    The 24hour event in may at the MK I'd like to know is everything open as in normal park hours? This is my 3rd time from the uk and not heard of a 24 hour event before.

    Greeting to you and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Our family attended the 24 hour event last May and it was truly a unique experience! There was limited edition merchandise, special food items, entertainment not available during normal park operations, and many surprises. We did not make it the full 24 hours with two kids along, but it was exiting just to be there for the several hours we were able to attend.

    Most, but not all, attractions will be open during this year's Coolest Summer Ever 24 hour summer kick-off party. I am not sure if this year will be the same, however last year we were able to make FastPass+ selections for this special day. Even though there are 24 hours to fill with fun, the normal rules still applied. We were able to make 3 selections in advance and then one at a time thereafter. I would highly suggest taking advantage of this planning tool, as it was very busy during this event. I would advise for you to remember in advance that there will be some crowds and expect longer than usual wait times. Just being at Magic Kingdom Park for the event was so much fun. I took the extra time to people watch and see many of the Guests dressed in costumes. We did not dress up, but we wished that we did when we saw so many creative costume ideas. My favorite was Stinky Pete and I also really loved the family themed costumes. They were all so cute!

    Wishing you and your family a magical vacation!
