We're considering taking the kids (ages 12 and 10) to WDW and Universal for New Year's week this coming year, as they don't have to return to school until January 9. Part of the planning is figuring out where to stay and where to go on New Year's Eve.
I've been to Epcot and Hollywood Studios on New Year's Eve in the past. Super-crowded with ridiculous attraction wait times, but otherwise really really fun and festive. Also, Magic Kingdom has been closed at capacity at least once on New Year's Eve.
There are very limited on-line details about Universal and IOA New Year's Eve festivities. And as we have 2 kids with us, anything 21-and-over at CityWalk is out.
So the questions:
- Has anybody spent New Year's Eve at USF or IOA ? If so, how was it ? And how did it compare to New Year's Eve at a Disney park ?
- Historically have other parks -- Disney or Universal -- closed from hitting capacity on New Year's Eve besides the Magic Kingdom ?
- Do the Universal "Front of the line" passes that you get if you stay in a Universal hotel still get you on rides fairly quickly -- even on super-crowded dates such as New Year's Eve or New Year's Day ?
All info and opinions appreciated, and thanks!!
