Planning ahead for big holiday events is very important, and New Year’s Eve is right there at the top of the list.
This year, if you are looking for a unique experience outside of the theme parks, Disney’s Contemporary Resort is the place to be.
But don’t wait to book, because party bookings are now available!
To ring in 2019, two New Year’s Eve celebrations are available at Disney’s Contemporary Resort: Pixar Party: A New Year’s Eve Celebration (recommended for families) and Disney Countdown to Midnight, including an option to purchase VIP access to the Ink and Paint Club (recommended for adults without kids).
Both celebrations will feature entertainment, music, food and other refreshments, plus a viewing of the New Year’s Eve fireworks at Magic Kingdom® Park to cap off the night.
Here’s what else to expect at each party:
