Hi, Diana! The theme parks do not have a separately ticketed event on New Year's Eve. All of the festivities for the day are included in your regular theme park admission. Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney's Hollywood Studios will all see late night hours so that guests can celebrate the arrival of the new year, and each of those theme parks will have a special show (fireworks, music, or a special Illuminations at EPCOT) to coincide with the clock striking midnight.
I do want to mention that New Year's Eve is one of those holidays where the theme parks may close if they fill to capacity. Once you decide which park you want to be in at midnight, I suggest that you try to get there no later than mid-morning to early afternoon, and plan to stay through the ringing in of the new year. This way, you won't risk not being able ot get into the park you want to be in at midnight.
Have a wonderful time!
