    When does Magic Kingdom start closing for nightly Halloween celebration?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney. I always love seeing a fellow North Carolinian stop by with questions about a trip to the Most Magical Place On Earth

    Michael, it's exciting to start thinking and planning for the holiday season. That's actually my favorite time of year to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Both Halloween and Christmastime are so festive and fun there. 

    Michael, plans for Halloween festivities at Walt Disney World for this year have not yet been announced. I'd say that we should expect something to come from the Disney Parks Blog a little bit more into spring. Last year, the Disney After Hours Boo Bash ran on select nights between August 10th and October 31st. If you are visiting during that timeframe, however, keep in mind that the party isn't every night. You will be able to enjoy Magic Kingdom Park well into the night between party dates if your travel itinerary allows. Depending on the day, last year the after-hours event started at either 9:00 p.m. or 9:30 p.m. So if that is still the case, even if you have to visit Magic Kingdom Park on a party night, you'll still have a full fun day. On party nights, you can even expect the regular firework show, Disney Enchantment, to be performed before closing to regular day park Guests. 

    It's hard to know what to expect for this holiday season since everything has changed so much within the last few years, Michael. Will Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party return or will it be a version of the all-new Disney After Hours Boo Bash again? We will both just have to wait and see. 

    I hope this helps you plan out your itinerary a little bit better, Michael. If you have any other questions about this or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Boo to you!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
