    We will be there for New Year's and have an 8:15pm reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table. We were going to relax at the hotel until the afternoon and come later since it would be a late night, but what happens if the park is closed for capacity?

    Hi Rebecca,

    New Year's Eve at Walt Disney World Resort with a royal dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table? How exciting! This is definitely a must everyone to add to their bucket list. It is on mine!

    The Holiday's at Walt Disney World Resort are indeed the Resort's most visited time of the year, and in the past, there has been a few instances when Magic Kingdom Park reached capacity. Mickey does not like to turn Guests away, so in these rare events, he tries to help Guests staying at Disney Resort Hotels, Annual Passholders and Guests with restaurant reservations or appointments inside the Parks. The only known complete closure of Magic Kingdom Park, was over 10 years ago. You should have no issues, however, plan accordingly as I would expect a few delays at the security check-points, in addition to busy Resort Transportation.

    One last tip: I think this royal experience deserves you travel in style. You should take advantage of the new Minnie Van Service, the only private transportation option that can drop you off right at the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park. Happy planning!
