    Yes, HUGE celebration, REALLY crowded!
    DCA is a lot less crowded and so much fun!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Both DL and DCA are great places to spend the new year! Expect massive crowds of people in DL, and only nominally less in DCA. You won't get on many rides. But you probably won't want to. NYE is a huge party at both parks, and it's one I'm always glad to participate in.

    I was there last new years eve, its pretty much like any other day except there was a looooot more people more then usual and they gave out party hats to all the people there with 08 on it and little whistle things, and i know at DCA they had a dj by the boardwalk and at Disneyland as well. it was pretty fun having a good time with the music and the countdown was most exciting!

    Above: that was last year 12/31/2007


    Below: here's a picture of 12/31/2006, with very good seats only a couple of rows away from Sleeping Beauty, right before midnight countdown:




    Above: It looks like I was further away, but I swear it was only a few rows back. The characters came out on the ledge etc... and then the actual 'Fantasy In The Sky' Midnight fireworks began:







    Here's a YouTube Video I found from 2006 , new years eve......(12/31/2006) which was the last time that the weather actually cooperated, and they did the full show:

    I was there, that night. Got hit in the face by the beach balls at 3:46? or wherever. Not pleasant when the beach balls come fast and furious and knock your glasses right off and have to forage on the dark ground, in crowds looking .....But I was there, nonetheless !!!!










    2007....but below....here's 2008

    Are the crowds the same the next day? or is everyone tired out from partying, because I'm going to be there New Year's Day!

    Re: what is disneyland like on new year's eve?

    I've been there the last 4 New Years Day.....and I think it depends on the day of the week. Last time, New Years Day fell on a Wednesday......and it didn't seem like it was crazy busy.....but it definitely wasn't empty---1/1/2008.


    1/1/2007...was that a Tuesday ? That was extremely busy as the day progressed. I remember trying to get on the Monorail during the evening, and couldn't, as both lines were wrapped around the mountain.

    1/1/2006.....My memory escapes me....but that was either Sunday, or Monday? ......The Park was really unorganized as the offical New years wasn't being celebrated on the correct day, or something. I don't remember what the issue was, however, they were busy because they were in 50th mode, and there was some upset because fireworks were cancelled for some reason, weather most likely.

    I don't think the Park ever shuts down on the actual day of New Years.....but they can get busy during the evening, and then foul weather plays a factor. There always seems to be weather issues during New Years, more than any other time.

    As for this year. Doesn't 1/1/2009 fall in a Friday? The last Friday before the Park ends the season two-days later. So, I don't know. I'll leave the predictions to others. Expect unpredictable weather !

    It's lots and lots of people plus lots and lots of people with lots and lots of their friends who bring lots and lots of people and sometimes bring lots and lots of their friends. If you think that's lots of people you also have to count lots and lots of families who bring lots and lots of extended family who bring lots and lots of their family who bring lots and lots of friends and they bring lots and lots of friends... so basically you add all that up, square it, toss in some babies for good measure, subtract a couple rides that go down and add in an extra hour to most lines and you have New Years Eve.

    Heaving with people. Seriously, if you any issues at all about personal space, stay far away on New Years Eve.

    And you can't leave the park at all, cuz you won't get back in.

    If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.
