Just when we thought Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours was too expensive, we’re learning Disney is holding a special New Year’s Eve event at the ever-so-popular California Grill Restaurant at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. While this Disney Resort event may have a $700 price tag, we will say it sounds absolutely amazing and we’re jealous of all those who have a chance to go!

“A Golden New Year’s Eve in Wine Country”

Disney invites Guests to join them for “A Golden New Year’s Eve in Wine Country” with the following event description:

Ring in the New Year with elegance at California Grill. Enjoy champagne and delightful wines, marvelous food and one-of-a-kind entertainment. Dine and delight in a setting inspired by the twinkling lights and lush greenery of California Wine Country. Your brand-new 50th Anniversary Hosts––a pair of Sparkling Sommeliers painted in luxurious gold––are here for your photographic fun! Enter the Napa Room, now transformed into an eclectic speakeasy! Be mesmerized by a slight-of-hand magician while you sip delicious wine pairings and custom crafted cocktails. The Sonoma Room is next on your journey into 2022.

Our DJ has curated a music fest and a roaming violinist is ready to serenade you with upbeat melodies. As you float between the 2 rooms, you’ll find 50th Anniversary food stations. Indulge in delicious seafood––including delectable caviar––that honors the legacy of California Grill chefs.
