We just made reservations at the HILTON at TDL which gives us the ability to get tickets to the countdown special party. We are concerned becuase we can not get our tickets until 7pm and I have seen numerous people say that people start to get in line at 9am. If we get at line after 7pm I am afraid that we will not have a good spot for the parade any advice. I have myself and wife and 3 year old that will be going with me. Ihear it is a great experience.
