Where in the "World" Would You Like to Spend NYE?

Bella's question about everybody's plans got me thinking: where would you spend NYE at WDW if you could, and money was no option? Here's a rundown of some of the options.

They've also added an event at DisneyQuest:

I think I'd prefer Epcot...but then, don't I always? But then again, Cali Grill sounds pretty awesome...but I think it would be fun to be in the park for the midnight celebration. biggrin

I'd probably opt for the Kingdom. That would probably be most special for me.

I agree! Starting 2011 off in MK would be a great way to kick it off!

Definately in the MK. I'd probably join the crowds in front of the castle for the countdown.

Maybe we could watch from California Grill? Might not be so hectic!

I've only been to WDW once during New Years. We spent that evening in Epcot, and up until the Rally to Restore Sanity, I think it was the most people I've ever seen in one place at one time. If you can imagine it, the entire walk from the bridge to Futureland around through Norway was a solid mass of people - it took nearly 45 minutes to walk that far -- and this was around 5 in the afternoon. It was INSANE.

Given that, I prefer my New Years at home or a small house party!

If I WAS in Disney World, I would probably have to go with the Magic Kingdom too, though choose someplace off to the sides for the countdown!

I know, right? And doesn't the menu sound AMAZING? DH thinks they've lost their minds with that price, though.

*Sigh* - yes, the crowds would drive me batty...not to mention trying to get back to the car. If I were going to be there for NYE, I think I'd definitely want to book a room at the Beach Club!

Holy crap that's crowded! I agree I love WDW but I much prefer to spend these two weeks at home...safe and without having to be attacked by strollers.

I like the idea of having a hotel room booked! I think I'd go to MK and walk back to the Contemporary after toasting the new year (with apple juice, of course...since I'm at the MK... laugh )

Wouldn't it be fun to have a WDWforgrownups party one of these years on NYE? A big rendezvous of our little forum. I like the Beach-at-the-Poly AND the MK-and-back-to-the-Contemporary ideas both!

I hadn't thought about that! Good point! It wouldn't be a big deal for me, but I can imagine that would be a deal-breaker for a lot of people.

Ha - by the time we could work out the logistics, our kiddoes will probably be grown Smile And a champagne toast on the Poly Beach - perfect! (assuming we don't get one of those freak cold snaps)
