New Year’s Eve Celebration at SeaWorld

SeaWorld Orlando is excited to announce that guests of all ages can ring in the New Year with a spectacular night of fireworks! This fantastic physically distanced New Year’s Eve celebration at SeaWorld on Thursday, Dec. 31.



Guests are invited to celebrate New Year’s Eve safely at SeaWorld Orlando on Dec. 31 with limited capacity and enhanced safety procedures. To promote safe physical distancing while still offering incredible views of the fireworks displays around the park, SeaWorld has identified additional viewing locations and added extra shows to provide more opportunities for guests to safely enjoy the festivities this year. The midnight fireworks display and countdown can be experienced from anywhere around SeaWorld’s large central lake, with proper physical distancing in place to help keep everyone safe and healthy. In addition to the countdown at midnight, we will also be hosting three additional performances of our Holiday Reflections fireworks display at 6:30 p.m., 8:00 p.m., and 9:30 p.m., allowing guests of all ages to celebrate the start of a New Year at the New Year’s Eve Celebration at SeaWorld.

Spaced seating, increased sanitation, additional park signage, and additional staffing will be implemented throughout the park, and additional exits will also be added for a safe exit from the park at the conclusion of the display. We’ve even introduced a new area behind Bayside Stadium that will allow for an easy exit after you ring in the New Year!
