There is nothing quite like nighttime in the Disney Parks. The Parks truly comes alive at night with illuminated attractions and magical nighttime entertainment. As Guests prepare touring plans for an upcoming trip, they often consult the crowd calendar on Character Locator and hours for each park.

Park hours remain somewhat consistent from week to week. Special ticketed events such as Halloween and Christmas parties can cause Magic Kingdom to close earlier on select nights. When Guests are planning their trips to the Disney Parks, these early Park closings are a big consideration in developing their touring plans.

Tonight one attraction will be affected by an early closure in the Magic Kingdom.

Tonight, May 26th, the Magic Kingdom will welcome guests until 11:00 pm. One attraction, however, will close early. This is not due to a ride malfunction or routine maintenance but rather for a private event.

Back in March, we noticed that Storybook Circus closed early for a private event. The next day, photos surfaced of a rare Dumbo character greeting guests at this private event. Tonight, guests visiting the Magic Kingdom will notice that Under the Sea: the Journey of the Little Mermaid closes at 7:00 pm.

This unexpected early closing may be a bit inconvenient for some guests. Guests are encouraged to utilize the My Disney Experience app for Park hours and showtimes.

Tonight, guests visiting the Magic Kingdom will notice that Under the Sea: the Journey of the Little Mermaid closes at 7:00 pm.

  1. Disney making more money having things unavailable to regular paying guests. So many special nights for Halloween and the holidays (not that these aren’t great but really expensive) as well as other times the parks closes more and more for special events.
    Seems I am seeing less and less for the regular park goer and more and more for those who have the money to pay for special privileges.hopefully this is for a charitable event.
    Sorry I am really down on Disney and their money grabs
