New Years Eve at Universal

First time at Universal for NYE. When I booked, I assumed they would have something special. The hours finally came out and they close at 10:00. We are staying at Portofino Bay and they are hosting an event but at $535 for a family of four, it doesn’t seem like a great value, especially when we have park to park tickets for that day.

So, any ideas for a family looking for something from 9:00 - 12:30. Would like to keep the price around $250 if possible but would consider other options. Thanks in advance.

I’m following because I’m curious as well!
