I need some advice guys. We are planning on going to Magic Kingdom on New Years Eve. I originally thought my mom would watch our son, but now she has other plans. Is it horrible for me to want to take our (then) 3 and a half year old with us? I know it will be jam packed and am scared I won't even be able to move with a stroller. Where would be the best place to park? Would I be able to get back to DTD that late or no? I am just so confused on what to do and beginning to think my sons first trip is going to be such a failure. I was the one who picked to go at Christmas time but I just wanted to experience Disney at least once for the holidays. Sorry for the rant, I am having such a hard time planning this trip.

Been there at New Years a few times, and yes it is crowded, but a stroller is do-able. It may be a different type of trip for you, but I figure he will have a blast! Great picture:) - MsMode  35.8 #131 1:33PM
I agree.. it will be crowded but not to the point you won't enjoy yourself. Just leave extra time to get to reservations, shows, rides, etc. And, pack some things to keep your little one occupied, snacks, drinks, etc. for when you do have to wait. - mrsincredible  1338.9 #4 1:58PM
I agree. Allow time to get anywhere. And pack a suitcase of patience. Your son will have as great of a time as you have if you keep a positive attitude about the crowds. I'm not a crowd lover, but I'm sure the holiday decor and atmosphere will be worth it! - DizneyGirl  1009.5 #8 2:22PM
Thank you guys. Do you think it is wrong of me to keep him out so late? I feel like because we will be at WDW it is an exception. I guess I shouldn't care what other people think. - kayxobelle  231.5 #40 3:16PM
Nah, he'll probably be tuckered out in his stroller after a long day. Let him sleep and enjoy yourself! We had a great time walking MNSSHP after 10:30, when Jonah (now 6, then 4) crashed on us. - mrsincredible  1338.9 #4 3:43PM
You'll be fine. Go have fun - 5disneylovers  1197.2 #6 3:45PM
Have a great time !!!! It will be a wonderful experience !!!!!!! - skcanfield  589.2 #14 4:28PM
Thanks. I don't know why I stress myself out. I guess it's fear of the unknown. But then again, I'm sure he will have a blast! - kayxobelle  231.5 #40 4:29PM
I did the exact same thing in June when we took my 2yo for the first time. Had anxiety about the plane ride, how he'd sleep at night in the hotel pack n play, if he'd be fussy during the day because he got off his schedule, etc. NONE of that was an issue when we got there. He had the time of his little life!! So much so, he has talked about Disney World every single day since and we are going back in October to let him experience the magic one last time this year. - mrsincredible  1338.9 #4 3:03AM
The beauty of the stroller is that when he gets tired he can go right to sleep! Saw ( and was a little jealous) many a little one sacked out in the evening at WDW :) - MsMode  35.8 #131 4:35PM
I went to disney with my family a LONG LONG time back when i was a little little girl! I had a BLAST!!!!!! I see pictures and i danced my little butt off. Hell be fine! - Boardwalkgirl  58.9 #101 6:18PM
I have been at DL on NYE and I wouldn't do it again. Too crazy for me. We go at that time. And we spend the morning and afternoon at the park. Then we leave and have dinner elsewhere and enjoy the night somewhere else. I couldn't handle the crowds on Main Street with my little ones. I was freaking out. But other people love the crowds. - PracticallyPerfectLisa  122.9 #3242 7:44AM
You will be fine and will have a great time. DL is much more crowded than WDW. Thats why I prefer WDW when the kids are off. Just take advantage of the fastpasses and magic hours. It will be your best new years ever - Disneyaddict  374.7 #640 9:48AM
