We did hear from other DVC members that we should stay at BLT with a theme park view! We haven’t done that yet and as you mentioned they told us it’s amazing-one day! We did see the Epcot NYE fireworks and they were fabulous! Poly is our home and we did get to view the MK fireworks from the beach (thankfully they show them 4 times lol) so I don’t mean to sound like a grumpy complainer but I just expected a little more magic from that event. Although I notice there was a big difference and price so there ya have it!Wow...I am so sorry you did not enjoy this event. As I said, we went two years ago. There were at least two bars that I remember and prizes were given out at all of the games. Not cool that DVC cheaped out on this~~~and food and drinks were plentiful throughout the evening. We really enjoyed the fireworks viewing area....if you are a DVC member NOT staying at Bay Lake or the other MK resorts, the fireworks viewing area is amazing. And we did actually have a theme park view at BLT that night, and still thought the fireworks were amazing.
Am curious if you got to see the Epcot New years eve fireworks? Wow, those are crazy great!
Sorry for the experience you had.Thought I’d give an update now that we’re home. I wouldn’t book this event again. I didn’t think there was a fun NYE party vibe AT ALL. We walked past the Pixar Party and the music was pumping and it had amazing theming! I noticed they also received NYE hats and horns, we got no fun accessories. I was disappointed when we got to the DVC event. Upon arrival at the Contemporary I thought there could have been more signage. We were ushered in to take a picture with the characters then left to find a table outside. The event wasn’t even in a ballroom it was in a hallway between ballrooms/outside which I found odd, it was way too open and not well themed. There was a DJ and he catered to the kids which was great, he played games and songs that got people dancing. Had a few carnival games, no prizes. The food and drinks were okay-only saw one bar for all those people but there wasn’t ever a long wait. You had to bus you own table which turned me off. Eventually someone came around but they didn’t have enough staff clearing tables. About 10 minutes before the fireworks you had the option of walking about from under the covered area or staying at your table. The view of the fireworks wasn’t great but wasn’t crowded which was a nice perk and the reason we booked the party. The other parties also got to watch from the same area. Overall I thought it was boring and not worth the money.
