The Animal Kingdom park closed its gates after reaching capacity at roughly 1pm on December 17th, 2006. The park has since reopened its gates but remains very crowded.
Update 24 Dec 2006: We’ve heard that the Animal Kingdom was closed because of a lack of employees to staff carts, restaurants, and some rides, not necessarily crowds. Peak wait times at Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safaris were 40-50 minutes, even when the park was closed to new visitors.
