites and wine pairings from such restaurants as California Grill, Flying Fish Cafe, Cítricosand and Narcoossee’s, you’re invited to soak up the sounds of toe-tapping music from Epic Live.
At midnight, sip champagne as the New Year’s Eve “Fantasy in the Sky” Fireworks Spectacular lights up the night from Magic Kingdom park! Fantasy In The Sky Fireworks was an opening day show for the Magic Kingdom in 1971, and was shown consistently through 2003, when it was replaced by Wishes. Featuring a selection of classic Disney songs, Fantasy in the Sky is still currently shown on New Year’s Eve in the Magic Kingdom, along with a special version of Wishes.
Throughout the evening, you can capture memories with a variety of themed photo ops and backdrops. And be on the lookout for Mickey and Minnie Mouse, who may stop by to celebrate!
It’s all incredible—and it’s all included with the price of a ticket.
There are a number of events at other Disney resorts
Raise spirits high as you clink glasses, reminisce about the past and welcome the new adventures of 2018! Happy New Year!!
