Epcot on New Year's Eve

What's better than spending a day in Disney World?  Well... spending NYE in Disney World.. I swear this is the best NYE I've had since moving to the United States 15 years ago...
Our initial idea was to visit Magic Kingdom and spend NYE there, but the crowds were so crazy that the park collapsed and closed at 3pm so nobody else could get in... Apparently Magic Kingdom reached capacity and the entrance was restricted.. oh well.. maybe next time...
The second choice was Epcot, and oh boy was that an awesome idea... crowds were just as crazy and even the restrooms had lines... everywhere you looked there was a child throwing a tantrum or a wild line for a bar.. the waiting period for the rides averaged 90-120 min and everyone was being loud with noise makers and party hats.. BUT it was AMAZING...
Every pavilion had a stage set up with live music and such a great party atmosphere.. of course everything was kid-friendly as well as adult-friendly...we had such a great time dancing and jumping around.. and so did the girls...
Around 11:40pm, they had an impressive firework display, which lasted until the New Year... the display was quite amazing... like nothing I've seen before...I even cried.. it was great!
For anyone who wants to spend an out of this world NYE.. I strongly recommend Epcot.. I know I'll be there next year! ;)
