    I’m trying to book dinner reservations for October 22, 2019 in Magic Kingdom but can’t seem to get anything past 5pm. I’ve checked that the MNSSHP isn’t scheduled for that day. Is there an event or early closing for that date? Should we skip MK that day?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley!

    How exciting that you will be traveling to the Most Magical Place on Earth next month!  My family and I were at Magic Kingdom just two short days ago and I miss it already.  I don't think if they were open 24 hours each day I would feel like I had enough time for all the Dole Whips, Space Mountain rides and fireworks that I really want!

    On October 22, 2019, Magic Kingdom operating hours are from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm with extra magic hours from 7:00 am to 8:00 am that morning.  There is not a scheduled special event taking place that evening, but it appears that a 6:00 pm kiss goodnight is currently scheduled several times that week.  Hours are subject to change, so be sure to check your My Disney Experience Mobile App for the most current hours when you arrive.

    If you are looking for more park time after Magic Kingdom closes this day, you can add the Park Hopper option to your tickets (if you haven't already) and visit one of the other three parks that have operating hours until 9:00 pm or 10:00 pm that same evening.  It may be a great opportunity to check out the new fireworks show, Epcot Forever.

    Or, if you are looking to spend a longer, full day at Magic Kingdom and are flexible with your dates, the park is open until 10:00 pm on October 23rd.  If you like seeing Cinderella Castle lit up at night like me, this may be a better option for you!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
