New Year’s Eve in Orlando 2012

New Year’s Eve 2012 in Orlando 

Travelocity recently ranked Orlando as the number 1 most popular place to spend New Year’s Eve for 2012. The article specifically cites Universal Studios CityWalk’s Rock in the New Year for a great party near the theme parks with “performances from Smashmouth and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, plenty of nearby clubs, and all-you-can-eat dining, this party will help you start 2012 with a bang!”

The following is a compiled list of other local area New Year’s Eve events with great food options as well as hotel rooms to stay in for those partying extra hard for the new year or just want to take a night out on the town. If you know of any other events for New Year’s Eve, please feel free to post in the comments and I will try to update this post!
