Three Different Ways to Celebrate New Year’s Eve at Universal Orlando Resort
With 2018 fading quickly in the rearview mirror, it’s time to consider where you want to be when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve.
Across Universal Orlando Resort, we’re planning some amazing celebrations, and I’m so excited to share them with you. From midnight toasts to confetti showers, the festivities across our parks and hotels will make this a night you won’t forget.
Here are three ways you can ring in the new year at Universal Orlando:
1. Party It Up at Universal Studios Florida
Make your way to Universal Studios Florida as the Music Plaza Stage and Central Park areas transform into rockin’ party zones. You’ll enjoy live music, appearances by some of your favorite Universal Orlando characters and – of course – essential New Year’s Eve party favors. Universal Orlando’s Cinematic Celebration will light up the night just before amazing pyrotechnic displays and showers of confetti mark the start of a new year. The best part is New Year’s Eve celebrations at Universal Studios Florida are included with your theme park admission or Annual Pass, which are now available with up to six months free.
2. Experience EVE at Universal CityWalk
Looking for an upscale New Year’s Eve party? Check out EVE at Universal CityWalk. Designed for guests 21 and up, this separately-ticketed event includes unlimited gourmet cuisine, live bands and DJs – including a performance by DJ M-Squared – access to six CityWalk clubs, plus Orlando’s largest outdoor dance floor. The only time you won’t be dancing is at midnight, when we’ll pause for a champagne toast and a breathtaking pyrotechnic display. Tickets for EVE are now on sale – learn more and purchase your tickets before December 20 for $30 off!
3. Celebrate at Our On-Site Hotels
All of our on-site hotels also join in the fun, providing a mix of unique dining options, live entertainment, midnight toasts and even balloon drops. Highlights include Hard Rock Hotel’s “Rock-In 2018!” event (where we’ll tune in via satellite to watch the Times Square Ball Drop), Loews Portofino Bay Hotel’s New Year’s Eve Party on the Piazza, and Jake’s “Best of 2018” Beer Dinner at Loews Royal Pacific Resort.

Whether you prefer to dance the night away or mark the occasion with a fine dining experience, your ideal New Year’s countdown celebration is bound to be at Universal Orlando.
Stay tuned for updates on all the festivities coming to our theme parks and hotels this winter. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
