Magic Kingdom has closed at 4pm to arriving guests who are park hopping from one of the other Walt Disney World theme parks.

This is the first time since park hopping was introduced with Disney Park Pass that hopping from another park has not been possible.

Sources tell WDWMAGIC that attendance numbers are in the low 40,000's today, the highest since the magic Kingdom reopened from the COVID-19 shutdown.

With the public debut of 'Disney Enchantment' tonight, many guests are remaining in the park, and hopping from other parks when it was possible between 2pm and 4pm.

You can check the status of parking hopping at any time from 407 560-5000.

Magic Kingdom is open until 11pm tonight, with 'Disney Enchantment' showing at 9pm.

I like it. Now sell it. Nice park art is hard to come by.

Week i was there using the Monorails ( week of Oct. 1st ) there were live and recorded announcements. Standard ones, nothing 'new' or 50th related....and i was okay with that. Some things can be left untouched. -

We had a trip to MK a few weeks ago. There was no Monorail announcements at all.

Any news on the EARidescence collection? I thought I saw news a while ago that is was to be released Oct 18.

I recreated the 50th gradients as an Illustrator exercise and turned them into some wallpapers. Thought I'd share them. Download away if you're into that sort of thing...

Seems to depend on if Chapek is in the right mood at the given time.

Do they even play that anymore? We heard none of it last week on the monorail.

In all the different iterations they always kept Jack Wagner's safety warning just listen to the start of these for example.. They can always keep the soundbite no matter what is happening..

Not just a Disney problem, but I suspect a lot of this has to do with global supply chain issues that are really beyond anyone's control...

Is it though? I could see a lot of people upset if they got rid of the iconic voice of the monorails for the 50th.. I mean, how could you have a different voice saying "Please Stand Clear of the Doors, Por favor mantenganse alejado de las puertas" for the 50th anniversary?
