Disney's Riviera Resort to Host New Year's Eve Celebration

The upcoming Riviera Resort promises to be an elegant and upscale resort set in the French and Italian Riviera with a touch of Disney. If it is anything like the new Gran Destino Tower at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, we are in for a very special treat. The resort will feature rooftop dining with a view at Topolino's Terrace and Disney has just announced that a very special event will be taking place here. Mezzanotte at Topolino’s: An Italian Masquerade will ring in the new year on December 31st, 2019. The special dining event will include European-inspired buffets, food stations, a la carte tapas and more.

As part of the announcement, we now know that eligible Disney Vacation Club Members will get the chance to pre-book this special dining event before anyone else on July 16th. Reservations for this New Year's Eve event will open up to the general public two days later on July 18th. This dining experience at Topolino's will combine European flavors, musical entertainment and a view of not one but two firework displays at midnight; both at 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.
