Special Ideas for Celebrating new Year at Walt Disney World

Ringing in the New Year at Walt Disney World is one of those things I dreamed of as a girl. Frankly, I place the blame directly on the early 80's version of Carousel of Progress.

Sitting high on top the Contemporary Resort's Bay Lake Tower lies one of the most exclusive lounges in all of Walt Disney World, the Top of the World. This posh bar with its relaxed mid-century modern interior is home to one of my favorite desserts, the seven layer cake for two.

3 Disney World Resort Lounges for a Great Nightcap

Headed back to your room from a busy day at the park, it's not unusual to think about stopping for a nightcap before hitting the sack. A nightcap is an alcoholic beverage meant to warm and sooth you before going to bed. Frequently people choose something with a higher alcohol content, usually a liqueur or spirit. Traditional nightcaps are brandy or a cream-based liqueur or a bourbon. However Wine or Beer are also more and more common these days.

Restaurants and Lounges with a Magic Kingdom Fireworks View

Watching Wishes from the comfort of one of Disney's elegant restaurants or lounges outside of the Park is a relaxing and comfortable way to view the Magic Kingdom fireworks.
