Disney plans 3 New Year’s Eve parties for Contemporary

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]alt Disney World is introducing three new New Year’s Eve events — including an all-ages Pixar-themed party — to be held at the Contemporary Resort this year.

All three of the parties will include midnight viewing of the fireworks from the neighboring Magic Kingdom theme park.

Pixar Party: A New Year’s Eve Celebration will be held in the hotel’s Ballroom of the Americas, which will feature sets inspired by films such as “Toy Story” (Think Andy’s room) and “The Incredibles.” There will be characters, face-painting, a boot camp with Sarge, dance hits from Radio Disney and a Disney-Pixar-inspired buffet, reports a post on the official Disney Parks Blog.

A more traditional New Year’s event will be Disney Countdown to Midnight with live music, dancing, dining in the Fantasia Ballroom and that midnight flute of champagne. This party, designed for the 18-and-older set, runs from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
