    New Years Eve 2010 Questions

    Good Evening,

    I haven't posted in a while, but I have a couple questions that I have been unable to find answers to elsewhere, so I thought I should ask here.

    This is my first time going to the park on New Years Eve, and I was wondering what the schedule of events is usually like? Are there any additional events or shows that I should be prepared for? What time does the park usually hit capacity?

    Does anyone have any other tips or suggestions to make the most of this holiday in the park?

    I appreciate any and all feedback...thanks!

    Thank you!

    Yeah I figured it's going to be crazy, I'm just curious if there is anything special that happens that day/day I should be aware of.

    Also I'm going to be at the resort through the 3rd, do the crowds drop off significantly after NYE?

    Disneyland definitely hits capacity New Years! I'd say by early afternoon people are getting turned away. DCA has a lot of fun dance areas, each of which are sponsored by a different local radio station, and I think DL does that too.

    DL shoots off fireworks at midnight, and years past DCA has done a mini pyro display on the lagoon. Also, they usually hand out plastic top hats and horns, which are A LOT of fun!

    i hope you don't mind me hijacking your thread for a moment dcaftw. but i too had a question and didn't wanna waste space w/ another thread.

    i was thinking of going for new years (AP here), if i were to show up in the morning before they stop selling tickets, get a hand stamp and leave, then return around 7pm, would i still be allowed in since i was there early or not?

    I was at Disneyland New Years 2006 and by was it crowded. It was like being in a can of sardines. If you want to do the count down in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle get there way earlier and stake your claim.

    They opened up a backstage area between Main St and Tomorrowland to keep the masses moving. It was hard to get to places because they had some paths closed and you could only walk one way.

    As far as extras they did set up different areas around the park for music and dancing. I think they handed out noisemakers and other fun stuff too.

    It was an experience, but I don't think I would do it again.

    They will let you back in once it they haven't hit capasity if they have go to dca for a couple hours around 10 they let more people in never had a problem getting back in but they sometimes force you to go to DCA for a couple hours. I have gone many New Years Eve I have an PAP.

    Normally it would, but with the BCS Championship game at the Rose Bowl on Jan 7, there will be a lot of Texas and Alabama fans in town and I'm sure they will make there way to the park.

    Re: New Years Eve 2010 Questions

    I've been at Disneylan for New Years Eve 3 times now and I know from experience that'll be crowded.

    Let me give you and others some tips:

    1.) Arrive super early since the M&F Parking Structure will be filled up. And the other Parking areas will fill up too.

    2.) Get Fastpasses for Space Mountain, Splash Mountain and Indy early as these rides will run out of FP's quickly. For Indy and Splash, the Single Rider Line is your best alternative as the SLR is faster than the FP.

    3.) If you can't be at the castle for the countdown, ISASW is another alternative. The ROA is another good one as well.

    4.) Try to hit the popular rides as early as possible.

    5.) Make sure that if you leave and plan to return later, get a handstamp.

    6.) Try to find a hotel with a room available since it'll make your day better. Plus you can buy tickets at the hotel if it's a Good Neighbor Hotel.

    7.) If you plan to meet Mickey Mouse, go to his house in Toontown.

    8.) Princess Fantasy Faire and Pixie Hollow won't have extended hours for NYE. Which means that Pixie Hollow will close at 5PM and Princess Fantasy Faire will close at 6 or 6:30 so plan accordingly if you plan to go to these Meet-and-Greet areas.

    9.) The best time to ride the big rides is at 1AM! People start leaving aroud this time and all lines should be shorter.

    10.) Get a locker first thing since a lot of people will be getting lockers.

    11.) Shopping should be your last thing to do.

    12.) If you plan to eat at a restaurant like the blue bayou, try to get reservations early or go to DTD for more options.

    All entertainment offered during the holiday season will show on NYE. Here is what the entertainment schedule should be like:

    A Christmas Fantasy

    3:30 and 6:30

    Fantasmic!

    9:00, 10:30 and 12:10 AM Weather Permitting

    Believe! In Holiday Magic

    9:25 PM Weather Permitting

    NYE Fireworks (Usually Fantasy in the Sky)

    Midnight

    Others will be listed in you times guide so pick one up at the gates or City Hall. Custodial Cast Members will also have maps and times guides avialable.
