    The hours listed for the magic kingdom on August 15 are from 9-6:00. But there are no ticketed events taken place. Is this a mistake??

    Hello Karen! I am so glad that you came to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your planning question! We are always happy to help Walt Disney World Resort vacation planners! August is my family's favorite time to visit!

    You are absolutely correct that the posted hours on the Disney Parks Monthly Calendar for August 14, 2020 for Magic Kingdom Park are 9:00AM to 6:00PM. You are also correct that there is not a ticketed event currently posted for that evening. This early closure could mean that the Walt Disney World Resort might be hosting a private event at the park. It could also possibly mean a need for operations to close the park for another unknown reason. Disney Parks operating times are always subject to change so I encourage you to keep checking the Disney Parks Monthly Calendar. It is a great planning tool!

    Karen, I mentioned that August is my family's favorite time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! One of the reasons that we like to visit in August is because this is the start to the Halloween season at Magic Kingdom Park! Yes, you heard that right! Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is held on select dates beginning in mid-August! My family loves this special-ticketed event! Our kids can trick-or-treat through Magic Kingdom Park and there are Halloween-themed parades, fireworks, attractions, and characters! The best perk of this event is that Guests attending the party can enter the park as early at 4:00PM even though the party doesn't begin until 7:00PM!

    Karen, I hope you have a great visit in August! Let the Disney Parks Moms Panel know if you have any additional questions prior to your visit!
