The Magic Kingdom has been at capacity several times this week. This morning the park was forced to close for a “Phase A” closure after only being open for two hours. This is typical for this time of year since the week between Christmas & New Years is Disney’s busiest time of the year. I’ve heard reports that the Walt Disney Company even managed to make over $1 billion dollars this past weekend! I expect more closures for Magic Kingdom & possibly the other Walt Disney parks throughout this weekend. If you’re planning to stop by Walt Disney World, or already there, make sure to take this into account and keep an eye out on the Behind Magic <a href=”https://twitter.com/BehindMagicBlog” target=”_blank”>Twitter</a>. for news on closures.
The holiday season is one of the best times of the year to visit Walt Disney World. There’s nothing quite like strolling along Main Street USA with Christmas music playing in the background (and it might even be snowing!!). I count the holiday season at Disney World as something everyone should experience at least once in their lives (every year would be even better!). Each of the parks has its own holiday traditions & decor. Hit the jump to see how you could be spending the holidays at Walt Disney World.
Over the last few days Disney has updated rules for it’s US parks and installed metal detectors outside the entrance to each park. It’s unknown if these changes are permanent or just for the holidays since the week after Christmas is the busiest time of the year at both Disney World & Disneyland Resort. Hit the jump for details on the new security procedures and what to expect for your next visit to the parks.
