Orlando in Dec

Hi there,

I am off to Orlando on the 28th Dec for 10 days for the first time. Can anyone give me some advice on what it is like on New Years' Eve? Where to go? Also, what are the parks like at that time of year? Overly busy?

All advice welcome!!!!

We usually notice the crowds at Disney are HORRIBLE until 1/2- then its really empty. So, maybe plan on spending your Disney time after the new year.

But, you'll be there in time to catch the Candlelight Processional at Epcot- check their website and you can book a specialty dinner at one of the hotels w/preferred seating.

Also- Illuminations on NYE is wonderful- they do a special segment which is really neat! :D

For length of time in the parks, I say a full day in Epcot and the MK, but you can do the Animal Kingdom in the morning and then head over to MGM after lunch.
