Likely the closure was a buy out for the Gary Sinise Foundation Snowball Express 2023. Event attendees have been in the park for the past couple of days. Good cause for deserving kids who’ve lost a lot.

I wish I had seen your post a few days ago. That sudden closure pretty much ruined some of my plans for that trip. :mad::banghead:

MK closes at 6, AK at 7 and Epcot at 9:30. Epcot is the only option.

Pop Warner will have buyouts this year of SeaWorld on the nights of 10/5 & 10/6

Back in the day one night in December , Pop Warner football with 10K kids and chaperones had full use of MGM Studios one night including all I can eat .

I agree, but They. Don’t. Care.

Double dipping again. If parks are closing early for a private event, ticket price should reflect that, or guests at HS should have free park hopping from 7pm to until close at another park to accommodate for this.

They haven't released dining reservations for anything in Studios except Oga's on that day.

It's very odd that they are closing DHS early on the same night as MVMCP. I was hoping they were doing this to add a Jollywood Night, but I guess not. There is also zero availability for Hollywood and Vine that whole day, as if the place is closed.

Seems to explain the lack of their hard ticket event that week.
