    Hi, does anyone know why MK closes early on Tuesday April 17, 2018? Is there a special event?

    Hi Julianne and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You brought a great question about the early closing of the Magic Kingdom Park and I’m happy to say I have some answers for you.

    I spoke to a cast member and the reason the Park is closing at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April, 17, 2018, is because there is private event scheduled. Since that date is still a few months away, closing times are still subject to change. I suggest you keep an eye on the park hours calendar to make sure you have the most recent schedule for the Magic Kingdom. 

    In the meantime, there’s still plenty of fun to be had at the Walt Disney World Resort on that date. You can see what’s blooming at the 2018 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. My family is always impressed at how beautiful Mickey and his friends are in the topiary displays! Another plus, the weather has always been nice when we have visited! 

    You may be also be able to enjoy Extra Magic Hours if you are a Disney Resort guest on that date. 

    Julianne, I hope this answers your question! Please feel free to come back anytime!
