    We are coming for New Years this year & wondering is it true that even if you are a resort guest the parks fill up & you might not be able to get in? We want to do the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show at 5:15 but are scared we will not be able to get

    It is true that if the park reaches capacity your family will not be permitted re-entry to the park, no matter whether you're resort guests or not.  And because holidays are some of the busiest times at WDW, guests visiting during those time frames do run the risk of being turned away when the parks are full.  The only surefire way to avoid that situation, Stephen, is to stay inside the park once you've gained entry.  There's no way to predict whether or not the park will reach capacity during your visit.  If you have your heart set on ringing in the New Year inside the Magic Kingdom, I'd stay put if I were you.  Your best bet would be to enjoy the Spirit of Aloha dinner show an a different night.  Good luck!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
