    Hi all. My husband and I will be at WDE 12/30 - 12/31. We're early 30s and will have no children with us. Which park is best for New Year's Eve night? Also this is our first time, what must we do/see in two days? Thanks so much!

    I don't think you can go wrong visiting any of the theme parks on New Year's Eve, but my favorite has always been Disney's Hollywood Studios.  In year's past, they've had live music, people dancing, and an awesome fireworks display!  It's such great fun to ring in the new year with a few thousand of your closest friends - the spirit in the air is intoxicating!

    Whatever you do, go early and plan to stay all day.  The parks can close due to capacity on New Year's Eve, and the two that generally fill up the fastest are the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Rent a locker to store warmer clothes to put on in the evening, and just plan to be at the park of your choice for the long haul!  Fast passes get snapped up quickly as well, so if there is something you definitely don't want to miss riding (like Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios), grab that Fast Pass first thing in the morning.

    As for what the must sees are, that depends on your interests.  When it's just my husband and I, we love EPCOT.  I could wander the World Showcase for an entire vacation, taking in all of the entertainment, the shops, and the holiday atmosphere.  We also love the attractions like Test Track and Soarin', which is a must do for our family.

    I hope your visit is a little bit of everything - merry, memorable, and filled with Disney Magic!
