It’s already going to be July tomorrow and Walt Disney World wants to make sure you’re prepared to ring in 2017 with the new “Disney Countdown to Midnight – A New Year’s Eve Celebration” at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Disney Parks Blog has the scoop on what to expect for this raucous event:
This ticketed event will take place December 31, 2016, beginning at 8 p.m. at the hotel’s Convention Center. There, guests can ring in 2017 in the Fantasia Ballroom by dancing to music spanning from the ’60s to today, and trying “best-of-the-best” bites and wine pairings from California Grill, Flying Fish, Cítricos and Narcoossee’s. Guests can also enjoy the group Alter Ego as they perform their extravagant music- and dance-filled revue, then stroll outside to catch a unique musical act playing songs of today with a retro twist. The event will be highlighted with Magic Kingdom Park fireworks viewing and a champagne toast. There will also be themed photo backdrops and props to help you capture the memories of the evening and receive a souvenir to commemorate the night. Plus complimentary transportation will be provided for select Walt Disney World Resort hotels.
You’ll want to act fast to get in on all the New Year’s fun as the tickets are “extremely limited”. Starting July 4, prospective partygoers can purchase tickets by calling 407-939-3463 or visiting the event page at DisneyWorld.com.
