Default DVC NYE Party @ Contemporary Resort

Disney Countdown to Midnight: A New Year’s Eve Celebration

Ring in 2020 in the most magical way during an elegant, all-inclusive event like no other at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

A Dazzling Affair

Join us for an evening filled with sensational seasonal cuisine, live music, dancing and plenty of unique photo opportunities.

The Countdown Experience
Starting at 8:00 PM on December 31, 2019, Disney Countdown to Midnight gives Guests the opportunity to welcome the new year at an extraordinary soirée held within the convention center at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.


The fun begins as you head to the heart of the party in the Fantasia Ballroom, where you can indulge in an assortment of libations—including adult beverages for Guests 21 years of age and older—before moving and grooving to dance tunes from our interactive DJ, featuring music spanning from the ‘60s to today.


Then, it’s time to marvel at a stunning display of culinary sorcery, as the Disney chefs produce incredible “cheftainment” behind animated shadowboxes. Enjoy personal interaction with the chefs, as they build sensational seasonal bites right before your eyes!


Delight in delectable creations inspired by such signature restaurants as California Grill, Le Cellier Steakhouse, Narcoossee’s and Tiffins. Menu highlights include barbecue-spiced wild Florida shrimp and grits with cherrywood-smoked bacon, pan-seared sablefish with leek fondue and cassis red wine reduction. Or, sink your teeth into a New York strip steak, carved to order with fingerling potatoes, baby spinach, fried capers and a maple bordelaise sauce. For dessert, indulge in a white-chocolate-raspberry crème brûlée or a Florida Key lime bar with toasted meringue, raspberry and passion fruit—or why not have both?


As the evening continues, take the party to the next level with the high-energy sounds of the New Year’s Eve Bash Band. Enjoy as the group takes over the main stage, keeping you dancing, dining and drinking all the way into 2020.


Finally, Guests are invited outside to the Porte-Cochère for an invigorating toast as the famous New Year’s Eve fireworks spectacular lights up the night from Magic Kingdom park!
Throughout the evening, you can capture memories with a variety of themed photo ops and backdrops.


It’s all remarkable—and it’s all included with the price of your admission. This event will book quickly, so be sure to reserve your spot!

Geez. If I went with my immediate family, we could celebration New Year’s Eve for a mere $2000. Hmm...I think I’ll just buy a bottle of cheap champagne and stay at home for $20.

I'm going to make a wild guess that the cuisine will not be "sensational".

The event is pricey, but like most of these types of events......it will sell out.

Sure it will!
But that is a lot of money.

We do enough of the “extra” events, but there is a limit. I put that right up there with, I’d love to do Victoria and Alberts, but!

.....It’s funny, We go to Disney 3x/yr and do extra experiences all the time, but we all have our own price point.
A fun time I’m sure it will be for those who choose to attend.
This may be their “ one special” upgrade and I wish them a blast!
Never say never......

Nice, but not for me. This one is open to all, but still interested to hear more about what the DVC offering will be at Top of the World...

As soon as I read Le Cellier was one of their chosen restaurants I was out. Overpriced, gross food. There’s no need to spend a lot of extra money for that experience
