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 Stage! Details.
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.
