New Year’s Eve News

New Year’s Eve is a fun (albeit crowded) time to visit Walt Disney World. The fireworks are spectacular, and where else can you ring in the New Year in multiple countries (aka Epcot) all at the same time?

Reservations are now open for special New Year’s Eve events at the Walt Disney World Resort.  Dance the night away at Atlantic Dance Hall with a live band, party hats, and still be able to view the fireworks from Epcot at midnight. Enjoy a four-course meal at Le Cellier Steakhouse with multiple seating times. Treat yourself to an unbelievable view of Magic Kingdom fireworks while sampling a variety of food at California Grill.

Other locations available to make this New Year’s Eve  include Chef Mickey’s, La Hacienda de San Angel, Monsieur Paul, Narcoosee’s, and Victoria & Albert’s. Be sure to make advance reservations.

Club Villain

Not too long ago we told you about Club Disney that is coming to Sunset Showcase at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in December. Now, they’ve added a new hard ticket event to this location – that requires an extra ticket to enjoy.

Reservations are now open for Club Villain, which is scheduled to open in January. Enjoy entertainment and New Orleans inspired food and beverages while mingling with your favorite Disney Villains.

This special event will only be available on select evenings and reservations are strongly encouraged and advanced payment with all reservations is required. Currently the event calendar has January 16, 23, and all Saturdays in February and March as available dates. Although similar to a character dining experience, Disney Dining Plan entitlements cannot be used for this event.  The price is $99 per person (including tax and gratuity) and park admission is also required.
