Default NYE in the World

I hope nobody minds if I post a trip report, total n00b that I am. Just a quick report and some pictures.

It was just my wife and I. My children are grown and they couldn't get away for various reasons. I had been dying to get back to the World for NYE since 2003/2004. We had a wonderful time that year although it was the whole family back then. Anyway, I planned a trip and if anyone was free I would have squeezed them into my BCV studio. But it wound up being just the two of us.

This trip we experienced the best and worst of Disney.

We met a bunch of wonderful CMs and some really nice fellow guests. But, we also encountered some of the most obnoxious guests I can ever recall in WDW. We saw line cutters, litterers, and a lot of people who can't hold their liquor.

The weather started out beautiful, but turned cold and was miserable and rainy our last day.

We had some pretty good meals. I gave Tony's a try after years of shunning it. My wife had some of the worst Italian food I have ever come across (as I remembered it), but I was in the mood for a steak and the NY Strip was cooked to perfection.

Skipper's Cantina was completely a one and done, but I suppose I had to try it anyway.

Via Napoli was good. Yak and Yeti was good (except for the table next to us who couldn't control their kid). Le Cellier was very good.

Hollywood and Vile was as expected, but I was there for the characters.

The Plaza was the biggest bummer. I was really enjoying the burger there (with onions, pulled beef, provolone cheese, etc) and was just about done, when my wife discovered a long hair in her salad wrapped around an onion. I immediately lost my appetite. Sickening.

All the fireworks were great. Wishes, Fantasy in the Sky, Illuminations, the NYE Illuminations tag, Symphony in the Stars, ...all of them.

It was very, very crowded at times, but the parks stayed open very late and it would get empty. It was also much more empty after NYE.

Finally, NYE was pretty cool. It went pretty much as planned. We had late afternoon fast passes, then dinner and by that time it was party time. We jumped from pavilion to pavilion. Italy and China had DJs and Japan had a silent DJ.

All in all it was a very good trip. Not as magical as I remember from 10 years ago, but it's Disney World on New Year's Eve...still pretty freakin awesome.
