    Why is the magic kingdom closing at 4:30pm on Nov. 30? Is there a special event? It is not a MVMCP day.

    Hi Maite,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Occasionally, one of the theme parks will close early for a private event. I believe that is the case on this date at Magic Kingdom. I have seen some references to that being the evening of the annual Walt Disney World service celebration for cast members.

    I would guess that crowds might be light at Magic Kingdom on that day among those who do not have parkhopper tickets. If you do, it might be a terrific day to play at Magic Kingdom early, then move to Epcot, which is open until 9:30 p.m. 

    I hope that helps with your planning, Maite. Please let us know if we can help in any way with dining recommendations, FastPass+ suggestions or any other aspect of your vacation. Enjoy!
