It’s the New Year and the possibilities are endless, so it’s only fitting that Disney World has come up with many ways for guests to usher in 2016.  Stand in the middle of Main Street for Fireworks in the Sky?  Absolutely.  How about forgetting all about that hyped-up Times Square ball and celebrating at Epcot instead while watching Illuminations?  Sign me up!  And let’s not forget – there’s also Lights! Camera! New Year’s Eve Fireworks at Hollywood Studios.

But wait, there’s more!  Disney just recently announced a new way to ring in the New Year, and that’s through the Countdown to Midnight celebration at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Convention Center.  The talented Vanessa Williams will be performing at the event. Disney fans will recognize her voice from the Academy Award-winning song, “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas.

Here’s more information about this exciting event:

  • Countdown to Midnight will feature not one, not two, but three different themed party experiences.  First, you can enjoy hilarious comedy at the Adventurer’s Club.  Then you can boogie to Club Live, where rollicking tunes will be played by a nine-piece dance band.  Finally, at Club Vinyl, a seven-piece band will feature a jazzy twist to modern hits.
  • The party kicks off at 8pm at the Convention Center.  Check-in starts at 7:30 pm.
  • The event is exclusive to Walt Disney World Resort guests only.
  • It wouldn’t be a Disney party if it didn’t have plentiful food, so there are buffet stations that feature all-you-care-to-eat goodies and sweets.
  • Beer, wine, and cocktails are all included with admission!  Open bar = Happy New Year!
  • Each guest will also receive their very own champagne glass to toast the New Year – and keep as a souvenir.
  • Advanced reservations are required.  You can call (407) 939-3463 directly or book through your travel agent.
  • Admission is $300 per person; tax and gratuities are included.

If you are interested in booking this package, but don’t have a reservation, it’s not too late!  Send me an email to myra@worldofmagictravel.com to book a resort reservation and party tickets.  Room availability for New Year’s Eve is running out fast, particularly in the Epcot area hotels – so don’t delay!  Here are some sample packages and pricing:

  • 3-night stay for two at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel with park tickets and party admission, starting at $2,121
  • 2-night stay for two at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel with park tickets and party admission, starting at $1,708
  • Overnight stay for two at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel with park tickets and party admission, starting at $1,451

As one of my favorite villains, Hades, would say: “We dance, we kiss, we schmooze, we carry on, go home happy.  What’d’ya say?  Come on!”
