We will be arriving to Disney mid afternoon on Jan 1 and will be staying at the Grand Californian Hotel until Jan 3, checking out about 7.30pm. before we fly home to Australia.
I know this is THE busiest time. I plan to get 3 day park hoppers to be as flexible as possible with our limited time.
We will have spent a week at WDW earlier on this trip so our aim is just to do the rides that are only at DLR plus POC, HM and IASW. I also plan to get the World of Colour dinner package.
I have a few questions please I hope I can get some help with.
In past years have the parks reached capacity on Jan 1 and have been closed by the afternoon?
Would Ridemax be worthwhile to us?
Would the 3hr. Christmas tour be worthwhile, assuming I can get one for the afternoon, which would give us FP's to HM & IASW at the busiest times & a spot for the parade?
What is the difference between magic mornings and EMH? We can enter DCA early on the 2nd & DLR on the 3rd, right?
Anything else I should know, please feel free to share.
