    Closed at 5:00 p.m. today?

    While we were at the MK today they posted the park closing down at 5:00 p.m. Does anyone know why? We asked a CM but all they said was a "special event".

    We were just curious who rented out all of Magic Kingdom.

    I don't think it's D23's Flowers & Fireworks event.

    I was told there was a convention. I was on one of those conventions a few years ago and it was really great having 50 people sharing ToT, Muppets, and Rock N Roller Coaster for 4 fun filled hours.

    Seems like it was a press event for Summer Nightastic. Bill linked me to this picture:

    Thank you! That certainly explains the increase in management employees walking around the parks as well.
