    We will be in WDW during the busiest week of the year, from 12/29 to 1/2.I am most worried about 12/31.We have late reservations at Hollywood Studios, but are worried about the park filling to capacity.Does having a reservation guarantee admission parks?

    Christopher, my man. Fret not! Hollywood Studios hasn't closed due to capacity on New Year's Eve in years. Matt from often touts the benefits of spending New Year's Eve at the Studios for reasons such as:
    • Fewer instances surrounding capacity - the Studios are often overlooked for Magic Kingdom and Epcot
    • Special fireworks at midnight
    • Two showings of Fantasmic
    • Live music performed by Mulch, Sweat and Shears at the Sorcerer's Hat
    • Special drink carts with beer and other adult beverages throughout the park (not the case at Magic Kingdom)

    The site has a good description of the four park closing phases. An advance dining reservation will get you into the park for stages 1, 2 and 3.
