    Hi there... We are visiting Walt Disney World during the very busy Christmas week. Which park has the best New Years Eve Fireworks and party atmosphere. I've read the Magic Kingdom is very busy so visit Epcot. What do you think?

    Hi David!  Yes the week between Christmas and New Years is a very busy time but it is also such a magical and fun time too.  Pick and choose the attractions you want to do most and don't stress over the lines.

    If families have young children I always suggest New Years Eve in the Magic Kingdom.  It is a fun party atmosphere for the younger crowd even though it is quite crowded and busy.  But then again every place you go will be crowded and busy.  We were in Walt Disney World for the millennium and all parks were maxed out but the memories I have from that wonderful celebration night can't be beat!  EPCOT is a great park for the older crowd as you will be able to purchase your glass of champagne and toast the new year as you circle the World Showcase.  This is tradition with many people and they can't do this at the Magic Kingdom.

    Both parks will have superb fireworks and laser shows that are extra special that night.  You will have so much fun and enjoy your New Years Eve celebration!
