How busy is it? We will only be there 3 days, 2 nights and want to make the most of it. Should we go after New Years?

Mobbed. Absolutely swamped. From what I understand, the parks often close early in the day because they are at capacity. Definitely not the time to make the most of a trip - the lines for rides must be unbelievable.

Can you wait a couple of weeks after New Years and go then?

Thanks, I'll wait then. I want this trip to be enjoyable, and the date is not set in stone.

My friend goes every year. Most years, Magic Kingdom is closed for capacity and they end up at EPCOT. I'd avoid it like the plague.

We will be there during that time but we are going for 1 week, so we probably will do a less popular park that day to avoid the crowds. I asked our Disney Reservations person how crowded it is during that time and that is what he suggested to do. He said a lot of local people come to the park on the 31st just for the celebrations so since we have time, we should do a less popular park and save Magic Kingdom and EPCOT for another day.
