    I have reservations from 29/dec thru jan/4 at Disney Portland Riverside. For New years eve we want to celebrate at Epcot. For inside guest, we have access to the park at any time? or we have to stay very early in the morning too, like outside visitors?

    Hello Betzaida!

    When the parks reach a certain level of occupancy, they stop admitting all guests - even those staying on Disney property. This happens very rarely, but New Years Eve is one of those days when this can be a real possibility.

    If you want to be in the park as the clock strikes midnight, I would advise that you arrive in the morning and stay in the park all day in order to avoid being turned away as the day goes on. The good news is that there is so much to do in Epcot and you should have no trouble spending the day there. There are tons of great restaurants to choose from, and I would suggest choosing one to book a meal in the afternoon so that you can relax and rest your feet.

    Have a wonderful time on your upcoming vacation! I'm sure it'll be an unforgettable way to ring in the New Year!
