    Why is Magic Kingdom closing at 7:00 pm rather than 9:00 pm on May 30, 2024?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sherri. We appreciate you being here. 

    As far as I can see, the opening times for May 2024 are yet to be confirmed at Magic Kingdom Park. I checked out if there are any special events due to take place on this date, like Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park and can see nothing scheduled for May 30, 2024. 

    Occasionally private events can close the Parks early. I can't confirm this is the case yet at Magic Kingdom Park, but from the 31st March 2024, I expect the Park hours to be released for your desired date in May. You can double-check on the website for accurate opening times. All is not lost if there is an earlier closing time on this date, as you may experience quieter crowd levels during the day for this exact reason. Indeed, many Disney aficionados swear by this little tip. If there is an earlier closing time, Happily Ever After might not be showing. A Park Hopper ticket could help you to continue the fun over at EPCOT where you can catch its new show, Luminous The Symphony of Us. Alternatively, this planDisney podcast talks through the great entertainment options at Disney Springs

    Sherri, I'm sorry this may not have been quite the pixie-dusted answer you hoped for! I wish you all the best so that you enjoy all the enchanting memories available at Magic Kingdom Park
