Alice in Wonderland Party Coming to California Grill for New Year’s Eve

Alice in Wonderland Party Coming to California Grill for New Year's Eve california-grill-bar-entrance-view

Walt Disney World invites guests to ring in the New Year with an evening inspired by Alice in Wonderland at California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Guests in attendance can enjoy shimmering champagne, delightful wines, marvelous food, and one-of-a-kind entertainment.


Immerse yourself in the whimsical surroundings of California Grill—transformed into an immersive romp through Wonderland. You may see Characters from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland throughout the evening.

Get your camera ready: you’ll come face-to-face with The Doorknob in the entryway. Then, keep your eyes peeled for Alice, The Mad Hatter, and The March Hare in the Dining Room. You may also get a chance to wave hello to Dinah the Hat Lady—but beware of the Queen of Hearts! It will surely be a merry party, complete with custom-crafted cocktails.

We hope you come dressed in your best and are ready to dance! Our DJ—The White Rabbit—has curated an upbeat music fest. Plus, we’ll cap the evening and start 2024 with a fantastic champagne toast at midnight.


As you float between the rooms, you’ll find food stations inspired by Lewis Carroll’s imaginative stories. Indulge in delicious seafood––including delectable caviar––with our chef’s creative twist
