With all of the excitement of the approaching holidays, New Year’s Eve sometimes gets forgotten. I know that I’m guilty of waiting to think about December 31st until after the 25th! At that point, it’s usually too late for me to get something fun planned.
For those of you that want to celebrate Disney style, there are several great options this year, and now is the perfect time to plan for them. Walt Disney World has celebrations filled with music, spectacular fireworks and delectable culinary delights this New Year’s Eve:
Atlantic Dance Hall at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort
Are you ready to kick up your heels? You can swing in the New Year at Atlantic Dance Hall at the Boardwalk. They will have a great, Big Band style party with hats and horns, a viewing of the EPCOT fireworks at midnight. Toast the new year with champagne. A VIP experience, which includes access to an exclusive VIP section with a bartender and dessert bar is also available.
Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
As many of you know, Chef Mickey’s has an awesome buffet every day. In addition to traditional buffet items, you can bring in the new year with extra helpings of holiday favorites on New Year’s Day such as carved and smoked pork, collard greens, ham hock, black eye peas, corn bread and seasonal fruit cobbler. All of this plus Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip and Dale!
For a romantic evening with that someone special, enjoy spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom fireworks in this elegant gala dine-around style event. They are featuring food stations set up throughout the restaurant. A complimentary bar is available, in addition to wine poured by the glass until midnight. There is a dress code for this event. The guys need to wear a dinner jacket (tie is optional) and women should wear a dress or pants suit. I say, get out tux and your best dress and trip the lights fantastic! How many opportunities do you have to dress to the nines?
Ole! You can celebrate a ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! with live music, premium tequilas, festive décor and a breathtaking view of fireworks. After the show, you will be presented with a 5 course dinner featuring authentic Mexican cuisine and yummy drinks. Que gran manera de celerar! (What a great way to celebrate!)
If you’re looking for an excellent steak, look no farther! Le Cellier offers the finest in Canadian cuisine. New Year’s Eve will feature a special four-course meal includes a choice of appetizer, entrée and dessert. Lunch will also be served on New Year’s Eve from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. I’m just hoping that they have their awesome cheddar cheese soup!
Vous aimez France? I do. I love France. Especially in Epcot! You can celebrate and delight in the culture, flavors and elegance of France for a festive prix-fixe menu on New Year’s Eve. Be sure to take a stroll down the “rue” and check out some of the finest shops in EPCOT. If you’re looking for a new scent for the new year, try Plume et Pallette and La Signature.
This glittering New Year’s Eve celebration offers delicious local and global seafood selections, mouth-watering steaks and brilliant views of the fireworks. The location is perfectly perched at the edge of the lagoon. The ambiance is gorgeous and the food is delightful!
Are you ready for the ultimate dining experience? At Victoria and Albert’s you will indulge in a ten-course New Year’s Eve meal, featuring eight savory courses and two dessert courses. A nine-course wine pairing with eclectic and low-production wines is also available. V&A has earned a AAA Five Diamond Award since 2000! This will be one of the best dining memories that you make in Disney World.
At World Show Place in EPCOT, you will feast on a custom New Year’s Eve Dinner buffet. Photo opportunities and classic Disney tunes make this a great experience for the whole family! This would be a great place to eat while visiting all of the countries around the lagoon. Be sure to catch the night show, Illuminations.
