    Planning on going to the Celebration at the Top fireworks party at Contemporary this fall - online states complimentary valet parking is included with tickets. How early are we able to park at the resort?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jessica, and I love the way you plan! Celebration at the Top - Sip, Savor, Sparkle is a fabulous way to end a magical day at Walt Disney World Resort. And it sounds like you've done your research, so let's dig in and discover some specifics about this Enchanting Extra.

    As you've learned, complimentary valet parking at Disney's Contemporary Resort is included in this event. I spoke to a firecracker of a Cast Member who said you could arrive as early as you'd like at the resort; just be prepared to show your ID and party confirmation. You should be able to check in at California Grill about an hour before your scheduled party time, and I'd recommend taking advantage of every moment of this experience. The Disney fireworks parties I've done have had fantastic food and drinks, so come hungry, Jessica!

    Another tip I have for this particular party is to wear something festive. This is a Disney Signature Dining experience, so have some fun and get a little fancy. You'll have a spectacular vantage point to watch Happily Ever After, and I imagine you with a champagne flute, peering out over the park in a fun outfit. Be sure to snap some photos to commemorate it! And remember to make your reservation for Celebration at the Top as soon as your 60-day booking window opens.

    If you go to The Contemporary Resort early, check out one of my favorite spots to shop in Walt Disney World: Bayview Gifts. You can find it on the fourth floor, and I always pick up the perfect souvenir there. You can't have too many Disney backpacks, am I right?

    Jessica, I wish you luck booking this fireworks party for your fall visit. I'm confident you'll be "on top" of it! Please stop by planDisney anytime.

    Magic awaits,
