    Following you advice, we decided to go to MK on July 3rd and HS on July 4. We have Fantasmic Dining reservations also. Any advice on when we could get away with taking a break on July 4th so the small kids can get a nap? I want to be able to get back in!

    Hi Nasheena!

    Thank you for sending me this question directly.  Unfortunately, I don't have a good answer for you.  It really depends on how busy Walt Disney World will be this year and specifically how busy Disney's Hollywood Studios will be.  The Studios has closed in the past due to capacity; this could happen again this coming 4th of July.  The park closes "in stages" but at the ultimate stage, nobody can get in, regardless of whether or not you have a dining reservation.

    What I recommend doing is to plan to stop in Guest Relations inside Disney's Hollywood Studios in the afternoon and ask how the Magic Kingdom is doing.  The Magic Kingdom typically closes due to capacity before any other theme park.  If it is closed, then in my opinion, you definitely should just stay in the Studios and not leave!

    I know this isn't the answer you were looking for!  Sorry and please write back with more questions!
