    I am planning on being at the Magic Kingdom on Christmas Day, 2013. I am wanting to know is if I leave around 2:00 will I be able to return in the evening so that we may be able to enjoy the holiday lights at night. Thank You

    Pat, a Magic Kingdom Christmas has festive magic, characters on parade, and Santa!

    On a typical day, guests may leave and reenter the Magic Kingdom multiple times with a basic ticket. Christmas Day, however, is not typical but is perhaps the busiest day of the year for this classic theme park. Due to the high number of visitors the Magic Kingdom does often reach capacity on December 25. When the park is full, no one is allowed to enter the Magic Kindom. Not even guests who were admitted earlier in the day. So the answer to your question is possibly. If the park is not at capacity, you may return in the evening to see the lights. If the park is full, you will not be able to reenter.

    I hope you get the chance to enjoy the park in the dark.
