we are booked at beach club 12/30-1/9. It will be our first NYE at the parks. We are excited and my 7 year old daughter is excited to see the Osbourne lights she was only about 3 last time she saw them and she doesn't remember them. While we understand it will be crowded, we are hoping that the second week of our stay we can hit anything that we didn't the first week with ease the second week. On a side note, does Universal do anything special for NYE?

Sounds like the crowds on NYD aren't so bad. We 're going January 1-7 and I was worried but figured We'd take it slow at the beginning of the week and try to get on rides during the second part.

New Years Eve was crowded no doubt about it. But I give EPCOT an excellent rating on being able to handle the crowds. Like I said, most of the time it didn't feel as crowded as it was especially if you avoided going deep into the dance areas. World showcase had a set of 3 taped lines all the way around like the lines on a road. If you wanted to move around world showcase you got into your "lane" and it was smooth sailing. There were CM all over enforcing the lanes. If you wanted to stop and look at thing, you get out of the traffic lanes. They also had several backstage areas open most of the evening to facilitate moving around. I traveled behind the back of the Imagination Building to between Canada and big building before UK. I also traveled behind Mexico to over by TT and MS.

I had heard the horror stories of NYE but I never encountered them. Yes I waited 30 min. for JIYI and 40 min. for Nemo. I would do NYE again if I could combine it with several quiet days at the end.

That's a great idea, to make a"traffic" lane. I hate it when people stop in the middle of the walk way. It's especially hard for people in electric scooters.

Where do you suggest for NYD, a park with evening magic hours or dtd?
