    We're visiting the first week of May and I noticed Magic Kingdom is closing at 7pm on that Saturday. Is there something special going on that night that we might want to attend or should we plan on going to a different park with later hours that day?

    Hi there Lori!

    Well, you are right, the Magic Kingdom Park does close early the last weekend of April and first weekend of May! I wasn't 100% sure why so I did some searching and I was right all along. Disney has been holding a special party for Graduating High School Seniors for many years and that celebration happens to fall on the dates you are going to Walt Disney World. Unless you are with a youth group and have applied to be a part of the festivities you'll have to find another park to hang out in late night. Here is the information from the Disney site about Disney Grad Nights.

    I hope this information helps you with your planning and if you have more questions, please ask away, we are always here to help! Have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
