Disney will be testing revised park closing times on Magic Kingdom Party nights this year in an attempt to improve the arrival experience for party guests.
According to multiple sources, on nights when the Magic Kingdom is hosting Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, the park will close this year at 6 PM to day guests.
The party will begin as normal at 7 PM, but only guests with tickets to the party will be able to ride attractions after 6 PM. Day guests will still be able to shop and dine until 7 PM however.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has not announced the use of revised hours as of yet, and is scheduled to close at 7 PM for day guests.
