Magic Kingdom Closes Early For Jam-Packed Cast Member Event
If you were following along with us here at MickeyBlog yesterday you may have seen our post regarding Magic Kingdom closing early this evening for EARidescent Evenings a special night at the parks exclusively for cast members.
There is signage up throughout the park alerting non-cast members of the early closure. This would also be reflected in the My Disney Experience app.
When we arrived at Magic Kingdom, special queue areas were being roped off for cast members arriving for special after hours events.
It was a bustle of activity and it looks as if Magic Kingdom is expecting a large amount of employees this evening.
Inside the parks, it was a bustle of activity.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the parks so busy.
Just look at the crowds on Main Street USA.
There was absolutely no room to stroll through the Emporium on Main Street U.S.A.
With regulars guests leaving and cast members entering it was a very busy thoroughfare.
We can’t wait to find out more about this special After Hours exclusive cast member offering.
Previously Disney CEO Jeff Vahle said that this was a way of celebrating Disney World’s 50th Anniversary and thanking Cast Members.
We know a few cast members planning on taking part in tonight’s special event so we’ll keep you posted as to what the night held.
In addition to tonight’s event, there will be another cast member only event also taking place on Sunday, May 15, 2022 at which point the theme park will close at 4:30pm.
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for further Walt Disney World news and updates.
