    I am planning to visit Magic Kingdom on Dec 18, Sunday. That day the park closes at 6:00pm and Fireworks are starting at 7:30, does that mean I won’t be able to see the Fireworks? I was looking forward to the fireworks, kindly help me through this.

    Hi Vailisha! Welcome to planDisney.

    Next weekend you will be immersed in all the festive cheer at Walt Disney World Resort. This is a very busy time of the year, so have a game plan. I would consider purchasing Disney Genie+ Service for your visit to Magic Kingdom Park to help maximize your park day. You can add this service to your Theme Park Ticket any time after midnight on the day of your Disney Park Pass Reservation. Beginning at 7:00 AM you will be able to start making Lightning Lane selections.

    Magic Kingdom Park will close on your scheduled visit for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. After 6:00 PM Cast Members will assist in creating a one-way flow to allow day guests to start heading for the exit. As long as you are in line for attractions before 6:00 PM, you will be allowed to ride that attraction. My tip is to get in line right before six. I am sorry to tell you, however, without a party ticket, you will not be allowed to remain in the park. You could definitely catch some of the show at one of the monorail loop resorts like Disney's Contemporary Resort, which is a short walk from the park exit.  Alternatively, you could head to the beach at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for a great view as well.

    Consider adding the Park Hopper® Option to your theme park ticket. This way once Magic Kingdom Park closes, you could head to another park like EPCOT. Currently, the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is in full swing. This would give you plenty of time to catch the nighttime spectacular Harmonious later in the evening.

    Keeping it Magical,
