We are planning our first trip at NYE. We plan to arrive 12/28 and leave 1/2. DH and I will be at BWV, but two other couples coming with us are going to have to get rooms. They think they can get rooms cheaper than POP, possibly a Marriott Courtyard. This means staying offsite, and I have been telling them that it could be a nightmare staying offset during that time period. How crowded did it get this past year? I understand that the parks will be crowded, (we usually go Easter week and are somewhat use to the crowds), but I really am worried that they might have trouble staying offsite. Any thoughts/suggestions?
