Still looking for New Year's Eve plans?


Why not rock 2010 out with Bret Michaels? Universal Orlando City Walk has a special New Year's Eve celebration with the reality TV rock star himself. The party goes from 8pm to 2am, and it's a great way to ring in the New Year.


It's not a cheap night, though -- ticket prices are $139.99 (you can save $5 if you're an American Express card member) but they include quite a bit:
  • Bret Michaels concert

  • All-you-can-eat gourmet fare, including filet mignon, jumbo shrimp, and a wide variety of decadent desserts

  • Admission to 7 different City Walk clubs

  • Midnight champagne and confetti

The full menu is quite impressive, featuring several of City Walk's finest restaurants:

  • Chef Carving Stations serving Mediterranean Holiday Chicken Roulade & Roasted Filet Mignon wrapped in Applewood Smoked Bacon Served with Red Wine Sauce and Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

  • Seafood Station: Jumbo Shrimp and Crab Claws served with fresh lemons, cocktail sauce and sauce Louie

  • Mixed Field Green Salad with seasonal toppings

  • International and domestic Cheese Display with Fruit, Gourmet Crackers and breads

  • Lobster Garganelli In a Brown Butter, Sage and Walnut Sauce

  • Jalapeno Poppers with a cool Ranch Dip

  • Mini Rueben Sandwiches

  • Chicken Wellingtons with a Bordelaise Sauce

  • Elaborate Display of Miniature Pastries, Cakes, Pies and Tortes

  • Pat O' Briens®: Jammin Jambalaya served in a giant Jambalaya Pan

  • Bob Marley's Jerk Pit: Jamaican Beef and Veggie Patties served with yucca fries and topped with chipotle ketchup

  • Latin Quarter™: Whole Cuban Roasted Pork Loin served with onion Mojo and Cuban bread

  • Jimmy Buffet's® Margaritaville®: Cheeseburger in Paradise Station

  • CityWalk® Wing Station: Jerk Wings, Pat O'Brien Bloody Mary Wings and Teriyaki Wings with blue cheese dip and carrot & celery sticks

The food is nearly worth the price of admission; it's a big ticket bargain, if you can swing the price.


Book now at Universal's website -- tickets are still available for the celebration.
