So I had this bizarre, ridiculous, un-called-for idea today.
I should really spend New Year's Eve at Disneyland this year...
I've been wanting to ever since the new millennium, and I'm thinking about fulfilling that desire come this 31st.
But before I decide I want to get some feedback. So I have a rather long list of questions, because I like to be prepared as much as possible.
Who's been? Is it worth it? Is this a dumb idea?
One big reason I am thinking about going New Years Eve is that I have two complimentary parkhopper tickets that I received when I was a cast member, and I want to do something out-of-the-ordinary with them . If I use one for myself and one for someone special, and we get there early, will we run into any problems getting in with those tickets? Will parking be an issue? When exactly would be a good time to get there? How about park hopping - should we risk it? Any estimates when the gates will close off?
What special events/entertainment is there to choose from? Is there anything not-to-be-missed out there?
I know there are countdown events going on simultaneously at DL and DCA. Which one should we shoot for? Main Street or Paradise Pier? The castle or the DCA lagoon? Or somewhere else? How early should we stake out a spot (and be prepared not to move for the duration of the evening)?
Any information is greatly appreciated!
