If it were just adults, I would say Epcot, cause you can drink at Epcot, you can't drink at MK.

Although depending on the age of your teens, ask them which rides they like better. They may prefer Mission Space, Test Track, Soarin, or they may prefer Big Thunder, Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Buzz.

We arent' going to be down there at all, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

Other past threads on the Theme Park board have said that Epcot is better on the super busy days like NYE, because it's bigger and can absorb more people better. That being said, someone also posted a picture of NYE from a recent year and people were literally shoulder to shoulder. :scared1:

One note on park hopping... from what I've read it's possible that either/both park could reach capacity and close that day, in which case you could get stuck trying to hop.

Again other posts on this topic recommend picking the park you want to be in for the day, get there early, and plan to stay there.

Whatever you decide, have a great time!! :banana:

If this year is like it has been in the past on both the 30th and 31st the MK has the special dual fireworks from behind the castle with a mirror set from barges in Bay Lake and around the MK. We always take in the MK fireworks on the 30th and either watch the NYE MK fireworks from the Poly beach or go to either EPCOT or MGM. IIRC MGM has special fireworks on NYE whereas EPCOT is the same as any other night.
