Spend a Grown Up New Years Eve In Orlando
Spend a Grown Up New Years Eve In Orlando

There are plenty of reasons to take a trip to Orlando. You can head to Orlando for a romantic getaway or a corporate retreat. So if you are spending New Year’s Eve in Orlando without the under 21 crowd, then here are some ways to celebrate the holiday. Of course, just because you don’t have any kids traveling with you doesn’t mean you can’t choose one of the family-friendly options like New Years at Disney, or Universal. But in case you were looking for something off the beaten track, or maybe just a little less crowded, then these options should be fun.

Disney, for Grown-ups firesworks castle

If you still want to head to Disney, but you don’t want to go to the parks then you have a couple of fantastic options available to you. The first is at Disney Springs in the Edison. This New Years Eve event includes dancers, aerialists, a live band, and a full bar. It includes a celebratory toast at midnight and plenty of food throughout the evening. The only downside to this event is that you won’t be close enough to any of the parks to enjoy the fireworks displays. So that leaves option 2, spending New Year’s Eve at the Boardwalk.

Disney’s Boardwalk

The Boardwalk is one of the most overlooked places in Walt Disney World. Nestled on the waterway between Epcot and Hollywood Studio, this little slice of Disney magic holds restaurants, entertainment venues, and even a full hotel. And on New Years you’ll want to head to the Flying Fish first for a sumptuous 5-course Prix-fixed meal. With food offerings like Chilean Sea Bass, Lobster, and Filet Mignon you know that this will be a meal to remember. And if you catch the 6:00 PM seating, you’ll have plenty of time to take a stroll to let your meal digest before heading to the dance party hosted at Atlantic City Dance Hall. The event goes until 2:00 so you can even slip outside at midnight to catch the fireworks at Epcot and Hollywood Studios! What a way to ring in the new year!


EVE, a Universal CityWalk Event

Universal is holding an over 21 event, and they’ve taken over all of CityWalk to do it. That’s right, all of CityWalk. This includes 6 clubs, gourmet all you can eat food and the largest dance party in Orlando. The event is roughly $140 per person with extra VIP goodies like Balcony access and two free drinks costing you about $235 per person. Of course, all tickets include a complimentary champagne toast for midnight and access to the area until 2 am. There is complimentary parking starting at 6 pm, but if you plan on drinking it would be best to higher a ride for the evening (Always Superb Transport is a favorite of ours!)


Costume Parties, Balls and Red Carpet Experiences

If you’re a fan of James Bond, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Annual James Bond New Year’s Eve Part at the Enzian Theatre. You can come dressed up as your favorite Bond Girl, Bond Villan, or version of James Bond himself. There is an open bar, light Hors d’Oeuvers, and the complimentary midnight toast while the confetti ball drops. The cost is $99.

Another brilliant option is the Great Gatsby New Years Party, at the World of Beer in downtown Orlando. This one is a 21+ event, but it also includes a costume party with giveaways for the best dressed and more! The cost for this event is $100 per person.

You could also attend Orlando’s New Year’s Eve Masquerade. For this event, guests are encouraged to dress well and, of course, wear masks. The event is held at 3NINE, with its poolside patio, bars and more. The event is put on by the Florida Party Consultants and is billed to be exclusive and upscale for the full New Years Eve in Orlando experience.

For another red carpet worthy experience, you can also choose a night at the Orlando Museum of Art. This experience includes desert, live music, museum access and a Champagne toast with fireworks at Midnight. The cost can be a bit steep at $225 per couple.


There are also dozens of parties at the bars, hotels, and neighborhoods around the area, but these are some of the best 21 and over events, you’ll find in the area. And of course, if you choose you can head over to one of the more family-friendly parties, like the ones held in Walt Disney World’s parks.
