There’s no better place to ring in the New Year than the Most Magical Place on Earth, and this year guests have the opportunity to ring in 2020 at the newest resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort! Mezzanotte at Topolino’s: An Italian Masquerade is the newest way to celebrate New Year’s Eve at Walt Disney World, and you won’t want to miss your chance to be a part of its very first party.
Topolino’s: Flavors of the Riviera will be the dining destination for this New Year’s Eve event, perched at the top of the all-new Disney’s Riviera Resort! The affair will be limited to only 200 Disney Vacation Club Members and guests, where they will feast on European-inspired buffets, a la carte tapas, food stations, and more. The plans for this event call for menu options to include imported French and Italian charcuterie, artisanal cheeses, chilled seafood, house-made breads, hand-crafted pastas, European desserts, and other French and Italian specialties!
As you wait for the clock to strike midnight, find your spot on the rooftop restaurant’s outdoor terrace to catch a glimpse of the firework spectaculars from Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Check-in for Mezzanotte at Topolino’s: An Italian Masquerade will begin at 7:30 PM on December 31, 2019. The event will run from 8 PM until 12:15 AM on January 1, 2020. The cost of this event is $550 per person and includes food, beverages, live musical entertainment, and tax and gratuity. Musical entertainment for the event will range from DJ to traditional Italian vocalists and musicians.
Note that there will be a dress code for this event. Men’s dress code calls for dress pants or slacks with a collared shirt while women have dresses, skirts, pants, and blouses as acceptable outfit options. The event planners are also encouraging guests to wear a bit of red in their ensemble, because wearing red to ring in the New Year is an Italian tradition!
