Alert readers will notice an anomaly with the Magic Kingdom park and Extra Magic Hours for August and September, including conflicts with the Pirates and Princess parties.
For example, Disney’s website lists the park’s hours for August 24 as 9 am to 9 pm, with evening EMHs from 9 pm to midnight. But there’s also a Pirates and Princess party scheduled for the same night. Unless that’s going to begin at midnight and run until 5 am, we don’t see how all of those things can happen at the same time.
A call to Disney confirmed that no additional information is currently available. We expect, however, Disney to close the MK at 6 or 7 pm on those nights when Pirates and Princess Party are running, and we expect the MK’s evening EMHs to move from the currently-listed dates.
We’ll update the crowd calendar as soon as we hear more. For now, however, if you’re planning a visit to the parks, assume evening EMHs will move and the park will close early.
