California Grill Offering ‘A Golden New Year’s Eve in Wine Country’ For $700
Today, the California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Walt Disney World has finally announced their New Year’s Eve Festivities for this year and boy are they pulling out all of the stops meaning that it also comes at a pretty mighty price tag. Let’s take a look at what Disney is calling “A Golden New Year’s Even in Wine Country”
Guests will be able to ring in the New Year in the elegance of the California Grill complete with champagne, delightful wines, marvelous food and one of a kind entertainment.
The setting will be inspired by the twinkling lights and lush greenery of California Wine Country. In celebration of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary your hosts will be a pair of Sparkling Sommeliers painted in luxurious gold providing the ultimate photo op!
The event will be held in the Napa Room (a popular year-round wedding venue) which will be magically transformed into an eclectic speakeasy. You’ll be mesmerized by a slight-of-hand magician, delicious wine pairings and custom crafted cocktails!
The fun continues over to the adjoining Sonoma Room where guests will have the unique opportunity to visit Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Baby New Year Donald.
Participants are encouraged to come dressed in your New Year’s Eve best. Also bring your dancing shoes as a DJ will be playing a curated music fest. A roaring violinist will also be on hand to serenade guests with upbeat melodies!
As guests float between the Napa and Sonoma Rooms, there will be 50th Anniversary food stations with indulgent treats like delicious seafood including delectable caviar. The menu will also include favorite offerings from the last 50 years. Here’s a quick look at the incredible highlights!
