I'm currently planning to visit TDR for the New Years Event. My priority is seeing both the New Years greetings and eating the New Years exclusive foods so I was thinking of arriving on Jan 4th at about 6PM and leaving the parks on Jan 7th at about 3 PM. I went to DisneySea on Jan 1 one year when Mythica was still around but have never visited when there was no event before. Questions: 1. How early should I grab a spot if my goal is to be 2nd row or better at the front area of Mediterranean Harbor and Castle Front? 2. Would it be worth shifting my trip a day later (5th to 8th) so that I can experience more "non-event" or should I keep my current itinerary? I am able to park hop.
