    Why does Magic Kingdom close at 4:30 on 11/17/16?

    Howdy, Lisa!

    On occasion, a Walt Disney World theme park will close for special or private events. Sometimes, for Cast Members only and other times for corporate events. No specific information has been released about what is happening in the park on this day in November. 

    But no worries, Lisa! Enjoy spending the day in the Magic Kingdom or any other park of your choice. The time of year that you will be visiting there will be fewer crowds allowing you to enjoy the magic without having to wait in long lines for battle the large crowds. 

    I would suggest to still visit the Magic Kingdom that day, as the crowds may even be lower than normal as people choose not to go to a theme park if it closes earlier than normal. 

    Enjoy the magic and make the most of your time at the Magic Kingdom while it's open!

    Happy planning,
