    Hi Roberta!

    Thank you for sending us another question about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. In my opinion, your travel dates happen to fall during the most exciting week of the Disney calendar. I cannot wait for you to experience all of the holiday and New Year's magic. I'm directing you to a link on the site, describing the different New Year's Eve events taking place within the Parks. I do know of another special event taking place at DisneyQuest, however this will require a separate admission ticket. 

    My suggestion is to select one Park to celebrate in and arrive early in the day. Take your time exploring all of the attractions, entertainment and more. Be prepared to move leisurely, as crowds will be quite heavy on these days. Utilize FastPass when available and take in the wonderful detailed storytelling of the park. Many guests will try to rush through and hit as many attractions as possible. On busy days, it's best to pick a few favorites (try to utilize FastPass) and understand you will not be able to see and do it all. With the right mindset, you'll have the most magical time with your family, concluded by a magnificent display of New Year's fireworks to ring in 2014.

    Any other questions, Roberta? I'm delighted to help you plan your first trip to Walt Disney World.
