Don’t just stand on the balcony of your hotel room in the hopes of catching a glimpse of the fireworks that will fill the night skies above Orlando this New Year’s Eve. Get out and celebrate at one of Orlando’s exciting NYE parties! Join revelers at over the top celebrations only the theme parks can pull. Or head downtown and party in the streets with the locals at our own fave NYE block party.
EVE is Universal Orlando’s biggest party of the year. Last year’s celebration granted access to six clubs featuring DJs and live bands, a midnight champagne toast, unlimited catered food, and, of course, one of the best fireworks shows in the city. Tickets last year were right around $100, and the event was only for ages 21+. If you’re planning to go this year, be sure to buy your tickets early. Ticket prices last year jumped up after December 15.
Epcot/Magic Kingdom/Hollywood Studios/Disney Springs
Disney has a lot going on for New Year’s Eve. Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Disney Springs all featured unique New Year’s celebrations for you to enjoy. Wish upon a star while you ring in the New Year at the Magic Kingdom where fireworks and lights shows are held at Cinderella’s castle. Travel the world at Epcot then enjoy their fireworks show which will be epic at global proportions. Get out of the galaxy at Hollywood Studios for Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, bound to delight fans and families. Looking for a more down to Earth yet adult themed party? Head over to the Edison restaurant at Disney Springs for a 21+ celebration.
SeaWorld always rings in the New Year in spectacular fashion. Explore live music throughout the park and a host of shows leading up to the midnight countdown and amazing fireworks show. The best part is that this is a kid-friendly party! Last year’s celebrations featured food, interactive DJ stations for the kiddos, and craft beers for adults.
ICON Orlando 360/I-Drive
ICON Orlando’s New Year’s Eve party last year was one to remember! People enjoyed music and dancing, family-friendly entertainment, and food trucks.

If you’re looking to end your year with a bang on a budget, this is the event for you.
