    Are the Disney Resorts doing something for the NYE

    Hi Trina! Welcome to planDisney.

    Ringing in a new year at the Walt Disney World Resort is a bucket list item for me! I think it would be so magical to start a brand-new year in the most pixie-dusted place - what a way to set the tone for 2022! I'm delighted for you and your family that you'll be experiencing it all in just a few short days.

    At this time, we don't have much official information about New Year's festivities planned at the Disney Resorts Collection hotels, though I'm sure there will be some kind of celebration! In past years, special menu items at dining locations, fun recreational activities, and photo ops have popped up at the resort hotels. When you arrive, you'll likely see signs posted around the resort hotel advertising New Year's activities and you're welcome to ask at the front desk. 

    There is a premium event taking place at California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort. A Golden New Year's Eve in Wine Country is an epic celebration in honor of Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary, and includes character greetings (Baby New Year Donald?! Squee!), food stations, wine pairings and cocktails, and fireworks viewing. This experience costs $700 and can be booked by calling (407) 824-2013. 

    Be sure to read the Disney Parks Blog, as they may share news about New Year's events around the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs in the coming days. Due to the phased reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort, some activities are paused or modified, so take a look at the Returning to a World of Magic information to be prepared for your visit. 

    The Park Hours show Fantasy in the Sky fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park and Cheers to the New Year: A Sparking Celebration at EPCOT on December 31. If your resort hotel has a fireworks view, you could plan to grab a cupcake or drink and enjoy the show from your resort grounds (or, if you're really lucky, your window!).

    Trina, I'm wishing you a very happy new year and an unforgettable New Year's Eve at Walt Disney World Resort. As you count down the days to your visit, your pals at planDisney are here to help with any questions you have, so please come back and see us. 

    Wishing you much magic,
