    Has anyone tried to reserve the special NYE event at California Grill: Alice's Whimsical World of Wonderland? Both my husband & I have tried calling but only get voicemail. We have both left messages but have not received a call back in a few days

    Hi Rachelle,  

    Thank you for reaching out to planDisney to inquire about this amazing event for New Year’s Eve at California Grill, located atop Disney’s Contemporary Resort. I understand the stress of uncertainty if you’re interested in reserving this very special evening, so I’m happy to share some guidance.

    The website for California Grill has details for this new event and instructs you to call them directly at (407) 824-2013 for reservations. I also called today and confirmed this is the correct number but leads you to their voicemail instructing you to leave a message. I spoke with a Cast Member at the Walt Disney World Resort who shared they are not privy to when the event team will be making those callbacks but advised you to leave another voicemail for reassurance while you wait. I know this is frustrating to not know if you have a spot, but please know full payment of $799.00 per person (includes tax and gratuity) is required to secure your attendance, so you will be contacted for payment and details of your party once they finalize their guest list capacity for this magical evening. California Grill is only open for dinner on regular evenings, so perhaps also try that phone number again during their typical operating hours in hopes someone may be available to speak to directly.  

    I am wishing on every star that you’re able to attend this fantastic event as desired, Rachelle! It sounds absolutely incredible, with food stations including chilled appetizers, wood-fired pizzas, sushi, hot seafood, grilled and rotisserie meats, sweet treats, and cocktails. The view from the top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort is nothing short of spectacular and ringing in 2024 with their included champagne toast gazing at fireworks over Magic Kingdom Park is sure to bring good tidings for the new year ahead.

    This year’s theme of “Alice’s Whimsical World of Wonderland” sounds like a truly festive time, with a touch of whimsy and storytelling on theme with this classic animated Disney film. This exclusive event was announced just one week ago, so I’m hopeful you’ll receive a callback or be able to connect with them directly very soon.

    Please let us know how else we can help you make the most of this special visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth to close out 2023 and look ahead to a sparkly future.

    May all your dreams come true,
