    We are checking in on Saturday April 3, 2010 about 3pm and plan to go to Magic Kingdom since they have the latest hours that day. I know this will be a busy time and I was wondering if the parks ever get too full that they don't let anyone else in? Thanks

    Hi, Kristie!  We're arriving on the same day for our spring break vacation!

    There are occasions where the theme parks do fill to capacity and they do not allow additional guests to enter the parks until other guests leave.  It is a gradual process to close the theme park, however.  The theme parks close in stages, and because spring break is different for different schools, you may still find you will be able to get into the Magic Kingdom on Saturday, even if you are arriving later in the day.

    The theme park will close first to guests who have not already purchased theme park passes, and the last stage before closing still allows Walt Disney World resort guests using Walt Disney World transportation to gain entry to the park.  If for some reason the park is already closed to capacity, you can still go to one of the other theme parks!

    I will keep my fingers crossed that you have no trouble getting into the Magic Kingdom and enjoying your first evening.  Sending you a little bit of pixie dust!

    Enjoy a magical vacation!
