Revelers will toast the New Year atop the newest resort in the neighborhood during “Mezzanotte at Topolino’s: An Italian Masquerade,” and as part of Membership Magic, eligible Disney Vacation Club Members* may begin booking this limited-capacity event two days before the general public. Member registration begins on July 16, while reservations for the general public open on July 18.

Topolino’s: Flavors of the Riviera – the dining destination ideally perched atop the upcoming Disney’s Riviera Resort – will host this elegant affair for 200 Members and guests, feeding partygoers with European-inspired buffets, food stations, a la carte tapas and more. Plans call for menu options to include artisanal cheeses, imported French and Italian charcuterie, house-made breads, chilled seafood, hand-crafted pastas, European desserts, and other French and Italian specialties. (Food and beverage selections are subject to change.)

A feast for the eyes arrives as the clock nears midnight, with the rooftop restaurant and its outdoor terrace offering a glimpse of fireworks spectaculars from nearby Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Check-in will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 31, with the event running from 8 p.m.-12:15 a.m. The cost of $550 (inclusive of tax and gratuity) a person includes food, beverages (with alcoholic and non-alcoholic options) and musical entertainment – from a DJ to traditional Italian musicians and vocalists.

Note that the event’s dress code calls for dress pants or slacks with a collared shirt for men. For women, dresses, skirts, pants and blouses are all acceptable options. And here’s a little fashion tip from the event planners: as wearing red to ring in the New Year is an Italian tradition, including a bit of red in your ensemble, is encouraged.

For reservations, call Member Services at (800) 800-9800.

*As a part of Membership Extras, an incidental benefit, these member benefits are subject to change, availability or termination and may require a fee. Membership Extras are available with eligible ownership interests. Visit http://disneyvacationclub.com/memextraspolicy for more information.

  • Are dress pants and slacks the same thing? Chinos, khakis and jeans are all pants but none of them are slacks. Slacks are dress pants. Is there a distinction I’m missing? Asking for a friend.

  • I might suggest if you really want to consider this a perk for members you might expand the venue and significantly lower the price. I doubt the average member (or even 99% of members) can pay $550 a person for an evening like this. I know you can get it but this falls into the “top 1%” category that we hear so much about these days. Events like this for the rest of us would be nice. Thanks.
