Mandy and I rang in the New Year at Disney World in Florida. If you’re interested, check out the photo set.
One bit of advice if you are planning a trip to Disney World over the Christmas/New Year’s holidays: expect a crowd. The week between Chrismas and New Year’s is their busiest of the year. On New Year’s Eve, the Magic Kingdom was filled to capacity — over 70,000 people — and spent much of the day closed to visitors who weren’t staying on the resort.
The crowds practically disappear after New Year’s Day, though. The contrast was remarkable — especially with the Extra Magic Hours that we were able to take advantage of, being resort guests and all. In the days following New Year’s, we were able to made it on all the rides we wanted, usually with less than a 15 minute wait. That includes rides like Expedition Everest (highly recommended) and the Rock ‘n Rollercoaster (oh yeah!).
