We have 9pm reservations at the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert party on May 23rd to view Wishes. Will they change the time for this because they moved up the Wishes time?

I would think they would have to yet. Otherwise there won’t be much of a show ;)

Josh, we were planning on going to HS on April 1st.

What do you think will be the impact on crowds ( if any ) with the additional 1 1/1 hour added at night and the second Fantasmic show? Thanks!

A little busier than it would have been otherwise. It’s open until 930pm every other day that week so the later close won’t be pulling in anyone specifically. If anything, the later close and second Fantasmic makes it easier to see that show or hit the priority attractions later at night after most people have left.

Thank you!

Any idea when they will update the hours on the Disney site reflecting the 24 hour opening of MK on 5/23? I’m going just for this day and it’s making me nervous that nothing is showing those hours…

I’m trying to use my FL-3 day discover pass, and figure out the best day to use day #2 ticket. How does April 26th, Saturday usually pan out in terms of crowd count? Or which day do you think somewhere around there, do you think would be the lowest for the Magic Kingdom? Thanks for any help and advice!
