Whether you have kids or whether you're a big kid yourself, Disney World has magic aplenty to ring in the New Year.

Sin City celebrates everything in style, and New Year is just one more excuse to throw a great party. Party from dusk till dawn on the Strip, the largest street with the largest casinos, as limousines and stretch Hummers drive by with tourists and celebrities alike. If you like to try your luck on the first of the year, venture into any one of the casinos and get free drink service as you gamble.
It's not called Hotlanta just because of the temperature, though it rarely freezes over in the winter. There's always a party nearby in the Peach State as everyone waits for the 800-pound peace to drop. Nibble on hors d'ouevres with the Atlanta symphony or dance the night away at famous night clubs like the Cosmopolitan Lounge.
