It’s New Year’s Eve and the world watches the most famous ball drop on earth, the Times Square event featuring that 12,000 pound illuminated ball of Waterford crystal. Millions naturally, and over a billion people worldwide will be watching, and that makes for extra considerations.

Across the country, including NYC, demonstrators are planning to return to the streets to protest recent police shootings. There are also the ongoing security precautions in this age of terrorism.

There’s the age old question, once you are locked in a Times Square corral at 5 p.m. for the big event, what if you have to go? ABC’s Aaron Katersky has all the answers, previewing the festivities for you Wednesday morning.

Your Wake Up Call airs every weekday from 6-9 a.m. on AM 820 News in Tampa and 1190 News in Orlando.
