Magic Kingdom Has an Operation Change Due to Halloween Crowds

With the crowds that are flooding to the Disney Parks for Halloween, the Magic Kingdom made a change to its operations.

There’s nothing quite like a Disney holiday and Disney celebration. And there’s nothing like a Disney World crowd during the holidays; Guests flock to Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom during this time.

Whether it’s the celebration of Hispanic and Latin American Heritage Month or even Disney’s long and spectacular 50th Anniversary celebration of the Walt Disney World Resort, the Walt Disney Company knows how to bring that quintessential flavor to any holiday for its Guests.

With the number of people heading to the Disney Park to take in the wonderful Halloween celebrations (that are also scoring points with fans across the country in the Disneyland Resort), the Magic Kingdom has had to make a change to its operations schedule.

As many Guests know, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is one of the biggest parts of the Disney Halloween celebration. Per the Disney Parks Blog, it’s a time when “ghosts and ghouls of all ages are invited to don their favorite costumes and celebrate all things haunted during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

Earlier this year, we at Disney Fanatic reported that tickets were selling out for the Halloween bash, and now as it turns out, something completely new happened with the party, and all tickets are sold out. As a result, the Disney Park has made a slight operational change.
