New Years Eve Options

Welcome to Save Pleasure Island Blog's annual roundup of New Years Eve dance club options at the Attractions as well as in the city of Orlando. Visit venue websites for more details.  In many cases it's cheaper to buy an advance ticket than to just show up.  Additional venues will be added throughout the week as information comes in!
ATTRACTIONS AREA
PLEASURE ISLAND:  For the 6th year in-a-row the Pleasure Island dance clubs will be dark on NYE.  Paradiso37 is taking reservations for their black tie NYE party that includes a 5-course dinner. Raglan Road has Irish bands with free champagne at 7pm and midnight!
DOWNTOWN DISNEY: DJ Lon will be performing on the Waterside Stage as well as the new music stage near Cirque. There will be no NYE fireworks this year.
ATLANTIC DANCE HALL: Big NYE party featuring DJ TonyZ; Top 40. Details.
EPCOT CENTER: DJ's playing Dance music at 4 countries and at Future World, huge NYE Illuminations fireworks show and they have some rides too. Best NYE party in town!  Details.
DISNEY HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS: Great EDM from DJ Elliot!
MAGIC KINGDOM:  DJ Miles spinning Top 40 & Line Dances in front of Cinderella's Castle!
SEA WORLD:  They've got music and fireworks on NYE but not aware of any dance party.
UNIVERSAL CITYWALK: It's a pricy event but it includes a dinner buffet with filet mignon and shrimp and then dance music in all the clubs!  The Groove has DJ's Ernie Biggs and M-Squared. I believe there's a soft opening of new Mexican restaurant Antojitos. Orlando's largest dance floor will be open outside adjacent the Plaza StageDetails.

I-DRIVE
ICEBAR: For $125 you get an open bar for two hours, midnight champagne inside the ice bar itself and a dessert buffet.  DJ dance music in the Fire Lounge.
BACKSTAGE LOUNGE: Pretend you're attending a 50's era Oscar Award party as that will be the vibe of the night at this NYE party inside the Rosen Plaza Hotel.

ORLANDO DOWNTOWN & CITY
CHURCH STREET:  New York drops an apple and Orlando drops an orange.  Numerous party and drink packages offered.  Downtown's largest party.   Details
WALL STREET PLAZA:  Another large NYE party this year is at Wall Street Plaza.  There are 9 venues within the complex including two DJ's playing inside and out.
EMBER: No cover or packages required.  Drink specials.  Party at your own pace!
FIRESTONE:  Dark. Unfortunately the show with Nicky Romero (NL) fell through.
TIER NIGHTCLUB: DJ Sinatra returns for a night of Top 40/Dance/Hip Hop.
ROXY:  Perhaps Orlando's only Dubstep NYE party as DJ ƱZ (USA) is in town.
PARLIAMENT HOUSE: Dance singer Kimberley Locke & DJ Scott Robert.

TAMPA
AMPHITHEATRE:  How better to kick-off a new year than with DJ Baby Anne (USA)!  With resident DJ DOCO and others!
HARD ROCK CAFE:  DJ music inside and out with Blaze and Just Steph in the lounge and then outside in the "Breaks Garden" they have Agent K & Bella, Tony Faline, Sharaz and more!
JACKSON's:  Our favorite DJ Mondo spinning EDM at this Harbor Island club.
