    Going 2 Epcot on NYE w. my bf of 4 years. We are 21- Is this the best park for us on NYE? Also, want to dress comfy for daytime park going and a little nicer for NYE evening, but dont want to go back to hotel incase EPC reaches max capacity. Any suggestion

    Hi Alyssa!

         Love this question!  I must admit, I am more than a little jealous though!!!  Epcot is the ideal place for a couple of young adults to ring in the New Year for a number of reasons.  First, as you know, Epcot is HUGE and can handle tons of guests without feeling overwhelming.  It is also the most "adult friendly" of the four major parks, in my opinion.  With its fabulous selection of restaurants, you also stand an excellent chance of getting the Advanced Dining Reservation of your choice.  However, YOU MUST ARRIVE EARLY!  Many folks are under the impression that those guests staying on Walt Disney World property are guaranteed entry into the parks.  This is only partly true - you are guaranteed entry into a park, but not necessarily the one that you want to enter!

            Sooo, I would head over to Epcot as soon as you can and rent a locker for the day.  I totally get that you want to dress things up a bit in the evening and I have a few suggestions.  If you are able to get a locker, I would stash a few necessities to bling things up for the evening!  Let's say that you are wearing jeans in the day - why not store some high heel boots and cuter top, along with some bigger jewelry in the locker?  This way you can update your look, without running the risk of leaving the park.  Happy New Year!

    Much pixie dust,
