    Just as an FYI-
    I made my brother go to Magic Kingdom with me ON Christmas Day 2 years ago. We had a FANTASTIC time. However, it was SO PACKED! I did not think anyone would be there, that everyone would be at home with their families.
    WRONG!! By 1pm they had closed the entrance because the park had reached capacity. It was really busy. The lines for EVERYTHING were really long.
    This was just a head's-up. Again, Carl and I had a great time, the weather was GORGEOUS (I wore jeans and a light sweater, Carl was in jeans and a t-shirt). Plus, it was fun to walk down Main Street with all the decorations up and a cup of hot chocolate in my hands! Plus, they give the afternoon parade a Christmas theme (although it's NOT THE Christmas parade you see on t.v.)
    I just thought I'd give fair warning about the size of the crowds. GET THERE EARLY!!

    Yep. That's pretty standard for MK. EPCOT closes sometimes too, but more so for NYE than Christmas.

    Getting there at opening is the best idea. If it's going to be the least bit do-able it will be in the early morning hours. By noon the place is heaving! If you have an ADR for later in the day it's still strongly recommended you arrive early because you will not be allowed in if the gates are closed, ADR not withstanding.

    Christmas Day two years back, MK was closed at 10.30am! We had to go to Epcot instead where we had fish and chips for Christmas dinner! :lol:
