    On days where the park is closing early for a party, like Mickey's Not So Scary, will they start kicking non party guests out of ride lines? When is the latest you could get in a line?

    Hi Julie! That is a great planning question! By asking questions such as yours, you are going to be well-prepared for your upcoming visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Magic Kingdom Park will close at 6:00 PM on nights when a holiday party is planned. Day Guests visiting Magic Kingdom Park on the same day as a holiday party such as Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, can get in line for an attraction up until just before the 6:00 PM closing time. As long as you are in line for an attraction before closing time, you will be able to ride that attraction. If the 6:00 PM closing time has arrived (or passed) after you exit the attraction, you will need to make your way out of the park at that time. The special-ticketed holiday parties will begin at 7:00 PM.

    The holiday season is one of my favorite times to visit Magic Kingdom Park, even without a holiday party ticket! The park is magically decorated for both Halloween and Christmas! Day Guests visiting during the holiday season, but not attending the holiday parties, can still enjoy the festive décor of Magic Kingdom Park! 

    Happy Planning!
