New Year’s Eve is a holiday that we can all get behind. After the stress we put on ourselves over Christmas it is the one holiday that all is expected of us is that we have a great time, we drink a lot of champagne, and maybe, just maybe, we travel to exotic places that are warm and wonderful to count down to say farewell to the old year. If your 2023 ends with a journey to enjoy an Orlando New Years, this guide to ringing in the new year will ensure that every minute is filled with fun, excitement, and luck that will hold strong through the next 12 months of your life, especially when you choose to stay with Tuscana Resort!
2023 ZERO Prostate Cancer Tee-Off, 9295 Universal Boulevard, December 31
Warm weather, lots of sunshine, and the opportunity to hit a few balls at our local Topgolf while helping a good cause, what more could you ask for on the last day of the year? A few hours at Topgolf is always a good idea, offering fun for golfers of all skill levels, and on this day of chari-tee, (See what we did there?) it doesn’t matter how well you swing—all that matters is you show up and donate to the cause. The balls are microchipped, giving the feeling of a dart game, just a lot more fun.
Fun at the Theme Parks for an Orlando New Years
The theme parks in the Orlando area are filled with fun holiday events, ensuring that parents will be the heroes of 2023 and leading to a 2024 that is destined to be as fun as your trip to the park! We have broken this category down by the big three theme parks, giving a peek into the fun that each park will offer.
• Magic Kingdom and Epcot – Both parks offer a spectacular fireworks display, lighting the sky with a kaleidoscope of fire and color. Epcot offers a variety of NYE parties with live DJs hosting and Magic Kingdom still offers its Christmas parade and Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration, extending the magic of Christmas out a little further.
• Universal Studios Orlando – The spirit of Christmas remains alive at Universal Studios, with most of its Christmas festivities still being in play. Additionally, the Hard Rock Hotel is hosting a New Year’s Eve Lobby Party, featuring special desserts, DJs, roaming magicians, a satellite showing of the ball drop at Times Square at midnight, and a midnight balloon drop with a champagne toast.
• SeaWorld – As with the other theme parks, Christmas continues at SeaWorld through January 2, but they are also offering a midnight firework show on New Year’s Eve.
Adult Celebrations on New Year’s Eve
As you can imagine, there is a lot going on in Orlando on New Year’s Eve, with most bars and nightclubs offering a celebration. ICEBAR Orlando’s Midnight Kiss offers a frosty way to usher in the new year, perhaps our favorite way, featuring special VIP entry, an open bar, a champagne bar, and premium party favors as well as a special raffle and souvenir photos. Mango’s Tropical Café is offering multiple ways to celebrate, including a live show experience, live DJs, VIP bottle service, and early dining options. Kissimmee’s Old Town New Year’s Eve Celebration provides a family friendly celebration with live music, entertainment, a car show, and a midnight fireworks extravaganza that will be loved by all. (Not entirely adult, but not everyone is able to travel without the kiddos!) Finally, the Sunset Walk Rocking New Year’s Eve Street Party features live musicians, a DJ, street performers, party favors, a confetti storm, and yes, you guessed it, a midnight fireworks finale.
Celebrating at Home with Tuscana Resort
As you begin your New Year’s Eve celebrations in Orlando, you may decide that staying in and exploring the amenities of your Tuscana Resort’s holiday hideaways is the only way you want to usher in 2024. Prepare your favorite lucky new year feast in fully equipped kitchens where the champagne is already chilling (Hoppin’ John made with black eyed peas, pork and rice is a southern staple at the new year) and watch the ball drop on Times Square on state-of-the-art televisions at midnight. Patios that look over the community may provide bird’s eye views of some of the fireworks displays in the area, and when the clock strikes midnight, kissing your favorite traveler for the very first time in 2024 will be an experience that sets the stage for a year filled with good luck, happy moments, and many more special kisses, even when it isn’t midnight!
