What To Do In Orlando On 12/31

There’s a full day of official events this afternoon, including the last day of Orlando Bowl Week Fan HQ on International Drive. We’re sending Fan HQ out with a bang thanks to Georgia and Nebraska pep rallies late this afternoon. Orlando also has a bunch of New Year’s Eve options. If you need more ideas for what to do while you’re in town, check out our Orlando Bowl Week City Guide for more recommendations on attractions, dining, shopping, nightlife and more.
