Important note: Walt Disney World requires a park pass reservation for all of its theme parks. Magic Kingdom and EPCOT will most likely book to capacity.

Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando do not require reservations, but parking and the parks themselves can reach capacity. It is best to head to any theme park on any big holiday as early as possible and plan to spend your whole day, and night, there.

Walt Disney World has New Year's Eve fireworks at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. Plus, Disney's Hollywood Studios has two nighttime shows. EPCOT tends to have a party environment during New Year's Eve with dance parties and DJs in many of the World Showcase pavilions, and hats and horns being distributed to guests in the evening.
