We are on this cruise! We will be flying in on the 31st and spending two nights at the Art of Animation--Lion King Suite. We will be going to Magic Kingdom for New Year's Day. Then off to a hotel at Port Canaveral so that we can go to the Kennedy Space Centre. Then onto the cruise! We will be in cabin 5518, category 8A.
It will be me, DH, DS(11), and DD(8). This will be our 4th Disney cruise. We have been on the Magic and the Dream before.

I will definitely be decorating my door again, and this time, I think I will do the FE!

Janet

Welcome, Janet. We are also planning on flying in Dec. 31st and hit MK, Epot and Universal. The Art of Animation suites look great! Are they open for booking? Will have to get my TA on that after the first! Bonnie

Bonnie, I have already booked my room at AoA, so yes, they are available for booking.

I hear the 31st is the busiest day of the year. What have you all heard?

Do you mean flying or going to the parks? We're flying in on the 31st and spending New Year's Eve at the hotel. Not hitting the parks until the 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I'm sure whichever park we choose will be packed on New Year's Day...but we have no other options.

Going to the parks. Early NYD was really great at DL. Minimal crowds. NYE at DL was fun but a crowded nightmare. I have no first hand experience at WDW. Just researched it recently in regards to NYE.

We are doing the same. Flying in NYE and then going to MK on the 1st. I've heard that the parks are super crazy NYE. For NY day, if we get there early, we should be okay. We've done MK twice before so we're really only going again to see the new fantasyland. Once we do that we can leave if it's too busy. The rest of our time will be spent at downtown disney since we've already done all the other parks. I would love to go back to Epcot, but that'll have to wait for another trip.

We just booked the Art of Animation Nemo suite with Deluxe Dining Plan! We'll probably do Universal on the 1st (want to see the Harry Potter's World), then MK, then Epot.

Does anyone know if there would be any New Year's celebration at Downtown Disney? We're flying in late that afternoon and would like to do something that evening, saving the parks for the next 3 days.


Happy New Year to All! Bonnie

Just cruises the DVC boards and it looks like I won't be getting a reservation at anywhere but Saratoga Springs for NYE. Not sure I want to stay there. Will probably have to go back to my original plan if flying out on the second. Boo.
