When you're young staying up late on New Year's Eve is almost as exciting as Christmas morning. We said almost! Try as they might your little ones may not have the willpower to keep their eyes open when the clock strikes midnight but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate a new year as a family. Here are a few fun ways to ring in 2019 with family-friendly New Years Eve events in Orlando.
