Will be interesting to see if this sells out, or will it go via the EPCOT Star Wars event mess.

We are there over Christmas and NY this year and since planning the trip months and months ago had always planned to book dinner at topolino on NYE to enjoy Epcots 6:30pm fireworks show as we have 3 children under 5 so theyll all be in bed by 8pm and wed rather not have to tackle the Epcot crowds!

When I phoned up at 180+10 to book for NYE, imagine my disappointment when I was told that both Topolino and Toledo werent taking bookings for that meaning meaning all 3 roof top restaurants (including Cali Grill) were being taken out of action for over priced NYE parties. The greed is just unbelievable.

I just find it incredibly short sighted as none of these parties can be enjoyed by families regardless of the cost. Why not allow dinner bookings for the earlier fireworks showings at 6:30pm and then close the restaurant to get ready for the extortionate NYE ticketed parties at 8pm. Its just so disappointing when you really plan your trips to make the most of every opportunity to then find out its all a waste of time.

Ive seen that TOTWL is also now closed for a ticketed event so Im glad we werent banking on going there like we have in previous years before children! Very glad I booked my theme park view room at BLT at least that way we know we can definitely enjoy the MK NYE fireworks from our balcony whilst the children sleep - at least we can guarantee they cant take that away from us!

HOLY CRAP.

I have this restaurant booked for xmas day breakfast & dinner, got to choose one, because, let's face it, as a signature it's going to be expensive enough!

But this?! No way could I justify it. That is insane.

To be fair to WDW, the NYE events have always been very very expensive. I cant remember the exact amount but Cali Grill NYE was about $400 each (though I seem to think it included more) in 2016/7.

I guess this one is even more because they are testing the upper limit of what guests are prepared to pay.
