    We will be spending New Year's Eve 2013 in the Magic Kingdom. The 12/2013 calendar says that 12/20/13 the MK hours are 8am-2am; however on New Year's Eve 2013 it says that the MK hours are 8am-12am. Is this a typo? Will the MK really close at 12am NYE?

    Michele, this will be the New Year's Eve you all remember. Instead of watching the ball drop in Times Square on television you will be right in the middle of the excitement in the Magic Kingdom!

    Currently the Magic Kingdom is scheduled to close at midnight on 12/31/13. Based on past times the park has closed on the night the new year begins, however, my guess is the MK's operating hours will change as the date approaches. New Year's Eve is one of the most popular nights of the year for this classic theme park, so chances are the park will stay open later.

    Enjoy ringing in 2014 with Mickey!
