    Does the Magic Kingdom close early when they have Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party? I know that you need to buy tix for it and you will get a wristband, but I was wondering how they control the crowds from those not paying for it?

    Hi Tawn!
    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is available on select nights in both November and December, and it runs from 7PM-12AM. On party nights, the park does close to guests without "hard tickets" at 7PM. This is announced over the public address system. Day guests who are not staying for the party are able to still shop, eat, and linger about, but they will no longer be able to ride the attractions. This is ensured by Cast Members checking for party wristbands at the entrance to each ride.
    This ensures that only "party" guests ride the attractions, and eventually, not being able to ride, day guests will make their way to the exit.
    I hope this helps a bit and I wish you a Magical (& Merry) vacation!! :)
