In the past, the Magic Kingdom would close at 7pm on days when Disney presented Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Now, sources report that Disney will close the park one hours earlier – at 6pm instead of 7pm. This means that day guests may have less time to enjoy the park on nights when the Christmas Party takes place. In 2017, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will take place on 24 evenings from November 9 to December 22.
Disney probably wants a more orderly way to clear day guests out of the park, but this also means day guests won’t get to stay as late.
