As the theme park capital of the world, Orlando certainly knows how to host a party and New Year’s Eve is no different. From fireworks that light up the city skyline to outdoor dance floors and block parties, it’s a wonderful time to plan a visit to our CLC Encantada resort. Here’s just a glimpse of what to expect if you spend New Year’s in Florida. 2019 starts in style here!
Where to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Orlando
Of course, many New Year’s celebrations are centred around the city’s theme parks, where magical illuminations light up the winter sky. Just a few of the family-friendly highlights include:
Walt Disney World® Resort
The “Fantasy in the Sky” fireworks display at Magic Kingdom will take place at 6.30pm and 11.50pm. Another fireworks display will be held at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Live music and dance parties are planned for Frontierland and Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom, Disney Springs’ restaurants and nightspots and at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where all-ages can ring in 2019 at the Pixar Party.
Universal Orlando Resort ™
Fireworks, confetti and party favours are all on the menu at Universal Studios Florida and guests will also be able to enjoy live music, party zones, and mingle with their favourite characters. Consider reserving a table at The Kitchen at Hard Rock Hotel, where a buffet will be served between 5pm and 11pm.
LEGOLAND® Florida Resort
If you’ve got little ones who will struggle to make it to midnight, at LEGOLAND Florida Resort celebrations begin early in the evening on the 31st of December, with a giant LEGO brick drop, building activities, dancing and fireworks.
EVE at Universal CityWalk™
An all-in-one celebration with live bands, DJs and the biggest dance floor in Orlando.
New Year’s Eve block party at Wall St. Plaza
A free event that bills itself as Orlando’s biggest New Year’s Eve party, at Wall St. Plaza themed bars, dance parties, and light shows always live up to expectations.
You’ll find your home away from home at CLC World Orlando, with the best of on-resort living right on your doorstep. Our spacious self-contained two or three bedroom townhouses are perfect for festive escapes that bring together families or groups of friends.
While highs of 23°C during December in Orlando are not uncommon, it’s best to pack for a variety of temperatures and keep in mind that the nights can be rather chilly. Encantada is one of the best resorts in Orlando during the winter months with an array of amenities for all seasons, including a heated swimming pool and cosy games room. The cooler weather is also a great time to make the most of the walking and jogging paths around the lake at CLC Encantada resort.
