    I am wondering...we have a 5:00 pm dinner planned at Chef Mickey's in the Contempory Resort on New Years Eve, but I don't want to be locked out of Magic Kingdom for the rest of the eve if it fills up. Is Contempory part of Magic Kingdom or am I risking it?

    Hi Kristina,

    There are indeed certain times of year like Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, when the parks are extremely crowded. Whilst it is impossible to predict if a park will reach capacity on any particular day, if a park does reach capacity and is closed, no further guests will be admitted to that park.

    Chef Mickey's is located inside Disney's Contemporary Resort hotel. You will have to exit the Magic Kingdom theme park in order to get there.

    There are four levels of closure at the Disney parks. I would recommend that you stop to ask a Cast Member before you leave the Magic Kingdom if it has already or is likely to reach capacity. You will then be able to make a decision based on the information provided.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
