Magic Kingdom - December 3rd - EMH

Hello -
I am planning on visiting the Magic Kingdom on Monday, December 3rd (my day begins at Crystal Palace at 8:30!) and noticed that once again the hours changed. Originally I saw that they had EMH until 11 pm - now it is open to 1 am! I am thrilled to find out, but was curious as to why they extended the park hours? Does it have something to do with the parade? Also, is anything parade related going on that day? I know the Monday after the parade taping weekend is normally used for a rain date.

Thank you,
Keith

They add hours when they see a higher number of guests will be there.

They have done this the last few years. There is not an official reason given, but it is most likely because so many guests complain about Magic Kingdom closing at 7 on party nights.

And let me tell you - we have tried to go to the late EMH twice and it was PACKED!!!!
There were so many people that we were not able to get further than the first Emporium entrance and that took over 30 minutes.

Doh. I'm planning to go there on that day. I hope that perhaps your experience was not the norm at 11pm+.
