Before you know it we will be ringing in the new year, and there’s no better place to do it than at The Walt Disney World Resort. With numerous celebrations to take part in along with enchanting dining experiences you will find countless options to choose from. Disney’s Contemporary Resort is home to what we call “party central” for New Year’s celebrations!


Two uniquely themed Prix-Fixe events will be held inside of the ballrooms at the Contemporary – Pixar Party and Down in New Orleans.


Pixar Party will kick off 2018 with a fun party with a Disney•Pixar-inspired dining event for the entire family. A DJ will be playing hit songs from a Cars-inspired DJ rig before guests can enjoy the world-famous fireworks from the Porte Cochére.

The Pixar Party will cost $175 per guest (tax and gratuity included). This event is very limited to only 300 guests and will take place on December 31, 2017 from 8:00 pm to 12:15 am in the Ballroom of the Americas at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
