    Can you please tell me what a park closing time of 7pm means? Will we be able to try for Be Our Guest reservations at 7pm? What times do the shops and rides close? Thank you!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Mom Panel, Christina! Thank you for bringing us your question.

    Typically, when you see the Magic Kingdom closing at 7:00 p.m. a special event is taking place within the park. Special events such as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and Nights of Joy are event which close the Magic Kingdom early.

    The restaurants and attractions will stay open through the 'closing' time. However, you will need a special wristband to ride the attractions and eat at the restaurants signifying you are a party guest.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a magical vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
