    Hi Sandy!

        5....4....3...2...1..HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!  Honestly, I would be at the Magic Kingdom bright and early on New Year's Eve day.  You are not guaranteed entry, even if you are staying on property - you are only guaranteed entry into "a" park.  So unless you want to ring in the new year at Animal Kingdom, I would be there for park opening.  I hate to sound like a nagging mom, but whatever you do, don't leave the park once you arrive!  If you want to spiffy up a little for the evening, you could always rent a locker and store a few must have items.  Also, if you are looking for a little mid day nap, you can always try the Hall of Presidents...but, you didn't hear that from me!  Have a fabulous vacation and an even better New Year!

    Much pixie dust,
