A Few Magical Ways to Celebrate New Year’s Eve at the Walt Disney World Resort

If you haven't made your New Year's Eve plans yet and you're going to be at the Walt Disney World Resort there are a few rather magical ways to ring in 2014.

As of mid-December, Monsieur Paul still had a few reservations available for noon, 12:30, 2:30, and 3 p.m. on New Year's Eve. The restaurant is serving a three-course menu for $75 (plus tax and gratuity).

The special menu includes escargot ravioli, mussel soup, or blue cheese salad followed by chicken stuffed with mushrooms duxelle, Maine lobster, or beef short ribs.

At the Epcot WorldShowplace, Fantasia 2013 is celebrating with a tribute to Fantasia. This party offers fun for the whole family with a buffet and dessert station. The price for this celebration is $68.47 for adults and $44.37 for kids ages 3 to 10.

Over on Disney's BoardWalk guests can dance into 2014 at the Atlantic Dance Hall celebration from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. This celebration is $37 per person and is for guests 21 and older.

If you're looking to make reservations for any of the New Year's Eve dinners or parties call 407-WDW-DINE.

I have always wanted to spend NYE in Disney - which makes no sense because I hate crowds. Perhaps I would just take refuge up at the Top of the World Lounge.

That's where I'll be Kristen. We were there two years ago, and the fireworks are amazing. Best of all, no fighting the crowds, and my kids are in bed 10 minutes later.

I spent ONE New Year's Eve at the Magic Kingdom back in 2001 and vowed to never do it again (at least not at that park). :)

I like the idea of an early dinner at Monsieur Paul's though...and then I'll join Kristen at the Top of the World Lounge!

The best theme park to enjoy the New Years Eve celebration is at EPCOT. Because of its size and the larger pathways around the lagoon it makes it very enjoyable for viewing the incredible fireworks and nightly entertainment...just don't rush for an exit after midnight. My family has done this twice and both times were very special and memorable.

The best place to celebrate New Years Eve is at Jellyrolls on the Boardwalk. Dueling pianos with the best entertainers employed by Disney, and viewing the Epcot fireworks from the comfort of our seats while enjoying that music.
