    Why does the magic kingdom close at 9pm in June from 11 pm in earlier months?

    Hi Lisa,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us!

    When I checked the Park Hours for June, Magic Kingdom was open until 11:00 p.m. on the first few days in June and then it is open until 10:00 p. m. thereafter. On June 21st and 28th Magic Kingdom has Extra Magic Hours from 10:00 p.m. until 12:00 a.m. 

    Hopefully, these hours will work for you! Remember to double-check the park hours just before your trip. We love to make pre-park opening Dining Reservations so that we can get into the park just before the crowds descend. 

    Magic Kingdom has a new fireworks show, Happily Ever After, that is scheduled to debut May 12th and a relatively new early morning show called Let the Magic Begin. Guests can now enter the park one hour prior to park opening to enjoy the shops on Main Street and watch the show just before park opening.

    I hope this helps!

    Have a magical time!
