    DH & I arrive 11am on 1/1/13. We want to experience HDDR and the Boardwalk. Do you suggest the 4 or 6:15 HDDR? What time does the Boardwalk entertainment start/end? Any other suggestions for how to celebrate the New Year w/out park tickets? Thanks!

    Hi, Kendall!  I'd probably choose the 6:15 Hoop Dee Doo Revue, then head over to the Boardwalk.  You'll likely find the Boardwalk entertainers out and about by then, and you may be able to see some of the Illuminations show from EPCOT later in the evening.

    You could also head to Jellyrolls or the Atlantic Dance Hall at the Boardwalk.  Jellyrolls is a dueling piano bar with lots of great music.  If you enjoy dancing, you have to check out the lively nightclub vibe of the Atlantic Dance Hall.

    You could also head to Downtown Disney and maybe enjoy dessert at Ghiradelli's, or you could grab a cocktail at Paradiso 37.  When you're through, you could check out some of the great shops in the Downtown Disney marketplace.

    I hope this gives you some ideas!
