Exclusive New Year’s Eve Parties Offered at Magic Kingdom Park

New Year's Eve Parties at Magic Kingdom

We shared our first special New Year’s Eve experience last month — now we have two new exclusive parties being offered at the Magic Kingdom Park.

You’re invited to celebrate the New Year at Walt Disney World with an all-you-care-to-enjoy dinner, dessert and exclusive viewing of the Wishes fireworks show. It’s a two-hour dining experience at the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station that’s offered one time only — on December 31 between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

The Dinner and Dessert Party includes artisan breads, fruit, cheeses, sushi, salads, seared tuna, beef short-ribs and carved pork. There will also be a child-friendly section available during the party. You’ll then be able to choose from a wide-range of desserts and toast the New Year with a non-alcoholic sparkling beverage before the amazing fireworks display.

Check in for this Party begins at 6:15 p.m. and it’s $139.99 for Guests ages 10 and older and $69.99 for children ages 3 through 9.

There’s also a Fantasy in the Sky Dessert Party at Magic Kingdom that begins at 9:50 p.m. The Party includes a self-service buffet featuring sweets and beverages and non-alcoholic sparkling drinks to toast the New Year. It’ll cost $35.99 for Guests ages 10 and over AND $19.99 for children ages 3 through 9.

You should know that Park tickets are required for the parties and it’s probably best to arrive as early as possible. The Disney Dining Plan is not currently being accepted and pre-payment will be required when reserving seats for the night.

Have you ever celebrated the New Year at Disney Parks? How about this year?

Looks OK, but the price tag and time constraints are simply odd. This is an elite event, certainly not accessible to the normal guest on vacation.

$140 for a buffet and normal Wishes fireworks in addition to a ticket? Are there gift bags or something? Did I miss something else?

The 2nd party lasts until midnight? Just desert and fireworks?

Thomas, does having a ticket to either event guarantee entry into the park even if it is at a hard close with no one else admitted due to capacity?

The way it sounds by arriving early it doesn’t or you could just be implying to come, enjoy and spend more money.

Not to be critical, but haven’t people here priced other New Year’s Eve events/dinners? This is right in line with many prices out there, at least in my part of the country… actually the dessert one is a lot cheaper than most…

I can assure anyone who has never seen a WDW New Years’ Eve, their ‘regular’ Wishes is anything BUT regular. They’ll do the everyday show first and will follow it with the most amazing spectacle if fireworks. Personally, the buffet isn’t enough to keep me from EPCOT though. Far more impressive than MK.

We celebrated New Year’s Eve at Disneyland Park in CA in 2004 & it was just amazing! Absolutely so much fun to be there on such a festive night! Cast members were passing out very fun party hats & horns & the energy of the crowd was just incredible! One of these years, we’d like to be at WDW to celebrate the entire Christmas/New Year’s season!! :)

Or, for the mere price of park admission, you can go to Epcot and look around for the Lights of Winter. This is an especially good deal, because instead of just attending a two-hour party, you’ll be looking forever.

Wow, that’s an outrageous cost for something not that valuable. The seating area used for these parties is under cover blocking most of the high fireworks. I’ve watched from there before the area was repurposed for dessert parties.

I will be celebrating New Year’s in Disney this year (3rd year in a row) and will be dining at the parks. It’s a great time to be in Disney. But this party is way too expensive and underwhelming.

Well, as a college student, I cannot say I will be there at the party. But it has been a tradition for the past 4 years for two friends and I to stay on property for new years eve and the day before, doing two parks a day. So you’ll see us for New Years!

When at the Magic Kingdom on New Years Eve you need to be there early. The Park was at capacity and closed at 10AM last year. There is a great family party at Epcot on new years with four or five bands around the World Showcase. Also in previuos year the new years fireworks are shown in the Magic Kingdom on the 30th.

I agree with most people on this page, I love the Disney experience and have spent a lot of time and cash in the parks, but considering the price and the odd time, I would pass on this one. Also, the fact that you have to buy park tickets as well, brings it down a notch. Considering the economy, I’m surprised Disney is doing it like this.

My first memory (like, ever) was watching the New Year’s Eve fireworks from Tomorrowland. It was my first trip to Disney World, a week after my second birthday.

Thomas, Good night. How can I make a reservation to this Dinner Party? Is it possible to make the reservation by internet? I’ll be in the park for the first time in New Year’s Eve and I’d like to participate with my husband and son. Thanks for the information.
