The elimination of most AP’s not being able to go certainly has helped with the 2 weeks of Christmas break, but in 2018, it was incredibly cold and the wind was awful, and New Year’s Eve and the day before were two of the worst days. We left early because of these conditions, and I know many others did too. Disney announced in the afternoon that the fireworks would be cancelled New Year’s Eve because of the wind, so I think a lot of guests left early, so that decreased the crowd level. I wouldn’t depend on that in the future. It’s usually VERY busy New Year’s Eve, well the whole week between Christmas and New Year’s, but it is better than it was before the AP block out. The lines are long, but getting around the park was much easier. The walkways were manageable. This showed me that most of the guests were tourists and not local AP’s.
