All-night party at Magic Kingdom kept us busy until sunrise

Posted on
Staying up late is always a treat for young kids, but having no bedtime and getting to play all night in the Magic Kingdom? What a way to start the unofficial beginning of summer! For the second year, Walt Disney World kicked off Memorial Day weekend by keeping its signature theme park open for 24 continuous hours, and my family and I were there. (The first such event celebrated Leap Day in 2012.)

My family’s experience at Walt Disney World’s Monstrous Summer All-Nighter

Posted on
How long could two kids and their parents last at the Magic Kingdom when the theme park was open 24 hours? We set out to find out Friday at the Monstrous Summer All-Nighter. My husband and I are night owls, routinely staying up until 3 a.m. or later, so that was in our favor. However, both our 10-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter had a full day of school before we headed to the Magic Kingdom in the afternoon, so they were tired. But they were really excited about the event, so that adrenaline helped fuel their determination to stay awake. When we arrived about 4:30 p.m., the Transportation and Ticket Center parking lot was already about two-thirds full. I wondered if the park would close because of capacity crowds at some point, but we continued to see folks arriving all night.
