Amazing Orlando New Year’s Events for Kids

Kids’ New Year’s Eve Party at Legoland

Who says New Year’s Eve is just for adults? Orlando is bursting with kid-friendly New Year’s Eve parties. Here are our three favorite ways to ring in the new year – family-style.

Walt Disney World

Welcome in the new year at the Happiest Place on Earth! Walt Disney World is no stranger to holiday magic – and that includes New Year’s Eve. This month, book a ticket for one of Walt Disney World’s numerous dining specials, including New Year’s Eve Dinner at the World Show Place Pavilion and at Disney’s  Contemporary Resort. The fun continues inside the parks, with the Fantasy In The Sky Fireworks at Magic Kingdom and New Year’s Countdown Fireworks at Epcot.

Crayola Experience 

Celebrating NYE with the kids? There’s no better place than Crayola Experience! The first annual New Year’s Eve celebration includes colorful crafts and lively character appearances. Best of all – the countdown is early. From 11am to 3pm, usher in 2018 with special afternoon countdowns at Cafe Crayola. Top off the event with a bopping DJ – the perfect way to dance into the new year.


Ring in  2018 with thousands of bricks! This season, Legoland is hosting the premiere event for young builders at the Kids' New Year's Party, which is included with admission. The end-of-the-year party includes 7pm fireworks over the Legoland Lake, a scavenger hunt to win prizes and the opportunity to help build a massive New Year’s Eve mosaic.
