Apparently, New Year's Eve is the busiest time of year at the happiest place on earth. A fact that we did not know when booking our trip. The park was at capacity every day we were there (read: 85-90 thousand people). Those of you who know my little idiosyncrasies know that I’m not for close contact with people I don’t know, so this was a bit overwhelming.
Disney has brought back Captain EO, which was one of the major highlights of my trip.
Overall, it's one of the best things I've ever done, worth every penny, minute, and bump in the crowd. I definitely plan on going again (at any time of year other than early January).
Be happy and safe this year!
