    How do i make a reservation for the new years eve party do i just booka normal day ticket on dec 31st or do i have to pay for a special pass for that event ?

    Hello Eric, 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! Call me Cinderella because when the clock strikes midnight, I am running home to my bed. But I understand why you may feel differently on New Year’s Eve!

    Eric, at this time, there have been no official New Year’s Eve events announced within the theme parks. At Disney’s Contemporary Resort, you can attend the special ticketed event, Alice’s Whimsical Wonderland, in California Grill which includes a DJ, food, and a viewing of the Magic Kingdom Park fireworks from outside the park. 

    In the past, Magic Kingdom Park has also celebrated the New Year with DJs, dance parties, and a special nighttime spectacular show. In EPCOT, you could visit various pavilions in the World Showcase where you would also find DJs and special countdowns to the New Year in that country. To enjoy these festivities in Magic Kingdom Park or EPCOT, no additional Special Event ticket was needed. Your theme park ticket and theme park reservation for that date are all you would need! 

    I suggest watching the Disney Parks Blog for any announcements about New Year’s Eve activities around Walt Disney World Resort. Sometimes these events may not be announced until the weeks or days before New Year’s Eve. Or, if you decide to count down to the New Year in your Disney Resort hotel room bed like I would, you’ll still be starting 2024 with magic because you’ll be in Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Thanks again for bringing your question to planDisney, Eric! Please visit us if you have any more questions before your trip!
