It is hard to believe, but New Year’s Eve is just a few weeks away, and that means celebrations will be all over the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests tend to flood Magic Kingdom Park in order to ring in the new year in front of Cinderella Castle with the party horns and festive hats. While theme park capacity may not be at 100%, there will still be a lot of Guests making their way to The Most Magical Place on Earth.

If trying to get into the Magic Kingdom on one of the busiest days of the year does not float your boat, one deluxe Disney hotel is offering an elite New Year’s Eve celebration, but it will cost you. The California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is offering A Golden New Year’s Eve in Wine Country for the price of $700 per person.
