This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Disney has just announced a new New Year’s Eve party coming to the all-new Disney’s Riviera Resort when it opens this December. DVC members will also have an exclusive head start on bookings! Check out all the details below.

Revelers will toast the New Year atop the newest resort in the neighborhood during “Mezzanotte at Topolino’s: An Italian Masquerade,” and as part of Membership Magic, eligible Disney Vacation Club Members* may begin booking this limited-capacity event two days before the general public. Member registration begins on July 16, while reservations for the general public open on July 18.

Topolino’s: Flavors of the Riviera – the dining destination ideally perched atop the upcoming Disney’s Riviera Resort – will host this elegant affair for 200 Members and guests, feeding partygoers with European-inspired buffets, food stations, a la carte tapas and more. Plans call for menu options to include artisanal cheeses, imported French and Italian charcuterie, house-made breads, chilled seafood, hand-crafted pastas, European desserts, and other French and Italian specialties.

A feast for the eyes arrives as the clock nears midnight, with the rooftop restaurant and its outdoor terrace offering a glimpse of fireworks spectaculars from nearby 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.

For reservations, call Member Services at (800) 800-9800.

*As a part of Membership Extras, an incidental benefit, these member benefits are subject to change, availability or termination and may require a fee. Membership Extras are available with eligible ownership interests. Visit http://disneyvacationclub.com/memextraspolicy for more information.
