This New Years Eve In Techno Town

Here's the Blog's annual roundup of New Years Eve events to consider.  Refer to individual websites for full details and advance ticket orders.

The NYE's party at Tier Nightclub combines Top 40 & Dance from premier local DJ A-Rock and DJ Nova.   ($40)
More of a Hip Hop slant for partiers at Vain Nightclub with Glen Davis and Daphne Joy.  ($20 until 12, $40 until 12 with open bar, $60 with open bar all night.)
Suite B Lounge has House music all night with DJ's Andre R, Jhon Alvarez and Cheyenne M.
(Until 11:30pm $10, After $15)
Wall Street Plaza is the place to get 9 venues for the price of one although there is only dancing in a few of them.  This usually sells out.
Independent Bar is having their annual 80's Prom Night and admission is half price if you dress in prom attire!  ($10)
House and Dance music from DJ's Justin Faze and Adam Flurk at Vintage Lounge on Orange Avenue.  ($10)
Another multi-venue event takes place on Church Street and includes admission to Chillers, Big Belly Brewery and Lattitudes.  Unfortunately, the closed Antigua is no longer there.  Also, home of the Orange Drop at midnight!
(Click on flyer to see the numerous admission/drink packages offered.) 
The Attic has increasingly gone EDM and Saturday night resident DJ Bingoballs returns on NYE for more of it!  ($40)
At 180 Grey Goose Lounge atop Amway Center admission will get you unlimited drinks, hors d'oeuvres and a private fireworks show.  As most of the fun is outside, check the weather first!   ($75)
B.B. Kings Blues Club will give you a table and feed you a 3-course meal for their NYE package ft. their All-Star blues band.  
($80 Package; Standing Room with no meal is $40)
Down the road at the Rosen Plaza Hotel's Backstage Night Club they are having a Roaring 20's Party ft. a live band and DJ LaPause.
($10 Advance, $20 Door)
The most crowded night of the year at Atlantic Dance Hall is their NYE party ft. DJ Tony Z (Planet Hollywood).  (Advance tickets at (407) 934-7639 cost $39 GA and $85 VIP.)  The latter gets you upstairs with dessert and a view of EPCOT fireworks.
At least 4 dance parties at EPCOT with one in Future World and three in World Showcase.  The big fun is outside China with DJ Dominick Morrison (Mannequins, Vintage) spinning Top 40/Dance and outside Italy with DJ Mark Sanchez (Club V, Firestone Live) spinning House/Dance! There's a Latin dance party outside America.
(Disney Admission Required)
At Downtown Disney Marketplace the Andre Caram Band ft. Drey-C will be playing Top 40/Dance songs at the Waterside Stage.  DJ Andrew Michael will be spinning the same between band sets.  

Outside Wetzel's Pretzels at Downtown Disney West Side, DJ Lon (PI Live, Celebrate Tonight, Retro Room) will be spinning Top 40.  (FREE)
Admission at DisneyQuest gets you unlimited games, 2 DJ dance parties and a fast food dinner choice.  8pm - 1am. Sells out.

Splitsville will be 21+ upstairs beginning at 10pm and they're offering meal/bowling packages starting at $100.  Top 40/Hits music. All ages downstairs. 

For the fourth year in a row, Pleasure Island clubs will be dark.  No fireworks.

A walled-off event in the CW clubs includes live band REO Speedwagon outside.  Inside you'll find DJ PopRoXxX at The Groove, DJ Leony at Latin Quarter and DJ Smooth at Rising Star.  Admission includes full all-you-can-eat buffet meal.
The revolving dance floor still spins at Amphitheatre and Gabriel & Dresden (USA) will be there to usher in the new year.  Resident DJ DOCO opens and DJ Suzy Solar will be there too!    ($15)
If you're in Tampa and want to celebrate New Year's twice, head over to the Hard Rock Cafe at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino for the 2am to 6am afterparty featuring DJ Baby Anne (USA).  At 3am ring in the new year again on the U.S. west coast!
($25 advance on-line, $40 door)

btw..we really need to come up with a new name for Orlando. that "techno" town thing just isn't very accurate. ;)

Thanks for adding this to the list of options. Jimmy Joslin is sure to make it a great event.

I highly recommend everyone who is not sure which option to choose from to celebrate NYE at Epcot.

Here's another one for the list: Thee Grotto is reopening after 7 years closed, on New Years Eve. It's on State Lane behind the B of A builiding.
