As the crowds filled in, the park began to reach capacity. In order to keep all guests safe Disney begins to implement phase closures as a form of crowd control.
NBC News Radio has also reported that Magic Kingdom is closed and no longer accepting new guests to the park.

When Disney World begins closing the parks, they do so in phases in the following order:
- Phase A Closing
- Phase B Closing
- Phase 1 Park Closing
- Phase 2 Park Closing
- Phase 3 Park Closing
- Phase 4 Park Closing
Most recently we heard that this is a Phase B Closing which means:
- No admission of guests with one-day park tickets
- No re-entry or park-hopping from other parks unless they have one of the following:
- Walt Disney World Resort Reservations
- WDW Passholders
- Guests with Memory Maker
- Guests with Dining Reservations
- Guests with Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Harmony Barbershop, or Pirates League Reservations
- Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Guest with FastPass+ Reservations
