    Hello! My family will be at Disney world on New Year's Eve with an 18 month old. I know it is a super busy day at the park, and I have heard that you should arrive at open and stay until close. Is re-entry guaranteed or even possible? Or park hopping?

    Hello, Sydney!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    What a great way to bring in the New Year!  There really is nothing better than celebrating New Year's Day at Walt Disney World.  I know you will have a BLAST!

    On special days such as New Year's Eve, it is HIGHLY recommended that you arrive first thing in the morning and stay till park closing.  The chances are very high that the park will reach capacity.  Once it does, there is no way to guarantee re-entry and the chances of getting back in later are very slim.  Park hopping offers no guarantees as well.  The Magic Kingdom is the favorite on this day. 

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Shopping has never been easier.  The Shop Disney Parks App offers so much at your fingertips.  Check it out today!

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
